Claremont, N.H. — Eugene Lawrence Fowler Sr., 75, passed away at home on Friday, Oct. 5, 2018, from complications due to Parkinson’s Disease.

He was born in Claremont on March 8, 1943, the son of Theodore and Mildred (Martin) Fowler.

Gene was graduate of Stevens High School. He was co-captain of the football team and received the MVP Award and still holds one title.

He was a charter member and first President of Sullivan County Humane Society.

He had a great love for all animals and had many of his own over the years.

In younger years he raced for Larry Stickney at Claremont Speedway and was top point car two years in a row in his class. Never underestimate Gene with a challenge. He also refereed school football games.

Many thanks to his doctors at Dartmouth for their care of Gene over the years, especially Dr. Brackett and Dr. Greenberg.

Many thanks to our friends and neighbors for their help during Gene’s decline.
