Lee Fowler

September 24, 1954 ~ December 26, 2017 (age 63)

Lee Fowler, 63, passed away Tuesday, December 26, 2017 at his home here in Guymon.

Lee Richard Fowler was born in Guymon on September 24, 1954, to Geraldine (jerry) and Paul Fowler.   He attended Guymon Public Schools and Oklahoma State University.  In 1978, he returned home and opened Texas County Tag Agency.  Lee was united in marriage to Betty Jane Popp on September 4, 1996, in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. A life-long resident of Guymon, Lee was a friend to Guymon and all members of the community.  As an advocate for Guymon Schools youth programs, he volunteered in all capacities for the Guymon Gators Swim Club and was instrumental in making swimming a Guymon High School varsity sport.  He did this not just for his swimming daughter, Sarah, but for all who wanted to compete and enjoy swimming. He was currently serving as the Clerk of the Guymon School Board and was a voice for improvement and change, as he helped pass the much needed, recent school bond that will help all children in Guymon Schools. 

Lee was a lifelong member of the First Presbyterian Church.  He lived out his faith by adoring his family, loving his neighbors, and making his community a better place.  He was kind, gentle, and generous.  He had a quick wit and dry sense of humor; plus that man could cook!    

He is survived by his wife, Betty Fowler and daughter, Sarah Elizabeth Fowler; his nieces, Heidi Pracht Rogers; Meganne Pracht Townsend and husband, Stan; nephew, Thad Pracht and wife, Dawn; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Don Popp and wife, Cindy; Ruth Miller and husband, Donnie; Mark Popp and wife, Tonya; Mark Phelan; and all their families.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Jerry and Paul; mother and father-in-law, Viola and Theodor Popp; sister and brother-in-law, Becky and Dr. Robert Pracht, and sister-in-law, Gladys Phelan.    

Memorial services will be Friday, December 29th, 2:00 PM, at the First Presbyterian Church, 310 NW 7th Street, with Pastor Linda Sherry, officiating.  Interment will be at Elmhurst Cemetery.

The family will receive friends for viewing and visitation on Thursday, December 28th, from 5:00-7:00 PM at the Henson-Novak Funeral Home.

In lieu of floral gifts, the family has suggested that memorials be given to the Discovery Preschool at First Presbyterian Church or the Guymon Prairie School Reading Program.   Memorials may be mailed to Henson-Novak Funeral Directors, P.O.
