From the National Fishing League: From the inception of the NPFL Skeeter Fowler was an advocate and resource for our organization. Skeeter lived his entire life for God, his family, and fishing. He was continually investing time and effort to grow the sport and spent time with his sons doing so. Skeeter was a fierce competitor and worked extremely hard on and off the water to be a positive influence to those around him. Whether teaching fishing, competing, or raising funds for someone’s cause, Skeeter gave all he could to support others in the sport he loved so much. Never forgetting to focus on family and tell folks how much he loved his family. He was an extremely proud Husband, father, and Grandfather! Please remember Amy, the Boys, the grandkids and his Mother, Father, and Brother through this difficult time. Skeeter Fowler left us too soon but has started his heavenly journey today where he will continue to watch over and protect us all.
