Obituary for Murl Edgar Smoot

Murl Edgar Smoot, 96, died peacefully May 19, but only after countless visits from family & friends and digital blessings sent from as far away as New Zealand. Preceded in death by his first wife of 52 years, Betty Lee (Wade) Smoot, and daughter, Janice Marie Davis, Murl is survived by wife Harriet Ann Felgenhauer Smoot of Mustang, son Dwight Smoot of OKC, son Dennis Smoot of Washington, DC, and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Born in Canyon City, CO, Murl attended a one-room school house in Kim, CO through the 8th grade, then graduated from Central H.S. In Okla. City. After enlisting in the U.S. Army in 1941, he received training in electronics and served in the Signal Corp., conducting teletype maintenance. After honorable discharge in 1945, Murl opened a radio repair shop, which progressed with the times to be called “Smoot TV Repair,” operating in OKC until about 1987.
Murl became a Christian at an early age and served Christ the rest of his life by encouraging people to enjoy the abundant life in Christ. He attended Northwest Baptist Church for over 50 years. He taught himself how to play the guitar, played and sang gospel songs on Sunday morning nursing home visits.
He was an avid fisherman in his younger days, but a lifelong bowler until he was 95, despite not being able to see the pins his last five years. His team mates would tell him where the pins were.
After the death of his first wife Betty, Murl married Harriet Ann Felgenhauer on December 8, 1993. They were hoping for ten years together. The Lord blessed them with 23.
When the doctor told him he was dying, he said “I'm ready to go, I've had 96 wonderful years.”
Murl was a 32nd degree Mason serving at the Blue Lodge in Mustang working with the Shriners.
