Obituary of Robert Wain Fowler
Robert Wain Fowler was born on August 24, 1937, on his Grand Dad Wentzel’s farm near Oxbow, SK. Robert passed away on Monday, June 20, 2022, at the Pasqua Hospital after a brief battle with cancer. He is lovingly remembered by his wife, Darlene, of nearly 58 years; daughters Susan (Jeff) Real, Carol (Dale) Schwindt, Shelley (Kevin) Reddekopp, and Shirley (Jason) Faye; and grandchildren Robyn Real, Matthew Reddekopp, and Lucas, Jordi and Eli Faye, who he loved with all his heart. Also left to mourn are his brothers Albert (Louise) LaRose, Gordon (Linda) LaRose, Eddie (Kathy) LaRose, and Frank LaRose; and sisters-in-law Marie Fowler, Louise Fowler and their families. Robert was predeceased by his parents Joseph Fowler and Eunice LaRose; sister Ivy Jestin; brothers Norman Fowler, Leroy Fowler and Tom LaRose; sisters-in-law Joan LaRose and Donna Toews; brothers-in-law Wilbert Jestin and Reg Jones; and nieces Colleen Hooker and Glenda Lacelle.
Robert was a hard-working, self-made man who farmed near Tyvan, SK for most of his life where he grew various crops, raised sheep, and later hogs. After retiring to Regina at age 70, he found a passion for wood working making everything from hot pads, shelves, and toy trains to hanging swings, glider benches, and Adirondack chairs. His grandchildren were his pride and joy, and he was often seen at their Christmas concerts, dance recitals, sports games, and school activities. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for his grandchildren. Robert had a genuine interest in people and sincerely wanted to know how everyone was, and what was happening in their lives. He was often the first one to arrive at a family event and the last one to leave. Robert will be remembered as a tower of strength, who had a kind word for everyone.
