Roger Dale Fowler 1957-2006

Roger Dale Fowler, son of D.J. Fowler and Anna Fowler, was born November 19, 1957 in Livorgro, Italy.

Roger attended Waynesville Schools from 1972 until 1976 when he graduated from Waynesville High School. Later in his adult life, Roger returned to school and received an Associate Degree from Park College in Medical Records Management and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Care Management from Park College.

Being a mechanic, Roger loved race cars and in his young adult years he built and adored a 1970 Mach I Mustang that he used to race against other race friends on nearby South 17 every Saturday night. In his later years, Roger gave up building race cars and watched the races on TV with #20 Tony Stewart being his favorite NASCAR driver. Roger traveled to Indianapolis, Indiana a couple of years ago to watch the Indy 500 with a few of his close friends.

Roger enjoyed music and as a result began a new career spinning records in the local lounges. Some of his favorites were Saliva, Stain, Garth Brooks and George Strait. Many did not know this about Roger, but he also loved to write poetry and was very good at it.

Roger was a dedicated father to his daughter Shanna. She is the apple of his eye. Roger was very proud of Shanna and all she has accomplished in her lifetime. He loved her very much.

Roger was preceded in death by his father, D.J. Fowler, his mother Anna Fowler and a nephew Jeremy Fowler.
