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. & 4 p.m..

I also would like to add my condolences to his wife Lila and all his family.

I'll remember Bud by that big grin I always saw on his face, and his easy going friendly manner that immediately put me at ease whenever I had the pleasure of meeting him.
He was lifelong friends with my uncle Fricky MacDonald, and after Fricky passed away two years ago, Bud's name was the first one I found in his address book, a testament to their close friendship.
They both trained as wireless air gunners with the Canadian Air Force during WWII and remained best of friends ever since.
In the 1980's I photographed them both in an industrial building they had both worked together in shortly after the war and I added a photo of the two of them there in the photo section.

My condolences to all,
My thoughts go fondly to the sight of Bud doing his morning rounds on Lavington and Arkely to see if everyone was alright. Genuinely one of the coolest guys I have ever known.
