INDIAN ISLAND – Larry D. Fowler, 40, died unexpectedly Friday, Jan. 12, 2007, at his residence. He was born April 1, 1966, in Boston, the son of Larry D. Fowler and Alice R. (Polchies) Day. Larry graduated from Old Town High School in 1985 and was a longtime employee of the Penobscot Indian Nation, and first and foremost loved spending time with his three kids. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him and will be remembered as a loving, independent, beautiful and proud Indian man who loved football, especially the Pittsburgh Steelers, and kayaking on the Penobscot River all the while keeping an eye out for eagle feathers along the shoreline. Larry also loved his friends and family, spending time outdoors hunting, fishing, skipping rocks and building fires, which could often been seen from across the pond when driving onto Indian Island, where he lived for the majority of his life. Larry’s death is a tremendous loss to the whole Penobscot Indian Nation community and his family hopes that people remember him with a smile on his face, being happy. He is survived and will be sadly missed by his mother, Alice Day of Woodstock, New Brunswick; father, Larry D. Fowler of Baldwin; daughter, Kaylee Rae Fowler Francis; sons, Travis N. Fowler Francis and Trevor A. Fowler Francis; brothers, Jeffrey Dennis, Kerry Shawn Dennis and James Fowler; sisters, Deidre Smith and Patricia Fowler; special girlfriend, Becky-Jo Cummings, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends, especially his best friend, Dave Hauger. He was predeceased by a brother, Kevin Dennis; sister, Fawn Bear; and a very special nephew, Nathan Fowler. Friends may call 1 p.m. Wednesday until the time of Mass of Christian burial, 10 a.m. Thursday at St. Ann’s Church, Indian Island, with Deacon Fred Harrigan, homilist and the Rev. Thomas Lequin, celebrant. Burial will be held 10 a.m. Friday at the Tribal Cemetery. Friends and family are invited to the parish hall for refreshments and continued fellowship after the service. Arrangements in the care of Birmingham Funeral Home, 438 Main St., Old Town.
