Royal R. Fowler

News has been received here of the death in Stockton last week of Royal R. Fowler, age 72 years, a well-known former Merced county grain farmer.

Funeral services conducted by the officers of the Stockton Lodge of Elks were followed by a requiem mass in St. Mary's Catholic Church in that city.

For many years prior to about thirty years ago, when he disposed of his farming interests in this county and moved to Stockton, Mr. Fowler was successfully engaged in farming in what is now known as the Tuttle section. Roy Fowler was a kindly, jovial gentleman of the strictest integrity and was universally respected.
