Walter C. "Wally" Dowell, age 69, of Lambertville, Michigan, passed away on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 at Regency Hospital. He was born on August 11, 1949 to Henry Albert and Clarissia Alice (Slack) Dowell in Monroe, Michigan. Wally retired from GM PowerTrain after 35 1/2 years of service. When Wally wasn't working he loved working on his classic cars, canoeing and tubing down the river, camping with his family and grilling. He was always rooting for his favorite football team, Michigan Wolverines! Wally was a Mr. Fix-It, he wasn't happy around the home or the camper unless he had projects to work on to keep him busy.
