Roy D. Fowler

Somerville, TN

Roy Daniel Fowler, 73, of Somerville TN passed away peacefully at his home after a long, hard fought battle with cancer on March 24, 2017. He was born March 21, 1944 to John Lloyd and Frances Louise (Adams) Fowler in Columbus, MS. He grew up in Lamar County, AL and graduated from Sulligent High School in 1963, where he played football and baseball. After graduation, he married his high school sweetheart, Shirley Ann (Roberts) Fowler. They had three children and were married for 39 years until Ann's passing in September of 2002. Roy worked at Kellogg's for 32 years before retiring, and he was active with his church, and enjoyed coaching his children. He loved classic cars, and restored several over his lifetime. He was a soft-spoken advocate for friends, a loving, sacrificial father, and a devoted, faithful husband. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Frances, wife Ann and his three brothers Calvin, L.C., and Buddy. He is survived by his three children, Diana (Kevin), Greg, and Mark (Patti). He always kept his word, and he will be missed immensely.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, March 28 from 10am until noon followed by a memorial service at 12:00 at the Peebles West Funeral Chapel at Oakland.

Memorials in lieu of flowers may be made to St Jude Children's Hospital or American Lung Cancer Society
