Hugh Fowler was born in Salt Lake City on April 8, 1928 to Tracy and Gladys Fowler. He had one older brother Keith, who preceded him in death. He married Nancy Skeen on January 1, 1946. They had six children.
Hugh was a great man, loved by everyone who knew him. He attended Idaho State University and earned a degree in Pharmacy. He worked as a pharmacist for 10 years at Walgreens Drug Stores. He then purchased Peerless Beauty and Barber Supply with his father in 1956. After his father’s passing, he and his children proudly owned and operated the business for over 60 years. He was proud to have built a company that was highly respected in the beauty industry.
His life can be summarized in the following comments of his oldest granddaughter, Cheri. My grandpa was an amazing man, husband, father and grandpa. He and my grandma were the epitome of class, love, and style- Hollywood Style. Even when he wore golf shirts and shorts, he made that look cool.
He was always golfing, watching golf, anything sports related with Chicago, doing puzzles, and sitting with his wife watching TV. He loved his family, and we have a huge family! Always took an interest in what his grandchildren, and great grandchildren were doing, and always made us feel special. He had a commanding presence, a deep voice, an infectious laugh, and very funny. I remember him with a smile on his face, always. My grandpa was as sweet and generous as they come, such a wonderful man. And bonus, my dad is just like him!
Grandpa, I love you very much, and feel so damn lucky to be a Fowler. Every moment spent with you and grandma was a joy. We all know you and grandma are having a drink and watching the sunset. You had a great life, and left a legacy that will forever be honored and cherish. You are missed.
Hugh is survived by his children- Scott Fowler (Pearl), Susan Fowler Goodsell, Robin Clyde (Danny), Tracy Fowler (Leilani), Barry Fowler (Mary Catherine), along with 23 grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his wife, Nancy and his son Greg and daughter in law, Toi Lee.
