Dennis was born on August 20, 1958 to the late Dewey Elvin “Cuz” and Clara Mae
“Missy” Fowler. He was raised in Pace, FL and resided there most of his life before
moving to Baker eleven years ago.
Although he was of short stature, Dennis had the biggest heart in the world. He was
kind, soft spoken, tender hearted, and overﬂowing with love. He never met a stranger
and he spread the love of Jesus to everyone he met. Dennis was a family man. He
loved his wife, his daughters, and his grandchildren more than anything in this world.
He was the handyman of all handymen. If something was broken, he could and would
ﬁx it. He owned his own paint and body shop for many years but recently worked as a
foreman at Carpenters Campers in Pensacola. Nothing was too hard for Dennis.
He faced hard times throughout his life but his faith in Jesus was unwavering and
steadfast. He was a true example of a strong man of God. Dennis was raised in Pace
Assembly of God Church where he was a member and served on their media team for
many years. Once he moved to Baker, he became a member of Milligan Assembly of
God Church where he has served in ministry for over ten years.
Dennis is preceded in death by his parents, Elvin and Clara Mae Fowler; his ﬁrst wife, Carmen Fowler; his son in law, Joe Nelson.
He is survived by his loving wife, Sheila Fowler; two daughters, Heidi Nelson and

Dear Sweet Sheila & Family,
Please accept our deepest condolences & sympathy & love to you all during the loss of Bro. Dennis. God is truly “Gathering In” His Saints l ( ( like the hymn we sang). Yes, He is gathering in His Redeemed in these Biblical times we are living in. Saints we know locally and all over the country are falling out, hearts are failing, new diseases are being unleashed like never before. Praise God for yours and Dennis’s Testimony and the beautiful love you shared. He always looked at you with a glow of true love. We were st Milligan when ya’ll married. Both of. You always looked so happy. We are praying for you as you go on with your walk for Christ until he joins you together again. If we can ever help you in any way, please let us know. We love you & are praying for you.
Love. Sister Dianne Bro. Harry Tomlin
