Ray Fowler, 72, moved to heaven on the evening of February 5th, 2022. He was born on August 28, 1949 in Elyria, Ohio to Frank and Katherine Fowler.
Ray married Catherine Fowler his high school sweetheart on August 27, 1968. Ray was a driven, hardworking man whose stubbornness and determination had no limit. He came from a family of 11 brothers and sisters. Growing up life was hard, but these challenges molded Ray into the father he became. Ray was bound and determined to succeed in life and was ready and willing to work hard enough to make it happen for his family. Ray started his first and only company Marion Pnuematics and Hydralics at the age of 28.
Ray was as honest as they come, if he told you something consider it done. He had a love for his grandchildren like no other, they were his weak spot and they loved him as he loved them. He was a man of few words often direct and to the point. That was RAY. He had a special way of customer service. Customers where often meet with “What do you want?” What’s your business?” these greetings will be what we remember the most. Through his tough façade was a very kind and loving man that we will miss forever. We hope you are fishing in heaven!!
Ray is survived by death by his wife Catherine Fowler. Children Frank, Melissa, Joe, and Todd Fowler. Grandchildren Lauren, Katie, Ashley, Alison, Emily, Matthew, Rylan, Collin, Julia, Frankie and great grandchild Ethan.

He was fiercely honest and would not put up with any shenanigans. He really despised stupidity as well, but still tolerated us! If you look up Libertarian in the dictionary, you will see Ray’s picture there. He was one of a kind.
We will miss Ray, but our memories will remain forever. I know he’s up there fixing an angel’s laptop!
