Ronald “Ron” Deane Fulkerson, age 87, of Oklahoma City passed away on July 10, 2020 surrounded by his family and his caregivers Tearsa and Bekah. It was a perfect ending to an extraordinary life.

“Ron” was born in the middle of the Great Depression on December 11, 1932 to Clarence Glen “Tex” Fulkerson and Mildred Estelle Fulkerson. The family had a home in south Oklahoma City which was short on cash but long on love. Ron attended Capitol Hill High School where he was very active. Following high school he enlisted in the U.S. Army and served his country honorably during the Korean War with the 1st Field Artillery Observation Battalion.

Ron would tell you his best decision in life was marrying JoAnn. That marriage lasted until her passing just short of fifty years of marriage. Ron and JoAnn traveled the world and contributed to their communities. There were three children born of the marriage, Steve, Scott, and Shawn.

Ron earned his Bachelor’s Degree at Central State University. He then attended Oklahoma City University Law School at night while working for the FAA and obtained his law degree in 1967. Upon graduation Ron “hung a shingle” and began a sixty-year career practicing law.

The founding attorney of Fulkerson & Fulkerson, P.C., Ron had an extensive law practice, trying more than 100 cases over his 53-year career. Ron established a full-service Firm offering legal advice on a wide variety of issues, which proved to develop a rewarding and established practice. He upheld the ideals of the friendly country lawyer and was available to his clients at any time.

An avid supporter of South Oklahoma City, Ron served on numerous community boards and advocated on behalf of many civic organizations. He has notably acted as an advisor, counselor, and director of Exchange National Bank, now BancFirst, in Moore for over 35 years. Ron has also served as speaker on behalf of the Oklahoma Bar Association for numerous events and has been recognized by a variety of publications for the charitable and community-focused undertakings.

Ron and his boys were avid fishermen and bird hunters. They spent much of their time in the outdoors fishing for “Ole Moe” or hunting until dark. Ron’s motto was “always come early and stay late”. This motto applied in his legal career and his many hobbies.

Ron is survived by Steve Fulkerson and his wife, Sherry, Scott Fulkerson and his wife, Michele and Shawn Fulkerson and his wife Cindy.

PaPaw’s most prized possessions were his granddaughters: Shana Fulkerson, Sheridan Leake, Lauren Fulkerson, Jordan Fulkerson, Lindsay Fulkerson, and Camryn Fulkerson. He loved each of them dearly. This year he became a great grandfather to his great grandson George Leake, son of Sheridan Leake.

Ron was fortunate enough to meet Eleanor Rowan later in life and they enjoyed a very special and loving relationship during Ron’s final years. The family appreciates the love and care Eleanor provided Ron which made their life special. Eleanor will always be a part of the Fulkerson family.

Scott, Steve and Shawn, Patti and I want to tell you what a honor it was to know Ron. From running into him at the Civic Center to playing poker, I always gained knowledge by talking to him. The world has truly lost one of the finest persons that has graced this earth. Please let us know what we can do to help you during this. May God Bless your family.
