Sean Fowler, 2001

Sean Fowler died suddenly on 18 August 2020 after a brief illness, aged 54.

Sean was a “larger then life”, charismatic guy, always quick with joke but as sincere as you could ever wish for.

After his father Warren died in 1996, Sean took over the business – Warren Fowler Earthmovers and has since been a very successful contracting business in the Auckland scene. He acquired the McNicholl Road Quarry at Clevedon, Auckland and later sold this to Fulton Hogan.

Sean had been a member of the IOQ for many years and was a part of the 2001 Annual IOQ/AQA Auckland Conference organising committee. While he was not a regular attendee at the local or Branch meetings, he felt that membership was worthwhile to stay in touch with latest quarrying news. Sean did attend a number of the Auckland Branch Christmas functions.

We extend sincere condolences to his family at this sad time.
