On Sunday, November 10, Bowen (Bo) Joseph Levy passed away peacefully at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. Bo was eight days shy of his 18th birthday and he exited this world exactly as he entered it; surrounded by love and with dignity and grace.

Bowen was the beloved son of Bryan and Tanya Levy, and attended Central Special since he was a preschooler. Bowen lived with autism; however, his condition did not affect his spirit. Blessed with an infectious laugh and boundless energy, Bo made every single person he encountered smile. He possessed a heart of gold and loved his family, eating great food, and everything Elmo. Even Bowen’s last act on earth was one of generosity, as his organs were donated to help save the lives of others. His family takes great comfort knowing that the beating of his heart, the breath in his lungs, and the twinkle of his eyes will live on in others.
Bo is survived by his parents who devoted every single day to ensuring he lived the most wonderful life possible. His two sisters, Addison Levy and Destyn Hughes, loved him deeply and will miss him every day. Bo is also survived by his doting grandparents, Marsha Alton, Alan Levy, Anita Snyder and Dean Moore, as well as countless aunts, uncles and cousins who are blessed for every day they loved, and were loved, by Bo. The world is simply a better place because he was in it.

A private celebration honoring the life of Bowen will be held in the near future. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in his name to the Bowen Foundation for Autism, C/O The Arc of the Central Chesapeake, 1332 Donald Avenue, Severn, MD 21144. The Bowen Foundation was launched in 2007 to improve the lives of children living with Autism in Anne Arundel County and to date has donated more than $400,000 to local families in need.

Although I never met you all my son had attended Central special a few years ago. I recall seeing Bowen either in the hallway or maybe it was a spaghetti dinner at the school. You all are in my thoughts thoughts and prayers. Know he will continue to live on through others and his memory will never fade. God bless you all!

As a substitute teacher, I worked with Bowen over several years. Bowen laugh was most contagious and his personality was amazing. Even though I haven't seen Bowen for about three years now, he touched my heart in so many ways. Bowen did provide a challenge, especially on the playground but was always pleasant. I enjoyed getting to know Bowen and working with him. My condolences to the family. Sincerely, Marilyn Precord

I am so sorry to hear of Bowen's tragic passing. My heart is heavy for his family. He was one of the first students to capture my heart. One of my first "kids", he taught me so many things. He made me a better teacher and a better person. This world is a little duller without him in it.

I was blessed to spend a lot of time with Bowen at his school, as we were both full of energy, and loved to go for walks. I fondly remember holding his hand as we did laps around the school, and also outside, as we both enjoyed that time together. Bowen shared a bit of his lunch with me one day after I told him that he had some really yummy looking lunches from home. I will always treasure that moment that Bowen gave me a piece of his chicken drumstick and green beans, and we laughed together that Ms Julie needed to pack better lunches for herself. He loved when I would sing to him, but I always promised him that I would not quit my day job...Again, more sweet giggles from Bo...Bowen will always have a special place in my heart. This is a picture of Bowen with my son,Jeremy, from a Bowen Foundation 5K run in 2011. Rest in peace, sweet boy...
