Gregory (Greg) Eugene Stowers died peacefully in his home while surrounded by his family on October 18, 2013, after his whole-hearted fight with glioblastoma. Being born and raised in Austin, attending Brentwood Elementary, Lamar Jr. High, McCallum High School, Austin Community College, and retiring in 2012 as a Sergeant with the Austin Police Department were many of his proud milestones as a life-long Austinite. Family and Friends will remember him as a provider, protector, dear friend, and most-loving husband and father.
He was proud to have experienced the birth of his three sons and provide guidance as they continued to grow and gain independence. He served the City of Austin for 20 outstanding service years and supported organizations throughout the community. He was a great challenge for many in his passion for basketball and enjoyed time on the water, boating and skiing.
He is survived by his best friend, true love and wife, Yvette Marie (Wohlers) Stowers, three sons, Matthew, Andrew, Nathan, and three step-daughters, Emalie, Juliana, and Gabriela.
A memorial service will be held at 1:00 pm, Saturday, October 26, 2013 in the Memorial Chapel at Cook-Walden/Capital Parks Funeral Home in Pflugerville, Texas.
An urn placement with police honors will follow the memorial service in the Hill Country Garden of Cook-Walden/Capital Parks.
