Born August 24, 1948 in Havre de Grace, Maryland, he was the son of the late James Nicholas Fowler and Mary Belle Hash Fowler.
George attended the local schools in Bel Air and graduated from Bel Air High School with the class of 1966. After graduating he attended Hartford Junior College for one year then transferred to the University of Maryland where he achieved a BS degree in Business Management and Advertising Design.

He was a member of the Cambridge Elks and American Legion Post #91.
On April 19, 2004, George married the former Karen Marine and they were just one month shy of celebrating their 16th Anniversary. George and Karen were soul mates and enjoyed spending every moment together. When he was not with his wife, George enjoyed hunting, fishing, especially surf fishing. He was also a certified diver.
George loved his family and when his grandsons would come to visit this would always put a huge smile on his face. He enjoyed attending their baseball games and was their biggest cheerleader!
He will be missed by all who knew him and his sense of humor which he had right up to his last day.
He is survived by his wife Karen, daughter Kristen Fowler of Columbia, MD, son Billy Abey(Angie) of Hurlock, MD; grandsons Trey, Landon and Lane Abey; 4 great grandchildren; sister-in-laws Terri Rosta and Bonnie Rogers (Hobart); several nieces, nephews and special friends.
