Pleasant Grove, Utah

September 1, 1937 ~ June 28, 2010

George William Fowers, 72, of Pleasant Grove, Utah passed away Monday, June 28, 2010 surrounded by all his children. He was born September 1, 1937 in Driggs, Idaho to George and Wanona Fowers. He married Hilda L. Lopez on September 2, 1960 in the Idaho Falls Temple.

George grew up in Driggs Idaho and graduated from Idaho Falls High School. He attended Ricks College before serving an LDS (Spanish-American) Mission in Texas from 1957-1960. He attended Idaho State University and received his Bachelor's and Master's degree at Brigham Young University in Recreation Therapy. He loved his work and helped thousands of people improve their lives working the crisis center and with the mentally ill for over 40 years. Dad's gift in life was being creative and generous; he thought of others before himself and gave freely. Although he was retired, he continued to work part time at Valley Mental Health until the day he fell ill.

George worked for years as a scouting executive and loved the Boy Scout program, he served many teaching positions, high priest group leader and as a scout master in his ward for many years and probably has the most complete scouting history collection ever put together. He loved life and his family. He had a joke for every occasion and took every opportunity to create fun things with his grandchildren. He loved collecting…anything, restoring old wagons, playing the piano and drawing.

He is survived by his wife and his four children: Chris (Cal) Metcalf, Springville, Utah; Roxana Shaw, Provo, Utah; Katherine (Todd) Duvall, Santa Clara, Utah; Scott Fowers, Salt Lake City, Utah; 7 grandchildren: Amanda, Ryan (serving LDS Texas-Houston Mission), Samantha, McKell, Brooke, Shelby and Gavyn.

He was preceded in death by his parents, 2 sisters and a daughter.

Funeral Services will be held Saturday, July 3, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. in the Timpanogos Third Ward Chapel 435 E. 500 N. Pleasant Grove, Utah. Family and friends may attend a viewing on Friday, July 2, 2010 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Olpin Family Mortuary, 494 S. 300 E., Pleasant Grove, and at the church one hour prior to services.
