There is now a new maple tree located on the east side of the Seymour Library dedicated to the memory of the late Cortland “Cort” Fowler, Jr. Family, friends and retired and current Rotarians joined to honor Fowler, who died four years ago. He was a 31 year member of Brockport Rotary, a loyal Rotarian noted for his cooking at the old LPGA, the Arts Festival and other club functions; his dry and quick wit (often expressed during his role as the club’s long time sergeant-at-arms), his kindness and dedication to Rotary.  A world traveler, Fowler still maintained perfect attendance by makeups at Rotary clubs abroad and on ships at sea. He was recognized for his generosity to the Rotary International Foundation several times, but as the long time owner of Fowler Funeral Home, he was also generous to his community.  He was a good friend, an exemplary person and valued member of Brockport Rotary – he is greatly missed by all who knew him.
