Donald Raymond Fowler

Donald Raymond Doc Fowler passed away suddenly from this life at his home in Pasco, Washington on June 20, 2006. He left us without warning but did so on his own terms doing what he wanted to do. Doc was born in Blythedale, Missouri on September 30, 1924, to a large hardworking farming family but his desire to travel came to him early. Enlisting in the U.S. Navy at the age of 18, Doc saw WWII service in the Pacific, receiving an honorable discharge on March 26, 1946, and eventually landed in the Pacific Northwest to work at the Hanford Reservation as a police officer in the City of Richland where he met and married Wenonah Nona Henning, who passed away in 1988. Doc was a Mason and a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Doc’s family was always important to him and in his own way he made sure everyone knew that. We will always remember his meticulous behavior and attention to organization; everything had its place. Doc leaves behind his wife Mary Ann, sons Skeet, Skip and wife Tammy, and Tracy Kuntz and wife Geini, daughters Diana and husband Willy Bernard and Cindy and husband Jeff VanderPol, sisters Virginia Griffith, Kathleen Galbraith, Mildred and husband Bruce Underwood, Carol and husband Bill Jereczek, brother Marvin and wife Cindy, 12 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Preceding Doc in death were parents Clarence and Maude Fowler and brothers Randall and Francis.

At Doc’s request there will be no public service. A private graveside service will be held for the family.

  • Mary Ann, Skeet, Diana, Skip and all the rest of the family. We are so sorry we were not there to be with you at this time. You are all sure in our thoughts and prayers.

    Don was a truly wonderful brother to me and I loved him dearly and will miss him so much. At the same time you were having his Memorial Service Uncle Bill and I went to our church, lit a candle and said a prayer for him and all of you, so we were there with you in our prayers.

    We love all of you. Uncle Bill and Aunt Carol

  • Don was one of my favorite nephews! He always made me feel that I was a part of his family and he had a wonderful sense of humor! I will always hold him close in my heart!
