|HOWER, Bonnie Lynn Brodeur
Our beautiful daughter Bonnie had her life brutally ripped away from her on June 10, 2010, at age 33. Bonnie is a most precious and beloved daughter, mother, sister, niece, granddaughter, and friend to so many. Bonnie's two children, Hayley, ten years and Tyler, seven years, will never again see their mother's sweet face or feel her loving arms wrapped around them. Bonnie's voice has been stilled. Together in love and in the sharing of deepest grief are mother Sheri Galvez; stepfather Bobby Galvez; father Todd Brodeur; sisters Victoria Galvez and Lana Brodeur; grandparents Mary Kennedy and Larry Ward, Ralph Brodeur, and Marianne Brodeur; aunt Tomar Weaver; and uncles Larry Ward, Mark Ward, and Timothy Ward. This incomprehensible act of violence against Bonnie has brought such a tragic and unnecessary loss to us all. We, in our stunned torment, can only hope that time, indeed, will begin to ease our pain. We will never get over this outrage but can only slowly get past it, whi le this family, and all of Bonnie's friends, can create a new, happy and secure life for Bonnie's two babies in honor of all that was our Bonnie. For now our hearts are crushed. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 19, at Lakeland Funeral Home & Memorial Gardens, 2125 S. Bartow Road. A memorial service will also be held in Sacramento, Calif., at a future date to be announced. Her family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to a trust set up for for Bonnie's children: Bonnie Hower Memorial Account c/o Exchange Bank, 1420 Rockridge Dr., Ste. 190, Roseville, CA 95661, Savings acct #125001272 RT#121101985.

|Police: Man Strangled Wife
Investigators say Bryan Hower of Lakeland killed Bonnie Brodeur Hower because he feared she would leave, take children. By Jeremy Maready
Published: Saturday, June 12, 2010 at 12:01 a.m.
LAKELAND | A Lakeland man was charged Saturday with strangling his wife to death and discarding her body in a hole he dug in the couple's backyard in North Lakeland, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.
Bryan Hower, 33, told investigators he killed Bonnie Lynn Hower, 33, during a fight because he was afraid she would leave and take the couple's children, arrest reports said.
Bonnie Lynn Hower was reported missing about 5 p.m. Friday by her uncle, Timothy Ward, of Jacksonville. Ward said he had been called about 4 a.m. by Hower's daughter who said her mother was missing and her father was acting strange, reports said.
Ward left his Jacksonville home and drove to the couple's house at 4010 Timberlake Road W. north of Lakeland, according to investigators.
When he arrived, Bryan Hower told Ward that his wife was "gone," but told different stories about how she left, so Ward called the Sheriff's Office, the report said.
In one story, Hower told Ward she "left on foot," but then said he saw her get into someone's car and leave, the report said.
A deputy searched the area and found Bonnie Hower's body in a 4- to 5-foot deep hole in woods behind the house, according to the report.
Her purse was buried with her and a hand truck was found near the hole, reports said.
When questioned further, Bryan Hower then told investigators he strangled his wife about 3 p.m. Thursday after she came at him with a knife during an argument in the garage of their home, the report said.
Bryan Hower was arrested and charged with murder in his wife's death, the report said. He is being held without bail in the Polk County Jail. His first court appearance is scheduled for 9 a.m. today.
Bryan Hower said the couple was arguing because Bonnie Hower said she was leaving him and taking the couple's children with her to the beach, the report said.
When she attacked with a knife, Bryan Hower told investigators, he blocked it and took her to the ground in a choke hold, where she tried to grab a wrench.
"He said he covered her mouth with his right hand so the children would not hear the struggle," the report said. "He said he kept squeezing her neck until she stopped moving. Hower stated after the decedent stopped moving, he placed her body in the hole.
"Hower stated multiple times he felt he needed to kill the decedent in order to prevent her from taking their children away from him."
News of Hower's death Saturday stunned neighbors, who said they didn't know the couple well.
Neighbor Hunter Foskey said the couple always seemed cordial, but he never really got to know them.
Foskey would see the couple riding their two horses through the neighborhood and would wave in passing, he said. There was never any indication that there was anything wrong.
"I don't know. These days, it doesn't seem there needs to be something wrong for things to be wrong," he said. "It's such a pointless death."
State records show the couple operated their own company, Red Rock Solutions, that advertised "land and tractor services," such as excavating, mowing and stump removal.
The children, 7 and 10 years old, were placed into the custody of a neighbor Friday night, according to the Sheriff's Office.
The Florida Department of Children and Families is handling the custody issues involving the couple's children.
Family members, who live out of state, have been contacted and are on their way to Lakeland, said DCF spokeswoman Carrie Hoeppner. "Hopefully this is an interim temporary placement until the family gets here."

Bio: What any normal person would do post-high school. Things that one wouldn't care to mention in casual conversation. Nothing to the degree of worthlessness will suffice. Not in the past 6 years, at least.
Trivia: How many pairs of shoes have I gone through in the past 12 years? That might make for "interesting trivia".
Friends: Not that it was an extensive list, but Larry Averitt and Jeremy Miller definitely topped it.
Hobbies: Tearing vehicles apart, putting things into them that weren't meant to be there, then stitching the transportation back together with the means of annoying everyone else in the area with the lovely "boom" sound.
Kids: They don't exist. Nor will they ever exist. Unless you would like to read about the four-legged variety. They make messes, eat too much, and are always in the way.
Grade_school: I did that, yes. Thank you for asking.
Grade_school_friends: If I were still attending EHS, I'd be in SERIOUS trouble.
Junior_high: What a surprise. I did that, as well!
Junior_high_friends: Now we're really pushing it!
Memorable_teachers: I'd insult the instructors by not being able to remember how to properly spell their names. I can voice them to a "T", though that doesn't help us much in this case, does it?
Favorite_memory: All the nerd stuff L, J & I did outside of school, which shaped us into the high-standing members of society which we are, today. Okay, maybe not today. Two weeks ago is more like it.
Story: One time I was driving my truck into town, and saw a rabbit on the side of the road. I thought that was interesting enough to share.

then there were some that did not get to know me because i was the new girl there. So some assumed the worst of me. But one thing that I will never forget, was our graduation. Now I dont remember one of the girls name but i do remember Andrea standing up to help her friend sing.

Jeff and I had another baby last year. (June 18, 2002) She is Emily Mae Tobin. She looks and acts very much like her older brother. We don't have plans for a third yet. We both are still working full-time, so our plates are quite full.
Occupation: Student at Sac State
Bio: After graduation I spent 4 years in the US Navy. I first went to the Great Lakes for Boot Camp, the spent some time in Tennessee for schooling. Then I got transfered to Lamore, CA (near Fresno) which is how I "ran in to" Teresa Buckalew. We spent a lot of time together and were engaged in October of 1996. I was then stationed at Whidbey Naval Air Station up near Seattle Washington. I spent 6 months on the USS Nimitz from Sept of 1997 - March of 1998. In May of 1998, Teresa and I were married in Sacramento. Now I am an electrical engineering student at Sac State.

Occupation: Default Aversion Specialist

I now counsel students & assist them prevent their student loans from defaulting (Don't make me have to call any of ya'll!). Still a full-time (plus) Mom. Still me...but you knew that wouldn't change!
Trivia: Did you know I used to be the mascot?
Friends: Since I stumbled across this great place, I have been reunited with a few of my old chums. I got to out with one of my oldest friends, John Miller (& his wife). I just recently met his beautiful daughter (looks like mom! j/k), Jasmine at Encina's Homecoming game last week. I also got in contact with Jeff McGee (even though he keeps FAKING on us getting together). I also got to speak with Eddey (Ederlina) Co, how I am currently vicariously living through, whether she knows it or not. She's at Georgetown practicing law, making me proud!
So cross your fingers for me as I hope to get in contact with the following people;
Erickson Aquino- My other OLDEST friend, my little 'Poopie', E&E, Where R U?!?!
Monica Maguire- After the wedding.....
Chad Henry- Boy, that had to be the World's Record for the longest CRUSH!

Occupation: pediatric neurosurgeon, ha! just kidding, I'm an x-ray tech.
Bio: Here's a quick update fellow Encinians...Joined the US Air Force in 1999, survived basic training(it was a joke), and now between school and military life, I've been keeping pretty busy. Its funny but I joined the military so they could pay for my school and so I could travel, but somehow I ended back here at Travis AFB, Fairfield, CA. Yippee. But at least they're hooking me up on the school thing tho'. Next year I will apply for Physician's Assistant School(finally) and will be on my way back to Texas(been there for the last 2 years). In the 4 years before the military I was working full time and going to school full-time and involved in a long-term relationship(yes with Oliver). So I've keeping pretty busy and because of that I've lost contact with a lot of good friends over the years which I truly regret. And since this seems to be an open forum...I just want to say that I do like children, I just don't plan on having any right now. I'm trying to work on the husband part first. So, contrary to "popular" belief, my insecurities have nothing to do with children or anyone else to say the least. My life is going well, and I am happy and having fun and that is something that I wish for each and every one of you. I guess Robert Frost says it best for me, "Two roads diverged in a wood and I, I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference." Eat your heart out, Miss Nichols;)
Friends: My closest friends in high school were Monica Maguire, Lisa Zavala, Ernestine Holmes, and Sonya Johnson. I got love for them all for different reasons; M.M. for her spunk and spontaneity, L.Z. for her quiet strength and stubborness, E.H. for her creative individuality, and Sonya J! because she is one of the realest females I know!!You my girl fo' life!
Hobbies: I play the piano, rollerblade, and I still love to eat. I've taken up photography recently, too.
Kids: None yet...Babysitting is quite an effective birth control.
Grade_school: Which one? Woodlake, Babcock, and Thomas Edison.
Grade_school_friends: Lauretta Casimir and Douglas White.
Junior_high: Jonas Salk.
Junior_high_friends: All the Dickies minus a few...we started out as Jonas Salk thuglets, and got GhettoFabulous at Encina. Monica, Lisa, Ernestine, LaToya, Reiko, Sonya, Tiwana and Tikeysa(Congrats on your new baby!), Catrina. If I missed any body, please excuse me, my mind is fading in my old age.
Memorable_teachers: Mr. Luchini because of SQ3R(used it in college!) and because he used to kick me and Ernestine out the class cuz' we had "sailor mouths";) Mrs. Nichols cause she made class interesting with all her drama. And the Asian Spanish teacher(cant remember how to spell his name) because he threw the best fiestas.
Favorite_memory: I have 3...1) Last day of Sophomore year, we piled like 7 or 8 deep in Somgnot's car and rolled up to Folsom lake. 2) When the whole crowd in the bleachers was yellin' "BULLSHIT, BULLSHIT!!" to the refs on a bad call on Lonnie Powell. 3) Ernestine and her chicken routine on the bus trips for B-ball.
Story: ...Hey Dickies, ya'll remember when we marched down the street to Hotshots(the pool hall) singing and carrying on, and Shammond was dancin on the corner? We called ourselves "eight ball":) Those were some good times, times I will never forget.

Occupation: Student at Chico State
Bio: Well, since grad I have basically been going to school. I was a double major/double minor student ( which is why I am still in school) but I dropped my history major and now I am a Religous Studies Major with a double minor in Native American Studies and Womens Studies. I have been on the honor roll for over a year now. I had some crazy times here at THE PARTY SCHOOL but they didnt last long,(cant keep up the grades if you cant keep down the booze) drinking and partying are way over rated and basiclly come down to the fact that a bunch of broke dirty scum bags are trying to get laid. Emphasis on TRYING!!! I met my Fiance while I was here at Chico state, we have been together for 3yrs now and will some day get married (when it wont mess up my financial aid...thank the Creator for FINANCIAL AID!!!)
Trivia: I am 500 times as weird as I was in Highschool!!! I am a vegetarian, I stoppped shaving...you ask why? Because one day I asked myself the same question...Why do women shave? Well I couldnt think of any good reason except that someone could make money off me ( and my insecurites) so I stopped. I guess you could say I take pride in not obsseing about my apperance that much. But than again I never really did in Highschool either. ( I've got more important ways to spend my energy)
Friends: I'm sure it is no surprise that Emily Bennett and I am still friends. I have kept in touch with Danielle
Davis-Stueben ...even though she never sends me a picture of Alexis!! And like Maryanne said I saw her at Emily's wedding. She has not changed a bit..she is still the bright and bubbly sweet girl she was in highschool. So basically I still talk to the same people I did in High school. I also called Leria and apoligized to her for being a stupid immature bitch in High school ...so let me extend my apologies to all those I offended.. I was young and stupid...(ok I still am young and I still make mistakes but I'm learning and working on it.)
Hobbies: I practice Yoga as a life style and also as a physical and meditation practice twice a day. I also have been involved in many student organizations which focus on achieving a healthier lifestyle for the world and all its inhabitants.. I guess if your into labels you could call me a Buddist/Hindu Hairy/Feminist/Hippie/Punk.
