Donald Dean Edmoundson, 74, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, April 25, 2018 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Don was born February 7, 1944 in Tulsa to Cleo and Phoebe (Graham) Edmoundson.
Don is what you’d call an extraordinary man. There was not one person he ever met that didn’t take a liking to him. Just his smile alone would light up the whole room. He enjoyed watching football, especially The Dallas Cowboys or The Oklahoma Sooners. You knew if either team was playing you had to get out of the way of the tv and if you didn’t he’d make sure you did. “You make a better door than you do a window” was always his favorite line. Don also enjoyed fishing, lake life, and traveling with the love of his life Gloria.
Don and Gloria were married on June 13, 1983 and have been inseparable ever since. There was nothing Don loved more in this world than his Gloria. To this union he gained two step-children and years later all the grandchildren and great-grandchildren that came along with them. Don has three children of his own: Rickey Edmoundson, Mark Edmoundson and Shelley Travers who he loved dearly. He showed each and every one of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren a love that they’ll never forget. He was the most selfless hard-working man and revolved his world around his family.
Don worked at Dowell Welding & Fabricating for around 15 years and was currently employed at Ray Francisco’s up until the time of his passing.
Don is preceded in death by his Mother Phoebe, his Father Cleo, his Aunt & Uncle: OB & Slim and Son-in-law Bobby Travers.
He is survived by his Wife Gloria Edmoundson, Brother Vernon Edmoundson, Children: Rickey Edmoundson (Laura), Mark Edmoundson (Brenda) and Shelley Travers, Two step children whom he loved as his own: Cindy Crockett (Monty) and Gary Graham. He is also survived by his loving grandchildren: Nicholas and Gillian Edmoundson, Jacob, Elias and Grace Edmoundson, Ryan Graham, Kaylee and Joshua Cox, Dawn, Robert and Anna Travers, & Riley and Braden Caple. Along with 8 great-grand children and a host of nieces and nephews. Don will be missed by all and his memory will be forever cherished.
