Fowler, Olgar Gaines

Olgar Gaines Fowler, age 105, of Gravelly, AR died Friday, April 7, 2006 at Chambers Memorial Hospital in Danville. A son of the late Seth Thomas and Minnie Lofland Fowler, he was born north of Gravelly in a settlement then called Fowler Springs on September 15, 1900. With the exception of a brief foray to Oklahoma during the oil boom of the 1920's, he had lived his entire life in Gravelly. In 1929, when he was 29 years old and getting tired of his own cooking, he went to his girl friend, Morie Bond, and asked her to marry him. She accepted and they decided to get married that night. He went to see the local Methodist minister, Rev. Coffer, who agreed to perform the ceremony. The preacher asked him where he wanted to be married, and O. G. said he would like to have the ceremony down on Parks Creek, a local stream. He and Morie set in a Model-T Ford in the dark as Brother Coffer conducted the marriage. A bit unconventional, perhaps, but the marriage lasted over 74 years and only ended when Morie went on to her final reward at the age of 101. The same year they married, O. G. borrowed money and put in a fair sized cotton crop. A drought came, and the crop was a total bust. It was also the year the stock market crashed, making times even harder. These difficult economic times tempered his spending habits and caused him to learn how to hold onto a dollar. Eventually, he stopped growing row crops and made his living with cattle. He was an expert at assessing the value of cattle and often made money buying and selling them. He continued to raise cattle until he was about 96 years old. Morie kept the books for the farm and was a meticulous records keeper. O. G. was a man of faith, and was very faithful in visiting Morie in the nursing home as frequently as his health would allow. He comforted her and remained at her bedside during her last two-day hospital stay. O. G. and Morie had one child which died at birth.

He was also preceded in death by his parents; three brothers, Euel, Baxter and Amos Fowler; and four sisters, Hazel Hunnicutt, Vileka Billingsley, Aimee Hunt and Helen Findley.

Survivors include two sisters, Dewey Hunnicutt of Richmond, California, and Bobbie Weems of Carlsbad, New Mexico, a niece, Shirley Aikman of Bluff ton, and a multitude of other nephews and nieces, grand-nephews and nieces, great-grand-nephews and nieces and great-great grandnephews and nieces.

The funeral was held April 10 at the Gravelly United Methodist Church, officiated by Rev. Eddy Howell. Burial was in Parks Cemetery near Nola, Arkansas, by Shinn Funeral Service. Active pallbearers were Jim Roberson, Newt Roberson, Junior Rhoades, Jake Pickens, Joe Pickens and Jim Aikman. Honorary Faye Rhoades and Way Ion Defoor. Memorials may be made to the Gravelly United Methodist Church. (WWW.YellCountyObits.org, Yell County Record, Danville, Arkansas: Obituary was published on Wednesday, April 12, 2006)
