In memory of
Jerry M. Fowler
Jerry Marston Fowler, 68, was born in Shreveport on April 26, 1940. The former commissioner of elections for Louisiana died on Monday, Jan. 26, 2009, in Baton Rouge. Survived by his three children, Susannah Fowler Craig and husband Stewart, of Baton Rouge, Margaret Fowler Abrahams and husband Alan, of Los Angeles, and John Marston Fowler and wife Jennifer, of Baton Rouge. He is also survived by four grandchildren Stewart Craig, Patrick Craig, Chelsea Pritchett and Baylea Pritchett; and by his dear friend, Kathy Adams. He was preceded in death by his wife, MariAnn Fowler; and brother, Dr. Douglas Fowler. After graduating from Northwestern State University where he played football, Jerry was drafted to the Oakland Raiders, and ultimately the Houston Oilers, for whom he was an offensive tackle. He returned to his beloved Louisiana where he owned and operated numerous businesses before being elected to public office. Jerry was someone who gave so much of himself and was so loved in return. He was a son, father, husband, grandfather, friend, athlete and public servant. To those that knew him and were touched by him, he was larger than life. He will be truly missed. Visitation at Rabenhorst Funeral Home, 825 Government St., on Wednesday evening was from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Memorial service at University United Methodist Church, 3350 Dalrymple Drive, on Thursday, Jan. 29, at 11 a.m. with visitation beginning at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the American Diabetes Association or St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
