Fort Gibson, OK

Whenever he was asked, “Jake, how you doing?” his answer would always be, “Oh, runnin’ about halfway normal.” We are all hoping that now his answer would be, “Oh, everything is back to normal.” Jakie Otto Unruh joined the love of his life on 9 January 2024 after being apart for a little over a year. She had predeceased him the day before Thanksgiving in 2023. He missed her every day.Jake was born in Greensburg, Kiowa, Kansas on 1 February 1933, the youngest son of Pete and Laura (Schmidt) Unruh. He joined his brothers, Amos, Chester, Arthur, Harry and sister Laverna, all of whom were waiting to greet him with open arms upon his arrival this time as well. The family would be completed a couple of years later by the arrival of his youngest sister, Marjorie, who survives him. He will be missed by his children, Cathleen (Rick) Hall and Eric Unruh. He also leaves behind 4 grandsons (Jacob, Justin, Jesse and Joseph) and 6 (soon to be 7) great-grandchildren (Cambria, Callum, Daisy, Elowyn, Theron, Evangeline and (soon-to-be) Lachlin (whom has likely been spending time with “Grandpa Hotdog” the last few weeks being filled in on just what he is in for). Also surviving are brother & sister-in-law, James and Glenis, and sisters-in-law, Patricia, and Sue, along with many nieces and nephews. He loved them all and looked forward to hearing from them, which happened frequently.Jake worked at American Airlines for the majority of his working years. He and Charlene also enjoyed square dancing with the Pairs and Squares club for many years. He played guitar (both steel and acoustical) and even built a few. He loved to play music with his buddies. It started when he was young, playing in a few places in his hometown area, sometimes with his sister, Marjorie. It continued in one form or another throughout his life. One grandson says that “playing with grandpa and his buddies” in his early teens is one of the reasons he continues to play music today. Jake also enjoyed whittling, built several pieces of furniture (although he claimed not to have any talent in those areas) and other activities. He was always ready with a joke and shared his humor and laughter with those around him.He and his beloved Charlene took up residence in Fort Gibson National Cemetery after a short ceremony, which included military honors, on 25 January 2024. He was a veteran of the Korean War.He is remembered by family and friends for his humor, his kindness, and the love story he shared with Charlene. He will be carried in our hearts until we are able to ask him, “how you doing, Jake?” and he answers this time with, “Oh, everything is back to normal.”

Louis Wayne McIntosh

Oct 06, 1960 - Jan 12, 2024

location-icon

Fort Gibson, OK

"Louis Wayne McIntosh, age 63, of Fort Gibson, Oklahoma entered his heavenly home on January 12, 2024. Louis was born October 6, 1960 in Oklahoma City, OK to Alvin \u0026amp; Vera (Burnett) McIntosh. Louis lived most of his life in Fort Gibson, OK and attended the Oklahoma School for the Blind in Muskogee from elementary school up to graduating in 1980. He lived on campus throughout the week which he loved because most of his friends lived there also. Most of all, he liked to hang out with his best friend, Phillip Rotramel, often getting into mischief because they apparently weren’t always the best influence on each other. After graduating, Louis also attended Arkansas Enterprises for the Blind for a short time, then returned home to Fort Gibson. In the early 90’s, Louis was able to live in town at the bait shop owned by his parents, Big Al’s Fishin’ Shak. This allowed him to ride his bicycle around town which gave him an independence he didn’t always have due to his poor vision. This was also around the time he started attending Valley View church and attending prayer meetings with Sister Lee Johnson, “who would give the devil hell”. Louis loved going to church, and according to his dad, “Louis would go to church anytime the doors were open”. He remained a faithful member of Valley View church until his death. Because of his health issues, Louis held few jobs in his lifetime, but was always ready and willing to lend a hand. Louis loved his family fiercely and loved being able to play with his nieces and nephews when they were kids. He especially loved it when he was able to help his mom with babysitting his niece, Jesi, and also loved getting to have fun times with his great niece, Reagan. Louis loved getting hugs from Chase, Riley, and Emma and he also loved getting hugs from his church family. Louis enjoyed visiting with family, friends, and even total strangers, and enjoyed reminiscing about the good old days, especially when a good country meal was included. He would share jokes, fun facts, and interesting articles with friends \u0026amp; family through email, and enjoyed staying in contact with his high school alumni group. He also enjoyed watching old tv shows, but mostly he loved playing on his Iphone, either online boardgames on goldtoken or reading and posting on Facebook. He was always excited about going swimming or fishing in the summer, but didn’t get to do either nearly as often as he wanted. Louis loved to laugh and always enjoyed hearing a good joke and telling one, even off-color ones every now and then. He’ll be remembered for his big heart, great smile, joyful laugh, and his Christian faithfulness. Louis is survived by his brothers, James, of the home, Kenneth \u0026amp; wife, Sandi, of Hitchita, OK, sister, Alma \u0026amp; husband, Charlie, of Dover, OK, nephews, Cory McIntosh \u0026amp; wife, Corrina, Kenny McIntosh \u0026amp; wife Jessica, nieces, Bailey Crossland, and Jesi Pickle; great nieces and nephews, Reagan, Chase, Rylee, Emma, Colton, Abby and Gunner, his beloved cat, Samantha, as well as numerous extended family and friends. Louis is preceded in death by his parents, brother, Tracey, and maternal and paternal grandparents. Pallbearers will be James McIntosh, Kenneth McIntosh, Cory McIntosh, Kenny McIntosh, Charlie Pickle, and Andy Pickle, with honorary pallbearer, Phillip Rotramel. In lieu of flowers, please send memorial donations to Fostering Hope of Muskogee, 917 W Broadway, Muskogee, OK 74401, Kids’ Space, 400 Court St, Muskogee, OK 74401 or other charity of your choice. Viewing for Louis will be 12PM-7PM, Friday, January 19, 2024 at Clifford D Garrett Family Funeral Home in Fort Gibson. Services will be held 10AM, Saturday, January 20, 2024 at Valley View Church in Fort Gibson with Pastor Don Rhyne officiating. Interment will follow at Three Rivers Cemetery in Okay, OK. The family of Louis Wayne McIntosh has entrusted his care, service, and burial to Clifford D Garrett Family Funeral Home, Fort Gibson. 918-478-2555.
