FOWLER, Charles Percy ("BUD") -
It is with profound sadness that the family announces the passing of their dear Bud at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre on Friday, January 10, 2020 at the age of 94. Cherished and loving husband of Lila for 70 years. Devoted father of Lorne (Johanna), Suzanne (Stephen) Irwin, and Bruce (Deborah). Proud and adored Gramps to Jamie (Tanya), Charlie, and Carly (Amerigo). Step grandfather to Michael, Mackenzie, Morgan and Marshall (Flynn). Dear brother of Joan (the late Ron) Arthur and Barbara (the late Jim) MacKenzie. Bud will be fondly remembered by his sister-in-laws Helen (late Michael) Burns, Joan Miller and brother-in-law George (Theresa) Ste.Marie. Predeceased by his sister Eileen (the late Ed) Chapdelaine and sister-in-law Bernadette (the late Bob) Pryor. Bud will be sadly missed by his many cousins, nieces, nephews, family, friends and neighbours. Bud grew up in New Toronto, served as a wireless air gunner in the Canadian Air Force as a young man and went on to enjoy a 39 year career with Bell Canada. Bud Fowler was a gifted athlete who played for the Toronto Argonauts in the 1950’s and was a valuable member of two Grey Cup championship winning teams including the famous 1950 Mud Bowl. Bud was also a dedicated coach to many aspiring athletes in the Etobicoke hockey and football community. In November 2018 Bud had the honour to be inducted into the Etobicoke Sports Hall of Fame in the Legends Athlete category. The family would like to thank the staff at West Park Healthcare Centre and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre for their care and compassion. A Celebration of Life will be held for Bud at Lambton Golf & Country Club, 100 Scarlett Road, Toronto, on Saturday February 1st, 2020 between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.. As expressions of sympathy, donations to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Veterns K Wing would be appreciated. Online condolences at

I knew Buddy through the "Drummond Street Old Boys" hockey club. He had a great outgoing personality and was a joy to be with. My favourite memory of Bud was a tournament hockey game where a guy gave him a hard shot to the body. This was not acceptable as it was well known that we were always the oldest team at any hockey tournament. Bud got so angry, he put his shoulder down (like he did in his football days) and took a good hard run at the guy. The guy was probably 25 years younger than Bud but the hit re-kindled something in Buddy we rarely saw, his competitive spirit. Rest in peace old friend.

It happened at 393 university ave, the Bell building, some time in the 60s. After working hard one weekend saturday , it was time to have a little rest or whatever. There were 5 or 6 of us or so. We were young and full of ourselves and sort of in good shape. We decided to have a contest to see who of us younger guys were able to do the most push-ups. I was the last of three who thought we could out perform the others . Two older guys including Bud who were counting the number of push-ups the three of us could do. I did 75 push-ups, 1 more than the other 2 guys could do. Of course I was the winner. BUT to our amazment, old man Bud said he wanted to try and see how far he could go. Down on the floor he started, puffing when he got to 65 or so. We thought
he was finished. Puffing a little harder, at 70. He was done . THEN, to our astonishment, with 1 hand behind his back 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78. Thats how I remember a real supper guy. And my long time super hero. I'll never forget my friend.

, were watching in astonishment how well we were doing.
