Fruit Heights Unsung Hero 2021

Bob Fowler
Fruit Heights City is pleased to honor Bob Fowler as our 2021 “Unsung Hero”. Bob has lived a life of service to his country and community. A 9 year Fruit Heights resident, Bob is involved in many facets of volunteerism with a focus on emergency preparedness.

Bob spent his military career working full-time for Headquarters, Utah National Guard, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel in July 1994. After working for 11 years for the Utah Department of Health, Bureau of EMS and Preparedness, and six years with the Utah Division of Emergency Management, he retired a second time in July 2013. After hundreds of hours of military and disaster response courses, he became a Utah Certified Emergency Manager in 2019.

Bob never sits still, so after retirement he began volunteering for many disaster-related organizations such as the Community Emergency Response Teams, NWS severe weather spotter program, Amateur Radio Emergency Services, the VA Medical Center Emergency Response section, and Citizen Corps Councils. He’s still an active member of the Health and Human Services Region VIII Disaster Mortuary Response Team. Last year Bob was deployed to Travis AFB, CA, and at a Brooklyn, NY portable morgue in support of the COVID-19 response. Locally, you can find him shoveling driveways, writing emergency prep messages, and organizing church and city service projects.

Bob, and his wife, Shannon, have four daughters, eighteen grandchildren, and one great-grandson. Bob says “there’s still much to do in preparation for our next disaster. On June 6th, I officially became older than dirt as I reluctantly celebrated my 80th birthday. I look forward to my final retirement – from volunteering!”
