John Francis Fowler III passed away June 1, 2010. John was born in New York City, N.Y., but spent his childhood in Scarsdale, N.Y. He lived the last 41 years in the Atlanta area.
John received his undergraduate degree from Yale University and his MBA from Harvard. After Yale, John served in the Korean War as a lieutenant aboard the U.S.S. St. Paul. Upon graduating from Harvard, he worked for Dow Chemical Company for more than 10 years before working for other smaller chemical companies including Flexible Products in Marietta. An entrepreneur at heart, in 1972 John founded Performance Chemicals. Upon retirement, he volunteered for many organizations including SCORE, and Meals on Wheels.
One of John's passions was his help and leadership with the Atlanta Sail and Power Squadron, having risen to the title of commander in 2000. He had a love of the outdoors, which included sailing and gardening. His love of the outdoors grew from spending his summers in Maine during his youth. He continued that tradition with his own family even after they moved to Atlanta. John's other hobbies included a love of reading and listening to opera.
He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Martha Fowler; his sons, Bill and Jeff Fowler; and three grandchildren.
