On October 3, 2021, Zachary Thomas Fowler was swooped up by the arms of an angel and brought home. His last day was spent with family until his very last breath, leaving our family circle broken. Zach had finally accomplished his dream of a bull moose in the Boulder Valley. With his kinder spirit, bravery, and love for his family, he turned the car so he would take the full impact, giving his family a chance to live on and carry his memory. Growing up, he was part of the Clancy Kids Forever. He spent his summers, playing baseball, fishing, collecting sheds and getting into mischief.
He had a passion for food and designated himself as the Barbecue King. After receiving his diesel degree at Wyo Tech in 2013, he went to work for Summit Utilities. Throughout his travels, he acquired many dear friends. Zachary home was the backwoods, hunting, fishing, and making memories with his four-legged child Taz. He spent countless hours with his brother William and many family and friends finding his trophy muley, fly fishing, and shed hunting. Every spring, he grew with excitement to join the Foster Ranch Branding Crew and bringing many stories home to tell. These events brought back memories of his childhood with his grandparents on the farm. When he was not in the mountains, he was with his sister Kat goofing around and sharing memories. There never was a dull moment at the York Bar, with a cold beer in his hand and his best friend Kody Kottas and others by his side.
Zach leaves behind many who loved and adored him. He is survived by many of these individuals including his beloved son Taz (his Doberman), Parents Keith and Melva Fowler, Grandparents Don and Mary Ragsdale, Grandma Shirley Rogers, Brothers Rudy (Danielle) Fowler and William (Candace) Fowler, Baby Sister Kathryn Fowler, and life time Best Friends Kody Kottas, Hunter Demers, and Derek Teague, along with numerous Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Nieces, Nephew, and Friends.
A memorial service celebrating Zach’s life will be held at 11 a.m. at JFK Park in East Helena. Private family burial will take place at a later date.
