Obituary for George "Calvin" Fowler

Rev. George "Calvin" Fowler, 91, of Bourbon, passed away peacefully at his home, Saturday, September 9, 2017 surrounded by his family.

Reverend Fowler was born on September 6, 1926 to the late George and Ellen (Simmons) Fowler in Stanton, Missouri. He was the youngest of four children. On April 5, 1953, George was united in marriage to Norma Garrison at the Bourbon First Assembly of God. Reverend Fowler was an ordained minister with the Assembly of God denomination for sixty-one years. He was a Pastor for nearly fifty years, pastoring in several locations in Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois.

Reverend Fowler was a humble, caring, hard-working man of God. He ministered to and touched the lives of hundreds of people throughout his long life. He was known for his jolly personality, his wonderful sense of humor and infectious laugh. He taught through his example to give the needs of others priority over all else. His ministry was marked by self-sacrifice for the care of people.

Reverend Fowler was respected, loved and revered by his immediate and extended family, friends and many others whose lives he influenced. May he rest in peace in the mighty arms of our Savior Jesus.

Reverend Fowler is survived by his loving wife of sixty-four years, Norma; two children: Deborah Missey (and her husband, Keith) of Leasburg, MO and Michael Fowler (and his wife, Laurel) of Arvada, CO; seven grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; one great-great grandchild; and numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives.
