Syracuse, NY- Harry Lee Fowler, 72, formerly of Lisbon, passed away peacefully at 1:40pm Sunday, March 5, 2023 at Crouse Hospital following a recent illness.
Harry was born November 1, 1950 in Salem, Ohio, a son of the late George Washington and Dorothy Marie (Stock) Fowler, and had lived in Syracuse since 2006, moving from San Diego, California.
A 1969 graduate of Lisbon David Anderson High School and the Ohio State University, Harry received his MBA from Our Lady of the Lake University of San Antonio, Texas. He worked as an X-ray and MRI technician and instructor at Kaiser Permanente San Diego Medical Center, where he retired in 2006.
Harry was a member of the Lisbon First Christian Church and had proudly served our country as a member of the U.S. Airforce during the Vietnam War, where he was assigned to duty in England. During this time, he developed a love of travel as he cycled all over Europe including London, Paris, and Rome.
