He was born in Savannah, Missouri on November 10, 1921.  Owen received his

played Fred Mertz on "I Love Lucy."  Frawley convinced Owen to come to

included regular roles on Bonanza, Peyton Place, The Andy Griffith Show, 
Our House, Manhunt and Shane as well as the movies Valley of the Dolls, 
Bonnie & Clyde, Vanishing Point, The Hand, The Last Star Fighter and The 
Apple Dumpling Gang.  As he grew as a character actor, Owen's list of 
guest-starring roles on TV series became extensive. They included: How 
the West Was Won, McMillan & Wife, Death Valley Days, Doris Day Show, Mod 
Squad, Murder She Wrote, Dynasty, Falcon Crest, Gunsmoke, Maverick,
