William Bowlyne Fisher II

San Antonio, TX

William Bowlyne "Bo" Fisher, II, of San Antonio, died at his home Saturday, April 29, 2017, after a ten-year battle with Parkinson's disease. He was a native of Henning, TN, and son of the late Alan Moorer Fisher and Larue Lankford Fisher. Bowlyne was a retired Episcopal priest and college professor.

He received his B.S. and M.Ed. From the University of Memphis, his M. Div. from the University of the South at Sewanee, and his Ph.D from the University of Mississippi. He retired from the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Dallas in 1999 as Interim Rector. H

He was preceded in death by three siblings, Betty Fisher Bagley, Jane Fisher Stephens, and John David Fisher. He is survived by his spouse, Raul A. Perez of San Antonio; his brother, Alan M. Fisher, Jr. of Oyrsa, TN; two sisters-in-law, Carolyn Fisher and Jean Fisher, and six nieces and nephews.

Bowlyne settled in San Antonio after retiring from the priesthood, and traveled widely during retirement. A lifelong academic, he read voraciously and never lost his love of learning. An amazing wit, he had an uncanny ability to evoke a smile, a snort, or more often, raucous laughter. The primary theme of Bowlyne's life, however, was love of his family and service to others. He will be missed by those who knew and loved him.

A graveside memorial service and interment of ashes will be conducted on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at St. Paul's Cemetery in Durhamville, TN at 11 a.m.
