Stiles passed away on Friday, December 4, 2020, at Oklahoma City.
He was born on August 8, 1943, to Claburn LaMarcus & Juanita (Franklin) Stiles, in Farris.
Stiles graduated from Coalgate High School and attended Haskell Indian Nation University studying to become a butcher, until he was drafted to Vietnam.
He served our country proudly as a soldier, welder, and expert rifleman from October 1965 to October 1966.
Upon returning home from Vietnam, Stiles became a master carpenter and would travel across the United States, building commercial and residential properties. He loved the adventures he had while on the road and the memories he made with his friends and brothers.
Stiles never knew a stranger and always made sure those around him were happy and taken care of, whether it be a place to lay your head or money to get you through a hard time. He could light up a room with his smile, could spin a good tale, and never met a woman he didn’t love. Stiles found the beauty in the people and world around him, even when others may not. He was a great father, friend, uncle and brother. He will be truly missed by his family and friends.
Survivors include his son, Jon David Stiles of California; daughters, Heather Thompson and husband, Doug, of Edmond; Kristy Hall and husband, Darren, of Oklahoma City; Diana Williams of Coalgate; grandchildren, Austin Russell of Edmond; Dalten, Kayden and Daven Hall, all of Oklahoma City; Mati and Ernest Trevor Smith, both of Coalgate; great-grandson, Leo Russell of Edmond; brother, J. C. Stiles and wife, Sandy, of Coalgate; sister, Linda Sue Wilson and husband, Gary, of Coalgate; sister-in-law, Carol Stiles of Coalgate; brother-in-law, Doug Ward of Coalgate; numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives, and a host of friends that he loved dearly.
