George Byron Bostick

George Byron Bostick, 91, of Yukon, Oklahoma, passed away peacefully on Thursday, August 29th at Ranchwood Nursing Home.

Born November 8th, 1927, to George and Sarah Bostick, he lived in Woodville, TX, and later Oklahoma City and Yukon, OK.

George was a devout Christian who truly loved God, treasured his wife, and cherished his family. He began school in the 4th grade, and he graduated as Valedictorian from Kirby High School in Woodville, TX in 1945. He met the love of his life, Ana Mae Noble, in Abilene, and they married in 1950.

He started working as a tester for electronic circuit boards at Western Electric in Oklahoma City in 1960 (which was later Lucent, and then became AT&T), retiring in 1991. Soon after retiring, he began working for Walmart in Yukon, and many would have the pleasure of getting their hunting and fishing license from him in the sporting goods department. He then retired again after 20 years there.

In his spare time, for as long as he was able, he enjoyed tennis, bowling, and running. He also baked the world’s best apple pies from scratch, and people are still asking for the recipe. He loved reading his Bible, and he spent countless hours working crossword puzzles. He also enjoyed watching Thunder basketball games and at one time, was a huge fan of Texas University football.

George was preceded in death by his wife and best friend, Ann Bostick 26 years ago; they would have celebrated their 69th anniversary this year.

He was also preceded in death by his parents, George Wesley and Sarah Addie Bostick; brother, John; sisters, Lorene and Sarah; and grandchildren, Gabe Graves and Daniel Bostick. George is survived by his daughter, Cathy and her husband Mike Morris of Yukon, OK; his son, Kim Bostick of Yukon, OK; grandchildren: Kevin and Alison Morris of Mustang, OK; Angela and Jessie Smith of Kingfisher, OK; Shelley and David Simpson of Dallas, TX; Holly and Curtis Gooch of Yukon, OK; Ryan Morris of Mustang, OK; Shyree Nolan of Yukon, OK; and his five great-grandchildren, Emma, Tommy, Ana, Olivia and Charlie; and was honorary grandaddy to countless foster children.

Services will be held at 2 p.m., Wednesday, September 4th, 2019 at South Yukon Church of Christ, 11700 NW 10th Street, Yukon, OK, with interment following at the Yukon Cemetery.
