So Sorry to hear about your loss, What a great man all the way around. Two things I remember other then the bus trip was him so tall and proud walking around the play ground with a kick ball under his arm after we kicked it over the fence to many times. :-) and him getting into his little Honda Civic car. It always made me smile to see a tall man in such a small car. Several of us

I was saddened to hear of Doc's passing! Heaven received another angel! He touched countless young lives in his teaching career! He was such a wonderful man and so generous. He was the BEST teacher I ever had! He gave us that had him as a teacher so many wonderful experiences and memories of junior high at St. Mary's! Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time. May God's love envelope you and give you peace!

So sorry to hear of the loss of a great man and terrific teacher. I will never forget Doc, standing in front of the classroom and always encouraging you to do your best. We all loved the field trips in the yellow bus and remember them well. I did have the pleasure of running into him years later and being able to chat with him as a professional adult and he still inspired me.
Thank you Doc for everything you taught us in the classroom and how to be better people!

Sorry to hear Doc had passed away. What a great teacher! He was definitely my favorite teacher in my elemenatary years at St. Mary's. He helped me to learn more and reach higher for my goals. Those early lessons and values he helped instill in me helped me excel through my high school and college years. I have many fond memories of our class trips and how proud he was to drive us around in the yellow bus. He always

Thank you! Thanks for every single ounce of encouragement, and helping me to strip away the things that became my excuses. Thanks for teaching me to question... You made an incredible difference in my life - educationally and spiritually.
Pray for me Doc...and give my Daddy my best, he loves you as much as I do (Maybe...)
To Doc's Loving Family - I am so sorry for your loss. I saw Doc at the funeral home a few years ago and

I am truly saddened by the passing of Dr. Fowerbaugh. On behalf of myself and the Brownlee family he will be missed. I remember him coming along with his wife to my own fathers funeral Wilbert Brownlee. He was my teacher and principle at Cathedral school. I hope and pray that the Fowerbaugh family will heal through this tough time. .sincerely, Wanda Brownlee

I am so sorry for your loss. Dr. Fowerbaugh was a fantastic teacher and a special man. I went to St. Mary's for eight years...ending with Doc. He was one of few teachers who came to my father's funeral when he was killed in a crash when I was a freshman in high school. It meant so much to me and my family that he would take the time to do that for us. He was a great man and he will be missed.
