We must regretfully announce the death of David William Fowler. He passed on Tuesday, May
28th 2019. Born to Bill and Karen Fowler in Kansas City, then raised in Colorado where he
loved the ever-present outdoors and mountain views. Here he met his family and settled in
Centennial. David is survived by his loving wife Sheila, his son and daughter-in-law Thomas and
Emma, and his beloved grandson Oliver. He will be missed by his parents Bill and Jan Fowler,
sister Cheryl, brother and sister-in-law Chris and Kay, and sister and brother-in-law Darcy and
Jeremy. His Nieces and nephews Calvin, Becky,  Katie, Tyler, and Zoey. He has touched
the lives of so many extended family and friends and will be greatly missed.
David proudly graduated from Colorado College in 1994 with a Bachelors Degree and a
distinction in Economics. He then went on to work as a database architect focusing on
telecommunications up and down the front range. Most recently he lent his talent to Centurylink.
For many years, David was involved with Akita rescue, frequently fostering several dogs at a
time. David recently experienced becoming a grandfather and quickly found that it was one of
his favorite things in the world. He will be dearly missed by all, particularly his dog Duffy.

  4. I have had the pleasure of knowing this man that mom loved. Then he became my own father. He evolved to be a grandfather to my son. In the time I grew up with him, I have learned so many things from him. The art of being straight forward. The main thing I learned was how to be there for the ones you care about. I could go on about the things he taught me. However I’ll keep it to myself. He was a great man! He was a great father. However an even better grandfather for my son! I will miss him dearly. My condolences to his family and his friends that became family!

David I promise your Oliver will always know how much you love him and we will be sure to expose him to the wonder that is Dr. Seuss.

  9. Oh David. It has been a long time since we have spoke – but I will never forget you. Thank you for our time and being slightly grumpy but always lovely. You always had a guarded heart, but still led by your heart. May you rest in peace. You have had a beautiful impact on my life. You will be greatly missed.

  12. It had been my pleasure to have worked with Dave for many years prior to my retirement from Century Link.

    Dave was a crucial member of our team. He was honest, dedicated, hardworking, generous, and good at his job. He was admired and respected by our entire team.

    Dave often exhibited a gruff exterior that he sometimes used to conceal his truly warm-hearted and tender soul.

    Although I never met any of Dave’s family, I express my admiration for Dave, and express my sorrow to you for his passing.

  13. David became integral to our family. The love he and Sheila shared with us brightened our lives. His visits to The Old Homestead ranged from cheerful company to fixing chairs to stimulating conversation. My father valued social grace and David had it.
