RATLIFF CITY — Carl Pevehouse passed away Saturday, April 26, 2014 at his home in Ratliff City, Okla., surrounded by his loved ones.

He was born Dec. 10, 1933 in Oktaha, Okla., to Theo Henry Pevehouse and Edna Marie Jones Pevehouse. Carl accepted Jesus Christ as his savior at an early age and was of the Assembly of God faith.

He graduated from Oktaha High School and attended Oklahoma A&M. Carl served in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict. He married Rozella Baker and to that union three children were born; Cheryl Pevehouse, Tammy Pevehouse-Townley, and Curtis Pevehouse.

Carl was self-employed in oilfield valve repair and separator business, starting PV Valve in 1976. His hobby and passion, was breeding, raising, and racing quarter horses. He was a true horseman in the quarter horse industry. He started the “Candy” line of horses in 1979. Carl has had much success with his “Candy” blood line which has produced many winners, including the Remington Park Derby in April of this year.

For over 30 years he was a member of the American Quarter Horse Association and the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Association where he served on the Board of Directors for several years. In February of this year, Carl was named 2013 Champion Oklahoma Owner and Breeder. He also won this honor in 2011 & 2012.

One of his earlier points of pride was in the early 1960s when he was the second rancher to bring Charolais cattle to Oklahoma. He and Rozella had a small ranch by the name of Rose P Ranch. He was also a very accomplished auctioneer.

Carl is survived by wife, Rozella, of the home, children Cheryl Pevehouse, of Ratliff City, Tammy and husband JR Townley of Ardmore and Curtis Pevehouse of Ardmore.  He is blessed with eight grandchildren: Shawn, and husband Jerry Ellis of Oklahoma City, Mark, and wife Kristen of Moore, Jenna Jameson of Oklahoma City, Jessica Jameson of Oklahoma City, Brianna Pevehouse of Blanchard, Logan Townley, Noah Townley and Victoria Townley of Ardmore. 

He has 10 great-grandchildren: Ashton Ellis, Alexee Ellis, Lillian Rowe, Ella Rowe and Truman Rowe of Oklahoma City, and Bryce Hance, Jayce Hance, Marlee Jameson, Taylee Jameson and RJ Jameson of Moore.

Serving as pallbearers are nephews Bill Pevehouse, Bret Pevehouse, Ronnie Pevehouse, Craig Baker and grandsons, Logan Townley and Noah Townley. Honorary pallbearers are Jim Kegan, Richard Wilburn, Clint Crawford, Danny Briscoe, Mike Womack, Kelly Tucker, and all employees of PV Valve and PV Farms.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Permanently Disabled Jockey Fund, and the Nazih Zuhdi Transplant Center, c/o Integris Baptist Hospital, 3300 NW Expressway, Oklahoma City, OK 73112.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
