William Jon Plowman, 40, of Miles City died Sunday, Jan. 5, 2014, at Holy Rosary Healthcare in Miles City.

Mr. Plowman was born on Feb. 15, 1973, in Fort Worth, Texas. At the age of two weeks, he became the son of Jon and Kathy McMillan Plowman. He attended grade school in Center, N.D. His freshman year he moved to Miles City where he graduated from Custer County District High School. While in high school, he was very involved in basketball and baseball in which his father had the privilege to coach him. 

Following high school, he attended Miles Community College and then enlisted in the United States Army. He was a registered contractor working in Montana and Wyoming in this profession.  His dream was to build affordable housing for his community.

He loved hunting, fishing, boating and other outdoor activities. Mr. Plowman was happiest when making his Aunt Teresa’s recipe for Frog Eye Salad and barbecuing with his own special sauce for his friends and family. 

He married the love of his life, Rosalinda, on Aug. 2, 2012, with his mother, Kathy, and father, Jon, standing up for them as witnesses. The joys of his life were his daughter, Anjeliq, and his son, Quannah. Quannah was his favorite hunting and golfing buddy. Anjeliq was his “princess.” He planned to take his family to Maine so they could share the special experiences he had there as a child. Mr. Plowman’s Grandma and Grandpa McMillan were very influential in his life, as was his “adopted” Grandpa Casey Stengel.
