Ponca City Now - June 2, 2021 8:23 pm
August 9, 1944 – May 31, 2021
On Monday, May 31, 2021, Roy Allen Fowler went to be with our lord at the age of 76. Roy was born in the Osage in Oklahoma, on August 9, 1944 to Porter and Gertie Lue Fowler. He grew up in the Ponca City area with his brother Fred. Arrangements are under the direction of Trout Funeral Home & Crematory, 505 W Grand Ave, Ponca City, OK 74601.
Roy served his country in the Vietnam War in the Navy from February 8, 1965 to January 23, 1969.
If you asked Roy, his greatest accomplishment wasn’t his bowling or watching college softball. It was being a father and grandfather. Roy met the love of his life – wife Susan D.M. Fowler on the CB radio in the late 70’s. Their love grew to include Susan’s four children Darwin Raulston, Robert Raulston, Donald Raulston, and Candace Baldwin.
Roy is survived by his children Darwin Raulston and wife Charlene of Conway, AR, Robert Raulston of Colorado Springs, CO, Donald Raulston and wife Tami of Ponca City, OK and Candace Baldwin (nie. Raulston) and husband Douglas of Flower Mound, TX. His grandchildren Stephanie Raulston, Benjamin Raulston, Terran Stewart, Trenton Baldwin, Brittney Raulston, and Weslee Raulston and his great grandchildren Bradley Calvert, Brently Calvert, Braeley Stewart, Madyson Comeaux, Ethan Lowman, and Abby Raulston.
He was preceded in death by his beloved wife Susan D.M. Fowler, father Porter Fowler, mother Gertie Lue Fowler, his brother Fred Fowler and various other relatives.
