“Capt. Vincent Fowler, originally from Rosedale, made the supreme sacrifice on June 4, 1999. Former member E.234/L.123, L.7 and L.173. In tribute, P.S. 108, ‘The Captain Vincent Fowler School’ at 108-10 109th Ave. in South Ozone Park, will have a celebration this Wednesday at 9 a.m. in honor of the 15th anniversary of his passing. R.I.P. Thanks, John (The Rokester) Rokee.” Backtrack to Feb. 1, 2001, at Sportsmania Pub in Rosedale, when John Fowler (Ladder 176), Lt. Jerry Roche (Engine 265) and Liam Flaherty (Rescue 4) walked in. “I was told we could find you here, Mighty,” John Fowler said. “On behalf of the FDNY, I would like to present you this plaque. It reads: ‘In memory of Capt. Vincent G. Fowler to the Mighty Quinn. In great appreciation for your generous support of the Capt. Vincent G. Fowler One Pitch Tournament and Family Picnic.’” Mighty missed with the Indians on Monday and likes the Bruins on Tuesday. The deficit is 343 sirignanos.
