Resident of the Month
Max Fowler was born and raised in Mountain Rest, South Carolina. He was always big into engineering and mechanics and loved to rebuild pickup truck engines. His father was a farmer, and before Max went off to school, he would help his dad, building even an artificial pond once. He loves problem-solving and helping people. His high school was short on bus drivers, so Max assisted with several routes and had a wonderful time bussing around his classmates. He also loved carpentry and lost half a finger in a shop class. He later worked for Tri-County Tech teaching cabinet making and welding. They made him the head of maintenance shortly before his retirement. He was also the church treasurer and was awarded Deacon in Meritis.
Max enjoyed hiking and going to beaches; his favorite pastime at Oakview is sitting outside and enjoying the nice weather. He and his beautiful wife Fleta (of 60 plus years) had three beautiful children, two girls and a boy in the middle. There are 6 Flower-descended grandchildren and one great-grandson. Max is very excited about the great-granddaughter on the way.
