Attaway, Harold Rex Born in Wapanucka, Oklahoma on October 27, 1923 and died on April 13, 2010 in Dallas, Texas. He was the son of Joe Cleveland Attaway and Lillie Bee (Jack) Harris. Because Harold grew up during the Depression, his family moved to Boynton, Oklahoma in 1929, then to Tulsa in 1930 and then back to Wapanucka where he attended elementary school. His family moved back to Tulsa during his secondary school years. Although he enrolled in the University of Tulsa in 1941, he did not graduate until 1947. During this time he spent three years (1943-46) in the United States Army, where he served as a Chaplain's Assistant. On August 29, 1947, Harold married Lois Irene Rainbolt of Tulsa and they began their family there. He transferred to Dallas in 1952, where he lived for the rest of his life. Although he was ordained as a deacon in Lakewood Baptist Church, he spent most of his adult years as an active member of Park Cities Baptist Church, where he served as a "Life" deacon, sang in the choir, and was very active in the International classes. He spent the majority of his working years employed with Texas Instruments, Pollock Paper Company, and St. Regis Paper Company. He is preceded in death by his father, his mother, his wife, and his sister, Lillian Attaway Haney.
