GROSSE POINT WOODS (WXYZ) — A metro Detroit family is reeling after two devastating losses six hours apart.
David Fowler, 76, and his son, Gary, 56, both died due to complications from the coronavirus, according to Gary's daughter Paris McCray.
McCray said her grandfather, David, died on April 6 and her father on April 7 in his Grosse Pointe Woods home.
"He was in his recliner... that's where we found his body," McCray said. She added that her mother was asleep in the bed next to the chair when he passed.
"My father was a great man," Ross Fowler said. "He was well-loved."
McCray claims three metro Detroit hospitals declined her father COVID-19 testing and treatment. Her grandfather never went to a hospital to be tested before dying.
"If (my father) could of gotten admitted to any hospital and gotten the proper treatment and proper care, he would still be here," McCray said.
Since then, she said three family members have tested positive for the new virus, including their mother, she was rushed back to the hospital on Tuesday due to complications from the virus.
McCray believes the system failed her father. They want others to avoid the heartbreak they've endured.
"Get [tested]! Because we couldn't, we were denied," McCray said.
7 Action News reached out to Beaumont, Detroit Receiving, and Henry Ford hospitals where McCray said they went to get her father help.

To Our Valued Customers Concerning the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak
There is no higher priority to our entire Prudential Security Family than the safety of our customers and employees. We are in contact with medical professionals and are monitoring the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website, the World Health Organization (WHO) website, and government agency websites to stay on top of this evolving situation. We are making sure that our employees are practicing the proper steps as outlined by the CDC to protect themselvs from both contracting or spreading the virus, with a strict rule to stay home from duty if displaying any cold or flu symptoms.
We want you to feel confident while Prudential Security protects your establishment. As the concern continues to grow for the Coronavirus, we want you all to rest assured that we always take the necessary precautions to establish cleaning and sanitizing practices throughout each business day. Our guards and staff clean and sanitize all surfaces, door handles, work stations, computers, etc., that they come in contact with. As always, we are committed to upholding the highest standard of cleanliness by continuing to work closely with Ecolab, a global leader in cleaning products. Ecolab has shared best practices and the latest products that may be useful to combat the spread of COVID-19. As we continue to monitor developments and navigate through these challenging circumstances, we want you to know that you can rely on us always to put your health and safety first.
How long can the virus last on surfaces? Current evidence suggests that coronavirus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials.
How is the virus transmitted? Transmission of the virus occurs much more commonly through respiratory droplets than through clothes, utensils, or furniture.
What can we all do to prevent the spread of illness? Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Avoid close contact with people who are sick, or those who you may suspect are sick due to coughing or sneezing. Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash, then immediately wash your face and hands with soap or sanitizer. Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.

Wishing All a Happy and Safe Super Sunday!
Though the NFL officially formed in 1920, the Super Bowl didn’t happen until more than 40 years later.
The first Super Bowl, which featured the AFL and NFL champions, took place in 1966. The game was originally called the “AFL-NFL World Championship Game,” which wasn’t exactly catchy. The AFL Kansas City Chief’s owner, Lamar Hunt, proposed using the term “Super Bowl” to refer to the championship game.

After the leagues merged, the NFL split into two main conferences: the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). The champions of each now play in the Super Bowl.
Super Bowl Fun Facts
1. The Chiefs and the 49ers have never met in a Super Bowl. But this is the SECOND Kansas City versus San Francisco championship. In 2014, the Giants beat the Royals in the World Series.
2. This is the first appearance for the Chiefs in 50 years. In 1970, they beat the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl 4 for their first and only Lombardi Trophy.
3. This is the 49ers’ seventh appearance. San Francisco went to five Super Bowls between 1982 and 1995, and won all five of them. They returned to the big game in 2013, but lost to the Baltimore Ravens.
4. If the Niners win, they will tie the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl victories in NFL history, with 6.
5, Last year, Super Bowl LIII drew 98.2 million viewers.

Prudential Security Officer Fitzroy Clarke Receives Above & Beyond Award
Pictured on the right is Security Officer Fitzroy Clarke receiving our prestigious Above & Beyond Award, and on the left is his supervisor Mike Bard. Mr. Clarke went above and beyond during our first week of operation at a significant account in Pennsylvania. Because of his high level of vigilance, his efforts helped lead to the apprehension of an internal thief. Fitzroy noticed that the seasonal employee was exiting with multiple cell phones on his person. Our guard followed proper protocol and alerted our client's management, which leads to the arrest of the individual, and the recovery of the client's property. Thanks to Officer Clarke, Prudential Security has made an immediate impact on our client's bottom line. At the same time, we sent a message to the other employees, that what happened with the other guard company's will not occur with Prudential. Thank you, Mr. Clarke, for a job well done and Happy Holidays to you and your family!
