Craig Alan Fowler

July 31, 1990 - November 17, 2022


On Wednesday, November 16, 2022 Craig Alan Fowler, a devoted father, brother, son and husband, passed away from his earthly life at the young age of 32. He is survived by his wife, Alexis Leah Angelos Fowler, and their three children, Carson Craig Fowler (7), Luke Angelos Fowler (5) and Saylor Alexis Fowler (3), along with his parents, Craig and Anna Lisa Fowler, and his two sisters Lori (Matt) Conran and Amy (Aleks) Layne as well as his in-laws Craig and Kristin Angelos, Alayna (Blaine) Baker, Abigail Angelos, Austin (Julia) Angelos, Aaron Angelos and Alivia Angelos in addition to many nephews and one niece who all loved him dearly.

Craig was born on July 31, 1990 in Wheeling, West Virginia. He was raised in Austin, Texas where he spent the majority of his childhood before moving to Conifer, Colorado and attending Conifer High School. While in high school, he lettered in football, basketball, and swimming for the Lobos, and was the starting quarterback for the football team as well as a state qualifying swimmer. He also was named Conifer High School Male Athlete of the Year in 2009. Craig was known by his peers for having an adventurous spirit, and a big heart, and he enjoyed skiing, dirtbike riding, hiking, and taking motorcycle trips in his spare time. Upon graduating in 2009, he went on to serve a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Mendoza, Argentina from 2009-2011. He then attended Brigham Young University where he became the #luckiestmanintheworld, falling in love with his soulmate, Alexis Leah Angelos, and marrying her in the San Diego Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in August of 2013. Craig graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Civil Engineering in August 2015. He then headed west to pursue a Juris Doctorate Degree, attending Whittier College in Costa Mesa, CA. Only two weeks into Law School, Craig and Alexis welcomed their first child, Carson Craig Fowler in September of 2015, followed by their second child, Luke Angelos Fowler, in May of 2017. Later that year, they then moved to Boca Raton, FL where Craig completed his Law School education at Nova Southeastern University and earned his Juris Doctorate Degree in May of 2018. Craig began his legal career working in construction litigation before making a career change to Healthcare Administration. The new field took their family back to Orange County, CA in 2019 where, shortly after, their third and final child was born, Saylor Alexis Fowler.

Craig enjoyed many amazing things throughout his life, but his greatest gift was his three sweet children. He loved being a father and dedicated his life to making sure his children were happy, productive kids. He spent his weekends passing along his passion for woodworking, teaching them all about making beautiful things. Craigs love for his family can be seen all throughout their home, through the two story playhouse on the front porch, the bunk beds in his son’s room, and the dozens of other projects Craig completed for his family. Craig also loved driving his Tesla, the first car he ever bought. He loved driving his daughter, Saylor, to Costco, where they would shop for the family together and share a churro.

Craig was also an avid supporter of Alexis’ holistic approach to life, and loved partaking in her healthy, organic lifestyle. Together, they shared a passion for health and fitness, and were very active with a zest for life. They loved going to hot yoga classes and sharing an acai bowl together on the beach. Traveling was also so important to them as it provided their children with memories that will last a lifetime. A few of their favorite trips included Hawaii, Mexico, Disney Cruises, a trek out to Mount Rushmore and a fall foliage tour in the Rocky Mountains of Utah.

Above all, Craigs greatest feature can be seen in his service. Craig had a gigantic heart and an innovative mind, and used his skills to better the lives of all those around him. He was always willing to extend a hand, and was relentless in his efforts to make a difference in the community. His personal notebooks were full of blue prints and notes, as he loved expanding his expertise, regardless of the difficulty. Craig never shied away from a challenge, and there was no task too big that he could not accomplish.

In his free time, Craig enjoyed playing on his weekly basketball and baseball teams, attending crossfit, barbequing, and bodysurfing at the beach. He also enjoyed coaching his kids sports teams and snuggling with his wife.

Craig is a beloved son of our Father in heaven and we find solace in our knowledge that we will be able to reunite with him someday. We will forever remember his audacious spirit, peaceful demeanor, and loving soul. He loved his family with all his heart, and made a positive difference that will be felt for years to come.

    When Craig came into my life, I was 9 years old. He truly was my big brother and was always there for me through the highs and lows. From packing my lunches and sending me off to middle school, to taking me to the trampoline park and to get slushes from sonic, to making a mermaid tail together and designing other projects, to dreaming up my swinging bed idea, to late night phone calls helping me with my physics homework and reading my Spanish essays, and even gifting me his calculator that I’ve used all through high school and now college. I always felt very close to Craig because of our left handedness and similar interests (for example, back tucks, singing, swimming, and crafts) and I always felt the sincere love Craig had for me. I have always cherished my time with Craig and wish so dearly we could race each other into the ocean again. I will always love Craig and the influence he has had on me and I will miss him so much. Forever my brother.

    Alexis, Carson, Luke, Saylor-
    We love you all so much!
    We are just so heartbroken in the passing of Craig. He was such a wonderful Husband and Father. We Always appreciated the way he would play with and comfort the kids. He had a way to bring the fun to the kids plus the loving patience of a father to take a time out to console, comfort and love each one of them. We pray that you will know of our great conviction of the Savior Jesus Christ and of His all loving and all encompassing Atonement. We pray that an abundance of the Spirit will be felt in your home, your family and especially your heart now and the days to come.
    We Love You,
    Wallace, Kasey, Ellie, Andrew, Molly, Hadlee, Charley and Parker Madsen

    I love Craig as one of my own children. There is never a thought of my family that doesn’t have his face in it. My heart is broken into a million pieces. He was an important part of the family and will forever be in my heart. He was a strong, compassionate and loving father, husband and friend. I would FaceTime him so that he could help me figure out why my lawnmower wasn’t working, how to hook up my ring doorbell and even for electrical advice. There was not a task that Craig could not figure out, and you never had to even ask…..he sensed your needs and was there with any tool he could get his hands on. He remodeled our basement on a whim and stayed up all night painting it so he didn’t leave the job undone. He loved his children deeply and his big genuine smile showed it when he walked in the door after work, or when he pulled up at their soccer games. Craig loved Alexis with his whole heart. He loved the gospel and shared quite often his testimony of the Saviour. He has left an unfillable hole in my heart as well as this entire family. When I put up our Christmas tree this year, with all the state wood cut outs he made….I will smile through my tears…because I loved him.
    Alexis, Carson, Luke and Saylor….we are here for you. We love you and will be by your side forever!
