Dennis Fowler



September 30 1954 - August 9, 2022

With heavy hearts, we announce that Dennis passed away peacefully on August 9, 2022 in the palliative care unit on (3E) at the Riverview Heath Centre.


Dennis was predeceased by his father Thomas Fowler, mother Verna Fowler , and his brother Rick Fowler.

Left to cherish his spirit and his memories are, his Angel on Earth, Irene, his daughter Melanie Fowler , his brother, Doug Fowler  and his sister Elaine Vinet (Rod Bluhm), His nieces and nephews, Collin Fowler, Ashley Fowler , Dylan Vinet, Jodi Vinet and numerous relatives and friends across Manitoba and and western Canada.


Dennis was born in The Pas, MB, at a young age he moved to Winnipeg. He grew up in Windsor Park - this is where he acquired his life-long friends and love of music.

Dennis lived life, his terms, his way, with open arms and a big heart - he had the never give up attitude.


Dennis was always seen with an infectious smile, a guitar in hand - entertaining at family gatherings, Folk Fest campground, busking around town - even busking across western Canada.


Dennis was a true entertainer - he brought a smile to everyone's face and left them wanting more - he had a way of touching everyone’s soul while giving away a piece of his.


He will be remembered and missed by many.


Dennis’s daughter Melanie , Munch, which he fondly called her,  was the apple of his eye. He mentioned in his last days that there was so much more he wanted to share with her.


In the later part of Dennis’s life he reconnected with a past love, Irene  - he found solace as they spent their time in Lac du bonnet playing guitar together and fishing the day away.


We would like to thank the the doctors, nurses and aids on 3E at the Riverview Health Centre for their exceptional care through Dennis’s last month of life.


Per Dennis wishes no formal funeral service will be held, instead, his wish was to gather, lift a glass to him and celebrate his life.


Forever in our hearts.
