Obituary for Walter L Filipek

Walter L. Filipek, cherished husband and best friend of Patricia (née Frato) for 52 years, dearly beloved father of Mark Filipek (wife Jennifer) and Melissa Mills (husband Jeff) and most loving and devoted grandfather of Avery and Jace, entered into eternal rest on January 5, 2019.

Walt’s life was marked by service to God, country, family, and friends. In his 26 years in the United States Air Force, Walt distinguished himself as a leader specializing in aircraft in Aircraft Maintenance and Munitions, retiring from Tinker Air Force Base with the rank of Colonel. He will be remembered for his kindness, generosity, intelligence, wisdom, wit, and especially his incredible sense of humor. He will dearly be missed by all.

He is preceded in death by his parents Walter and Helen (Née Golomb). He is survived by brothers Thomas (wife Travis) and Paul (wife Kate), sister-in-law Linda (née Frato) and brother-in-law Eugene Meinelt, and many beloved nieces and nephews.

Mass of Catholic Burial, 11 AM Friday January 11, 2019 at St. Philip Neri Church, with Fr. Patrick McCool O.S.B. officiating. Entombment in the Veterans Section at Elmwood Cemetery, Choctaw, Oklahoma.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to two of the many charities that were close to Walt’s heart: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, of Infant Crisis Services in Oklahoma City ( To honor his life and memory, his family lovingly asks that you touch another’s life with a random act of kindness.
