James Wade Bourne Fowler has ended his journey on earth to enter his eternal home. Wade passed away at 12:15 pm on July 5th 2019 after a lengthy battle of several health issues.

Wade was born September 23, 1938 in Shreveport, Louisiana to F.E. and Catherine Bourne Fowler. He graduated from Texas High School in 1957. Wade attended Texarkana Junior College immediately following High School graduation where he was an exceptional athlete and member of the football team. He participated on the 1957 Junior College National Championship TEAM and achieved the honor of becoming First All American.

He met his bride, Carolyn, while attending Texas High. They married following Carolyn's graduation and celebrated 60 years of marriage. They have two sons, Wade Fowler, Jr. and Scott P. Fowler.

Wade is survived by his devoted wife, Carolyn along with his two sons, Wade Jr. and wife Kim and Scott.

Wade and I were friends for decades following our years at Texarkana Junior College. He and Carolyn attended my 50th wedding anniversary celebration in 2009 and we, thankfully, reconnected again this year.
