Owen was born in Broadview, Saskatchewan on August 1, 1886. He was working as a locomotive fireman at the time of his enlistment in April of 1916. In July of 1916, Owen suffered from slight gunshot wounds to his thigh. His medical notes also state that his vision was defective; this may have been due to gassing. In 1921, Owen filed on the western half of 10-79-5-W6. He died on June 18, 1939.
