Fowler, Richard G., (Dick)
Fowler, Richard G., (Dick) formerly of Regina and Lemberg, ended his long journey through life May 31, 2012 in Broadview Union Hospital with his son William at his side. Born in Regina on January 5, 1914 to Eliza and Robert Fowler he was predeceased by his parents, his wonderful wife, Jeanne and grandson, Nicholas (in infancy). He is survived by his brother Peter (Lorraine), Didsbury, Alberta; sons Robert, Kelowna, BC; Richard, Balcarres, SK; William (Marianne) Lemberg, SK; and David (Sigrid) Fort St. John, BC. Dick is also survived by 5 grandchildren (Dawn Marie; James; Robert Jr. (Alicia); Sarah Jean (Fabian); and Alexander; 5 great- grandchildren Victoria; Sarah Elizabeth; Michael; Xochipilli and Citlalli; and great- great-grandchild Elijah, as well as a number of nieces and nephews.
He received his primary school education at Arm River School in Girvin - a typical one- room Saskatchewan school. After completing high school at Regina Central Collegiate and graduating from Reliance School of Commerce he was employed by Canada Permanent Mortgage Corporation from February 1933 to November 1939. Following discharge from the army on medical grounds in June 1943, he was hired by the Workers' Compensation Board as a junior clerk, and served in a number of increasingly senior positions before retiring as Board Chairman on January 1, 1977. Following retirement he and Jeanne spent 15 enjoyable winters in Florida and south Texas. In 1979 they moved to Lemberg, (a decision they never regretted) where Dick enjoyed gardening and observing nature, the company of family and friends, crib matches with Albert Allen and, in later years, the exchanges of wisdom and wit during coffee hour at Leanne's Café. Following Jeanne's death in 2004 he continued to live in their home until March of 2012. He recognised that in recent years this was only possible due to the devotion of family members and the fine staff of Home Care Nurses and Workers dedication to his well being, for which he was deeply grateful.
Dick was a long time member and Past Chief of the Sons of Scotland and a member of the Masonic Order and the Lemberg Friendship Club.
Dick's remains have been cremated. At his request there will be no church service at this time. Family and friends will gather for a celebration of Dick's life at a later date. Those who wish to make a donation in his memory can do so to the Balcarres Integrated Care Centre, Balcarres, Sk. S0G 0C0 or to a charity of their choice.
