Veteran

Frederick W. “Fred” Fowler

Frederick W. “Fred” Fowler, of South Weymouth, passed away at home peacefully with his family by his side on June 29, 2019, at the age of 95.

Fred grew up in North Weymouth and served in the Army during WWII and fought at the historic “Battle of the Bulge”.  He was a Teamster for Local 25 until his retirement.  Fred could solve any problem big or small and was always willing to lend a hand and his tools.  An avid traveler, Fred enjoyed all the trips he took with his family, but most of all he loved camping.  His time spent with his family was his most cherished; he never missed an event, especially with his grandchildren.

Beloved husband of 58 years to the late Eleanor S. (Snow) Fowler.  Loving father of Frederick W. Fowler III and his wife Mary of Freehold, NJ, and Jeanine F. Callahan of Weymouth.  Best Papa ever to Carissa and her husband Chris Cyriax, Marc Fowler, Catherine and Jack Callahan.  His sister, Helen Reilly, pre-deceased him.  Also survived by extended family members, including his dear sisters-in-law and brother-in-law, nieces and nephews and his wonderful neighbors, Bob, Nancy, Marylou and Norma who became family.
