Born in Peterborough in 1934, his abilities as a team player and leader, and his athletic versatility came to the fore early.

Fowler quarterbacked the Peterborough Orfuns to the Canadian Intermediate A football title in 1955. He also played on six City Softball League Championship Teams, and in 1959 and 1960, he was the starting first baseman with the Lakefield Charltons when they won back-to-back Ontario Intermediate A Softball Championships.

While coaching in the Church Hockey League, Reg’s team reached the 1959 Peewee Championship final, then won it all in 1960. He also served 11 years as an executive member of the CGE Social and Athletic Association.
