Obituary for Darrell Marx Lumry

Darrell Marx Lumry went to be with his Lord and Savior on June 15, 2018 at the age of 86. He was born on October 2, 1931 in Oklahoma City to Karl Marx and Elsie Blanche (Neidig) Lumry.

He proudly served his country in the Air Force Reserve, retiring after 38 years with the final rank of Senior Master Sergeant. He was employed at Tinker Air Force Base for many years as an aircraft electrician supervisor, and retired from Civil Service in 1991.

Darrell loved the outdoors where he fished, hunted, raised and trained coon hounds in his younger years, and bird dogs later in life. His favorite vacation spot was Vallecito Lake near Durango, Colorado. His passion was repairing most anything mechanical for family and friends. One friend called him Mr. Fixit, and the good Lord must have needed something repaired, so he called Darrell home. He was an active member of American Legion Post 127 where his commander stated he was always available for any project and served as an inspiration for all. He enjoyed church life and sang in the Senior Adult Choir at Choctaw Road Baptist Church for many years.

He was preceded in death by his parents; two sisters, Myrna Mae Lumry and Verla Fae (Lumry) Frizzell; and his youngest brother, Glenn Lumry. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 63 years, Mary (Rateliff) Lumry; four children, son, Darrel Ray and wife Jackie (Shanks) Lumry; daughter, Sue and her husband, Greg Martin; son, Mike and his wife Debbie (Woods) Lumry; daughter, Terri and her husband, Bob Wilkerson; two brothers and their wives, Ken and Pat Lumry and Lloyd and Deanna Lumry; sister-in-law, Carolyn Lumry; ten grandchildren and nine great grandchildren; and by numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Oklahoma Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
