Chief Bill Fowler and I got promoted the same time, He made Chief and II made SMSgt the same promotion cycle on Andersen AFB, Guam. The Chiefs group reassigned him back to the States and I became the Food Services Superintendent.
Bill and Irene had two daughters and we also had two daughters and we worked well together in resolving many issues that were being experienced during our initial time at Andersen.
A major exercise Giant Thrust B-52 was a huge event having two wings of B-52's and 850 additional maintenance folks visit us. What an event.
Bill was an honorable man and will be missed. His years back at Keesler AFB, MS was a fond time for him and his family. May God give Bill rest and comfort in the Lords house. We send our most sincere condolences to Irene and their children. Rest now Bill and know the peace and joy of our loving Lord my friend!
