Parker County: Sheriff Fowler Recovering

Story in the Weatherford Democrat…Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler is recovering after after a double lung transplant last week. Fowler, 79, spoke with the newspaper by phone earlier this week. He said he’ll be out of work for two or three weeks and then he’ll be ready to get back in the saddle. Fowler, who has worked in law enforcement for more than 50 years, has served as the sheriff for Parker County since his election in 2005.  Re-elected last year, Fowler has three and a half years on his current term.
