OBC Life Member Passes Away
Roy Fowler 1916 - 2001
It is with great sadness that we report the death of Ottawa Bicycle Club member #.1, Roy Fowler. Roy was made a life member of the club in the early 1980's in recognition of his service to the Club. He first served on the Board in 1973 as Touring Director, and since had been Social Director, twice Newsletter Editor, three times Vice-President, and twice President. He was ably supported by wife Mary and daughter Sue both of whom also served in official capacities during the same period as Roy did. Roy died at his home in Ottawa yesterday. He was 84 years old.
Our deepest regrets are extended to members of Roy's family. Our thoughts are with them.
