Joseph Richard Fowler
07/29/1933 - 09/14/2019
I was born in 1933 to Joseph and Lorraine Fowler. I served on the U.S.S. Sicily during the Korean War. I graduated from the University of Utah and worked for the State of Utah in social services. I spent much of my life in the sports of Judo, weightlifting and chess.
Carol Easthope and I were married in 1958 and we have three children who have made us very proud of their accomplishments and character. I am survived by Carol; my children, Mike (Shauna), Craig (Leidy) and Kim (Marcus), my grandchildren, Amber (Marquis) and Leif; Katie (Steve), Stockton, Aniston, Beckham, Lisa (Tyler), Makenna, Kolby and Joe; Chaseton and Brennon; brother-in-law Ken (Sandy) Easthope; nephews Mark, David and Joe; nieces, Kirsten, Jennifer, Karen and Debra.

“To every sailor comes time to drop anchor Haul in the sails, and make the lines fast. You deep water dreamer, your journey is over, You’re safe in the harbor at last..
