Obituary for J. D. Carpenter

J.D. CARPENTER
December 28, 1934 - April 30, 2019

J.D. was born in Mustang, Oklahoma, the youngest of seven siblings born to Ethel Gibson and James William Carpenter. Growing up on the family farms instilled a valuable work ethic and the creeks and riverbanks provided Huck Finn like lore for tall tales and sweet memories. He graduated from Mustang High School in 1952.

He and Sharon Patterson were united in marriage on October 7, 1955. To this union were born two daughters, Janet and Ginger.

For eleven years, J.D. was with the Oklahoma Air National Guard during which time he had the opportunity to join President John F. Kennedy on diplomatic tours in South America, Ireland, Spain, and Italy. He then embarked on a career in sales for Deco Distributors and later General Electric subsidiaries. After an initial early retirement, he was employed for twenty years with the Oklahoma Department of Tourism where he made lifelong connections and friendships.

J.D. is predeceased by his parents, six siblings, and second wife, Mary. He is survived by his children, Janet and Jim Jones of Oklahoma City and Ginger and Dwyatt Bell of Sulphur Springs, Texas, his grandchildren, Chance (Amy), Molly, Graham, and Griffin and great grandchildren, Ava, Hunter, and Fletcher, the mother of his children, Sharon Osborn, his sister-in-law, Evelyn Carpenter, and seven nieces and four nephews.

A service will be held in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd at McNeil’s Funeral Service at 10:00, Saturday, May 4th. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in J.D.’s memory to the Integris Hospice House or a charity of your choice.
