Horace Fowler

January 10, 1921 — December 17, 2016

Services for "Papa Horace" Fowler, 95, of Troy, will be at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen, with Pastor Roger West and Manette Fowler officiating.
Mr. Fowler died December 17, 2016, in Temple.
He was born January 10, 1921, in Hayworth, Oklahoma to the late Albert and Maggie Fowler. In 1926, in covered wagons, he accompanied his parents to Texas.
He entered the U.S. Army on February 25, 1942, as a Light Machine Gunner. Participating in Four Major campaigns in the Pacific area, he maintained and fired Light Machine Guns and Automatic Rifles in combat in the South Pacific Theater.
He also was an Ammunition Bearer and Messenger for a Machine Gun Company.
After honorably serving his country, he left the military in 1945 and began a new chapter of his life.
He married Zelda Waltz in 1950 in Uvalde, Texas.
He later began working for Civil Service as a Carpenter on Fort Hood until his retirement.
He was lovingly known as the "Candy Man" he would dress up and hand out candy and entertain children at parties and other events.
An avid fan of puzzles, Mr. Fowler was known to assemble puzzles and then mount them in frames to give to his friends and families. A kind generous man, who loved to raise Parakeets and would do anything for anyone.
Horace will sorely be missed, by all.
