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.

    My heart is broken for you all. Craig will be missed deeply. My boys loved the amazing play house that he built just for you all! He was an exceptional father to you sweet children. Just a few weeks ago, we were able to watch him play with you, chasing you all up and down the mountain as he also managed to gently help Alexis navigate the steep, rocky climb in her heels. Family Picture day was “pure magic” and I felt a special present as I photographed your beautiful family! You are all so strong and truly have a light about you! I am grateful for the knowledge that families can be together forever. Craig was thoughtful and I too, have a piece of his beautiful woodworking in my home. He and Alexis surprised me with a beautiful wooden cut out of our home state, stained to match the wood in our home, as a thank you for taking their photos. I will always love looking at it in our home and be reminded that it was handmade out of love from Craig! Another favorite memory was that he took me on my first ride in a Tesla! He smiled and said com on Ally, let me take you for a ride! during our drive sweet Saylor insisted that he play her favorite song, “I am a child of God” – together we sang and enjoyed a drive along the coast, being reminded of our knowledge that we are all children of our Heavenly Father, I know he is real and I know he watches over us through earthly and heavenly angels!! We too will always be there for you in the coming days and years ahead. Tonight we are sending you all of our prayers and love. Family is not just an important thing, it is everything!

    Scott, Allyson and Family

    One of my favorite memories with Craig was as I was living in Long Beach as a missionary, I just happened to run in to him at work during a particularly difficult time missing family at home. Craig’s light & loving spirit made me feel so comforted and that is how I will always remember him. That one happy visit turned in to something I looked forward to weekly on my mission. He was always so aware of others needs & was the first to help all around him. I loved watching him with his family. One of my last memories with him was taking a ride in his Tesla with my mom and Saylor. I left that night just in awe at what amazing parents him and Alexis are. I have been so touched by Alexis & Craig and feel so grateful to have been able to witness their life together. Sending all my love & prayers to Alexis, Carson, Luke, and Saylor 🤍 Craig will be missed deeply!

    I will always remember Craig for being so happy and full of energy. I loved getting to know him while he and Alexis were dating at BYU and always thought he was the nicest person. One of our favorite memories was playing cross-net on the beach with him this summer. We remember how much he loved Alexis, Carson, Luke, and Saylor and was so attentive to everything they needed. It was always easy to tell how much he truly loved his family. We are so grateful for Alexis and Craig’s examples and for the knowledge that families are forever! We love you Fowler family! Sending our loves and prayers! ❤️❤️

Craig was the most wonderful man and such an inspiration to all through his love, kindness, generosity and loyalty. It was always so evident how much he loved you all! He was the best of the best and we are so deeply sorry for your loss. We love you so so very much!

    When I was 12 years old, our Madsen family had a big family reunion at Bear Lake. I remember that I was sitting on the beach and kind of feeling alone. I barely knew him, but Craig noticed me and asked me if I would like to go out on the wave runner with him. We had a great time out on the lake, but more importantly, he made me feel like I was important. He treated me like a friend even though I was just a kid. He took the time to talk to me, and right then that was exactly what I needed. Since then, whenever I have seen him, he has been so loving. He has treated me like we were old friends. I’m so grateful for his example of showing love to others. I will miss seeing his smile at the next family gathering, but I will remember how his kindness meant the world to me.
