Dec 16, 2020


Bryanta Maxwell, DNC Committeewoman

“This is a tough loss for our entire Democratic Party community. Don Fowler was a man of integrity and vision and I’ll always remember the guidance and support he gave me and other Democrats. Don is the type of hard working Democrat we all should strive to be like.”




Lessie C. Price, SCDP 1st Vice Chair

“I am still quite saddened and shocked by Don’s passing. He will be remembered not only for his contributions to South Carolina but to our nation. Don Fowler was a man of the highest political principles. Democratic principles he was willing to fight for as he advocated for the working class and a good life for all Americans.

He and his wife Carol were a dynamic duo for South Carolina if ever one there was. And you were running for office, you dare not come to this state with out speaking to the Fowlers first. Don Fowler was a trailblazer who was not only well thought of and loved locally, his influence over the national energy has permeated the entire Democratic party and that influence will carry on in his absence.”


Dr. Anthony Thompson, Jr., SCDP 2nd Vice Chair

“Don Fowler was a strong pillar within the Democratic Party. His leadership has helped to establish a presence and an influence amongst other leaders across the states in our nation. As a State Officer, I appreciate the respect and openness he kindly gave me. As a member of the James E. Clyburn Political Fellowship, I’m grateful of the political insight and knowledge he offered in educating some of our cohorts during the Fellowship training sessions. As an African American man, I’m also appreciative of witnessing his advocacy and observance towards racial injustice. He will be remembered for his knowledge, wisdom, leadership, and tenacity towards addressing issues that matter to people.”
