Sheriff Larry Fowler – 2005-2021


Sheriff Larry Fowler 2005-2021

Sheriff Larry Fowler was born June 5, 1938, to Mary Naomi Evans, in Weatherford, TX. He married Gail Williams-Fowler on June 23, 1990. He passed from this life and entered into the presence of our Lord at the age of 82 on February 27, 2021, surrounded by his family and loving wife, Gail Fowler. Larry proudly served in the United States Navy working on jet aircraft aboard the aircraft carrier, the USS Intrepid for four years and received an honorable discharge.
In 1963, Larry began a life-long career in law enforcement. His moral standards and commitment to excellence quickly became the path of every law enforcement officer who served under him. He served at Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office, Weatherford Police Department, the United States Marshals Service, the Parker County District Attorney’s Office and was elected Parker County Sheriff in 2004, where he served until his death.
Larry truly possessed a servant’s heart by dedicating his energy to numerous local charities and organizations, receiving several awards and recognitions for his service. He believed the strength of our community lies within the heart of its volunteers, and he practiced what he preached. He made certain his children and his employees followed suit, paving the way by example. His word was his oath, which reflected his ethic – tough yet compassionate. He directed others to the path less-traveled through his training. The results were always rewarding in knowing the correct path was taken, never jeopardizing integrity. He gave credit where it was due, and his compliments were always sincere and memorable.
To those who served under him, he leaves his legacy and traditions.
“… Well done thou good and faithful servant … enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.” Matthew 25:21
