Greenwich, Connecticut – TWU Local 100 is mourning the death to the Coronavirus of Bus Driver Bryson Kent Bowman.  Bryson Bowman, 59, worked for Student Transportation of America (STA) since 2017 transporting children to school and back home for Greenwich, Connecticut Schools. Mr. Bowman died on April 4th at Stamford Hospital. A Stamford resident, Bowman was 59 and died as a result of complications caused by the coronavirus.

Mary Pryce, a co-worker and elected member of the Local 100 executive board, recalled Bowman’s always friendly demeanor. “He was always a cheerful person,” Pryce said. “He greeted everyone with that huge smile and when he got off his bus at the end of a shift heading to the office, he always had love for everyone. He loved talking about sports with his co-workers, and was a true Yankee fan,” Pryce said. “We are really going to miss him.”

“We all offer our condolences and prayers for Brother Bowman’s family, his friends and co-workers at STA and to every member and officer of our School Bus Division,” TWU Local 100 President Tony Utano said.

Mr. Bowman was the second member of the organization’s School Bus Division to die from the coronavirus. He is survived by his wife, Patricia, and four children — two girls and two boys.
