The piping and drumming world, and especially those in the Central Scotland area, were saddened by the death of Richard Owen on September 13, 2009, after an illness.
Originally from Clydebank, Scotland, Richard Owen was a member of the College of Piping and Dumbartonshire Scout pipe band in the 1950s and ’60s. In the 1970s he moved to the Stirlingshire area and became Pipe-Major of the Alloa Bowmar Pipe Band, a non-competing band with which he committed the rest of his piping career.
 
Owen was a prolific and highly respected teacher in the Clackmannan area, and will be missed by his many pupils and friends, in addition to his family.
 
On behalf of the piping and drumming world, we extend our sympathies to Richard Owen’s friends and family at this sad time.
