He is survived by his daughter, Elizabeth (Michiel Fassaert), and his son, Christopher (Cristina), along with their mother, Anne Fowler; two grandchildren, Tristan and Kira; his wife, Dr. Jan Graham; two step-sons, Kenneth and Stephen, and step-grandson, Perry. The family would like to thank the staff of Parkview Health and Rehabilitation, UNC Health Geriatrics, and Liberty Hospice for the care Dr. Fowler received over the last two years.

He was my family doctor in Toronto, and delivered my daughter, who is now almost 52 and a mother herself. That was back when family doctors delivered babies. He was so kind and caring, and made the birth a wonderful experience. We later moved from Toronto, but I have never forgotten him. So sad to read of his passing. My condolences to the family.
