December 29, 1955 - April 28, 2021
Mitchell Lee “Mitch” Fowler, Jr., 65, died April 28, 2021, in his home after a brief illness in the care of Sanctuary Home Hospice, to whom the family extends their sincere gratitude. He was born on December 29, 1955, in Tupelo, MS, to Ladosky Farris Fowler and Mitchell Lee Fowler, Sr., of the Bissell community. Mitch was a member of the Tupelo High School class of 1974, where he enjoyed varsity chorus and marching band. In his younger years, he was active in Tupelo Community Theater as well as Tupelo High School Band-Parent musicals. He was employed as a route manager by Waste Management of North Mississippi where he worked and made friends for 24 years. Mitch was a faithful member of Chesterville Calvary Baptist Church where he was involved in church activities with a special love of singing. He was also the tenor member of The Trailsmen Quartet for the past three years. Always an avid sportsman, Mitch recently stated “The catfish and deer of north Mississippi can rest easy, now.” Hobbies Mitch enjoyed included singing, reading, watching Westerns, hunting, fishing, and spending time with family and friends. He enjoyed his time coaching in various Tupelo Park & Recreation leagues and baseball in the Chesterville community. He spent time as a scoutmaster for Tupelo Troop/Pack 8. He also loved his time spent worshipping with his church family. A natural conversationalist with a keen sense of humor, Mitch never met a stranger and was beloved by all who knew him. A memorial celebration of Mitch’s life and his departure to be home with the Lord will be held at Chesterville Calvary Baptist Church, 106 Doe Run, Belden, MS, on Saturday, May 1, at 2pm, with Brother Terry Faulkner officiating.
