I had the very good fortune of serving as one of Fenix's physicians over the last 7-8 years. He and Malinda were very courageous as he made his healthcare choices. He spoke very fondly of his children and was proud of his accomplishments. I will miss him.
Malinda - My sincere condolences. I admire your courage as you embraced Fenix's healthcare choices and stood by him so ardently. I will forever remember you both.

Malinda, I am so sorry to hear of Joe's passing. I will never forget the time we spent together while you lived in Logansport. I live in your old neighborhood and see the big house on the hill everyday, reminding me of our work together to make it happen. I am proud to have had the opportunity to work with both of you. You helped me through some hard times, for which I am forever grateful. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Remember Joe Fowler?
Of course, I do.
I have lots of fond memories.
Let me mention a few.
From his mobile phone
“You’ve got the job.
Now don’t be late.”
To answer the phone
was my first task.
It must be correct
But “How?” I did ask.
Never say Insurance
It’s just not right.
I learned to say
insurance without even a fight.
We never heard “good morning”
When he came through the door.
It was “Another day of golden opportunity”
He’d say with a roar.

Thank you Joe for your daughter's hand in marriage, and for availing your wisdom to me. I always appreciated and respected you more than you knew. I know you will bless your family with the strength and integrity you have always been known for. Rest in peace my friend.

I worked for Joe when I was in high school mowing ,painting,snow removal etc his house and rental properties. I admired and looked up to joe and learned alot from him.I would say being a perfectionist at everything you do is the most important thing I learned from him and I eventually started my own company at the age of 25.I am so thankful to have had him as a mentor.

Malinda, I am sorry for you and your familys loss. I had not seen Joe for years, but he's not the kind of Guy you forget. I doubt if you remember me, But Joe and I use to play rqtball in Logansport once or twice a week and traveled to several competitions together, and just like your obit says, he was 13 years older than me, but whipped me regularly and at the time, that was not a easy task.

Dearest Lindy and Family,
We were so very sorry to hear of your beloved husband, Joe, passing. The obit was so wonderful and thank you for sharing your lives with us. I'm sure he was well taken care of with family by his side and Amelia's experience with hospice. She was with me when my mothers sister passed and I'll always remember her and how wonderful she was.
Bob and Joe had a lot of deep conversations through the years and he
