Graveside service for Roy Rainwater, 63 of Lawton, Oklahoma will be at 11:00 A.M. on Tuesday April 23, 2019 at the Ft. Sill National Cemetry, Elgin, OK. A good friend, Rev. Philip Jones will be officiating. Roy passed away on Wednesday March 27, 2019 at his home. Arrangements are under the direction of Whinery-Huddleston Funeral Service.
Roy was born February 21, 1956 at Ft. Sill Oklahoma to Roy A.J. Rainwater and Carolyn Roberts Rainwater. He was the oldest of four children.

While establishing Rainwater Plumbing in 1980, Roy also worked in Wichita Falls for Work Services Corp and the City of Lawton Neighborhood Services. A Christian man who loved God and his family, Roy had a huge heart and was always there to help. He couldn't refuse a child at the door who was selling something. He will be greatly missed.
