Bob is survived by his wife, Judy; children: David (Jenn) Fowler of Jeffers, Tim (Evie) Fowler of Park Rapids; grandchildren: Johanna, Bradley, Blake, Lexi, Jessica, and Issac; great-grandchildren: Jersey, Mauer, Journey, and Lauren; and siblings: Jim (Barb) Fowler of Westbrook, and Jane (Willie) Prahm of Shakopee.  He was preceded in death by his parents.

    Dear Judy and family,
    My heartfelt sympathy in your loss. Have many fond memories of Bob from our school days. Had some not so slow rides on the roads around Westbrook and some thought it was great fun to skid around on the ice covered lakes in the winter. Will remember his smile which was almost a grin.

    Thoughts and prayers for you.

    God bless the memory of Bob, a good man.
