Obituary of John Fowler

John Albert Fowler succumbed to the ravages of dementia, quietly at home on Thursday, October 12, 2017. John lived a good life with strong family ties, honest friendships, and an unbendable work ethic. He will be sorely missed by Nancy, Shawn, & Tracy, and her family Kevin, Tristan, Brody, Leighton & Riley, along with Susan and Ken, Jordana & Justin. The large extended family of Singbush’s, Maxwell’s and the Mulligan clan will have great stories of wonderful times.  Friends gathered over a lifetime in Mississauga, Waterloo, Sudbury, Georgetown, Port Bruce, Toronto, Vydon Acres, Ottawa and Arnprior can attest to John’s strength of character.  John was involved in many innovative banking changes over his thirty-seven years in the financial industry with CIBC. Colleagues span North America and Europe. This disease was a crushing blow, but the support of family, friends and generous neighbours along with the professional care providers helped John and his family immensely. The Dementia Society of Ottawa & Renfrew County, particularly Milton & Caitlin were gentle pillars of knowledge and strength. Dr. Andrew Frank with his staff; Dr. Michael Fishman, caring to the end; the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital staff; the LIHN (CCAC); St. Elizabeth Home Health Care and Bayshore Healthcare were invaluable during this very difficult journey. Our genuine thanks to everyone. John will be interred in the historic Beaverton Stone Church Cemetery in a private service. In the care of the Pilon Family Funeral Home and Chapel, 50 John Street North, Arnprior.
