H. Philip Fowler

Posted 2018-05-29 by Paul Fowler

Harvard Philip Fowler (known as H. Philip Fowler or Phil to friends)
died peacefully of natural causes May 23, 2018 in Boston,
Massachusetts at the age of 83. Phil was born in Brooksville,
Maine, March 1, 1935 to Nina and Victor Fowler. Phil was told late
in life, did research and came to believe that Ralph Easton of Deer
Isle Maine was his father.

Phil is survived by: siblings-Carol Aberzik of Florida/Maine,
Clara Gray of Maine, Linda Searles of Maine, David Fowler of Maine,
ex wife-Jane Edwards of Maine, sons-Doug Fowler of New York, Paul
Fowler of Massachusetts, grandson Quinton Fowler of Maine and many
nieces and nephews.

He lived all of his young life on the coast of Maine with trips,
which he spoke of with fond memory, to his aunts occasionally in the
summer. He attended the University of Maine at Orono and graduated
with a Masters Degree in Education.

An educator his whole life Phil taught all over the United states:
starting in Aroostook County, Maine, Scarborough Maine, many years
as a well-known guidance counselor in Auburn Maine, Vermont, New
Hampshire and Arizona.

Phil decided in his forties that his health would benefit from the
dry climate of the southwest so he picked up his belongings, drove
west and started a new life. He loved being in Tucson and seeing the
Catalina Mountains from his home each day and made many valuable and
lasting friendships in the area.

Phil specifically asked for no services and that people celebrate
his memory and life rather than mourn his death.
