Memorial
Kevin Britt Fowler, 58, of Conway, Arkansas, died March 3, 2016, surrounded by his family at Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee, of complications from a spinal cord injury sustained last May.

Kevin was born October 1, 1957, in Conway, Arkansas, the youngest of three sons of the late Charles Winfred and Elsie Truman (Ferguson) Fowler. His early years were spent in New Home between Guy and Quitman, Arkansas.

Kevin attended elementary through high school in Conway, graduating from Conway High School in 1975. At 16, Kevin began working part-time for Ward Body Works (Amtran), now known as Navistar International Corporation (IC). Upon graduation, Kevin went full-time, serving the better part of a 33-year career as electrical division supervisor. Concurrently, Kevin attended the University of Central Arkansas with an emphasis on music and business courses.

Kevin had an abiding interest in music which began in early childhood due to family role models.

As a youth, Kevin mastered the guitar and keyboard and honed his skills by practicing music with friends.

As an adult, Kevin played country, blues, classic rock, and contemporary rock and was a member of several local bands, including Kornerstone, Kountry Kool Band, Wolf Bayou Band, Left Of Center, and Mason-Sutter Band. Kevin was also a core member of the house band for the weekly blues jam held Sundays at O’Henry’s Restaurant (now Taylor’s Made Café).

Kevin, an unpretentious man with an authentic, folksy drawl and unrushed manner, was tall in stature and long in benevolence.

His innate qualities of consistency, levelheadedness and professionalism made him a devoted husband, father, brother, staff-member, supervisor and friend.

Kevin’s absence leaves a permanent void in the hearts of his family and friends and in the tenor of the local music community.

Kevin is survived by his wife, Sundae Lee (Bass) Fowler of Conway; son, Jason Drew Fowler of Conway; stepson, Julius Joseph Greenwood of Conway; brothers Charles Frederick “Fred” (Annadell) Fowler of Little Rock and James “Jim” Randle (Mary Anna) Fowler of Brownsville, Texas; three stepbrothers, Eddie Wimberly and Keith Wimberly (Joyce), both of Conway, and Gary Wimberly (Ginger) of Mabelvale; stepsister Sherry Lackey of Conway; paternal aunt Barbara Jean Gentry of Mabelvale; uncle Harry Fowler of Conway; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins; and countless friends.

A memorial celebration of Kevin’s life will be held Sunday, April 3, 2016, 4:00 p.m., at Taylor’s Made Café, 283 Highway 365, Conway, Arkansas 72032, where Kevin often played. Afterward, stay for the 6:00 p.m. Sunday Blues Jam dedicated to Kevin by his friends.

Flowers may be sent to Taylor’s Made or 2112 Arkansas Avenue, Conway, Arkansas 72034 and will be displayed at the memorial.

In lieu of flowers, buy a child a musical instrument or lessons and support live local music.

“There is going to be a resurrection......” (Acts 24:15) The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. May Jehovah the God of all comfort comfort the Fowler family.You are in my prayers.

Sundae, you know I truly know how you feel. My heart goes out to you and I do hope you'll call me if you ever want to talk. Sometimes it's good just to talk about them. Love you and praying for you, Janet

Aunt Sundae, I'm glad that you and Kevin found each other and were able to share some happy years before this last terrible one. I'm deeply sorry for your loss and for the loss to Kevin's entire family. The "Denote" tab was touching, and I truly will buy a musical instrument for a child! Love, Cindy
