Robert Wayne Stowers, age 73, of Mableton passed away on January 29, 2011. Born on August 4, 1937, Wayne lost his long battle with colon cancer Saturday.

He was a selfless man, a good husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend to many. He was a talented, well-known drummer who loved old time country music and played with many local musicians. He was a long time member of the South Cobb Lions Club. Wayne is preceded in death by his parents, Claude and Annie Mae Stowers; and sisters, Doris Peppers and Loraine Compton. Survivors include his loving wife of 55 years, Betty; sons, Robert Anthony Stowers of Kennesaw and Steven Douglas Stowers of Dacula; grandson, Jonathan; granddaughter, Kathleen; brothers, Bill of Douglasville and Gary of Acworth; special friends, Ken and Bertha Johnson; and many nieces and nephews. The family wishes to thank Longleaf Hospice Care and Dr. Goldsweig and his team at the Georgia Cancer Specialists for all their many kindnesses during his long illness.
