Obituary

William Harold Fowler
September 27, 1943~April 30, 2019

William Harold Fowler of Oak Harbor, WA, passed away peacefully and with his sense of humor, surrounded by his children on April 30, 2019, shortly after being diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.

Bill was born in Flushing, Queens, Long Island, NY, on September 27, 1943, the third son of Herschel Eugene and Marion Brooks Fowler. He graduated from Flushing High School in 1961. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree at New York University, and his master’s degree from the University of Colorado. He was also a Certified Public Accountant (passing all parts of the CPA exam the first time) and was certified in both California and Washington.

He valiantly served his country in the United States Air Force for 26 years, earning the rank of full Colonel in the United States Air Force and concluded his career as the Commander of all European Audit Agencies. Throughout the course of his career he earned multiple medals including: The Bronze Star for his service in the Vietnam War, The Air Force Commendation Medal, three Merit of Service Medals and The Legion of Merit medal.

On June 2, 1971, Bill married the love of his life, Mary Eileen Fowler, in Honolulu, HI. Eileen faithfully supported him throughout his military career living in California, Ohio, Alabama & Germany. Together, they traveled the world from Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Luxemburg, Hungary, to Czechoslovakia, England, Ireland, Scotland, Russia, Belgium, Holland, Greece & Canada. Upon his retirement, 26 years ago, they settled in Oak Harbor, WA.

Much of his time was dedicated in service to his church as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Throughout his life, Bill ministered to many and faithfully served in multiple bishoprics, on the High Council, as a High Priest Group Leader and as Bishop of the Oak Harbor 2nd Ward.

Bill is survived by his three children Lora Ann Fowler Harrell, William Scott Fowler, Brent Thomas Fowler, his nine grandchildren Jonathan, Christopher, Madison, Brittany, Hannah, Brody, Allie, Andrew, Jack and his brother, John Frederick Fowler. He is preceded in death by his parents Herschel Eugene and Marion Brooks Fowler, his brother Vernon Franklin Fowler, and his beautiful wife, Mary Eileen Fowler. We celebrate the glorious reunion they must be having in heaven right now!

Services will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Oak Harbor on Monday, May 6 at 11 am.
He will be laid to rest in Spanish Fork, Utah.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in his name to Hospice of the Northwest.
