John Clark Anthony was born Dec. 15, 1914, in Phoenix, Ariz., to Clark Rogers Anthony and Mary Ellen (Finnegan) Anthony. He passed from this life on Sunday, Dec. 11, at his home in Tecumseh. He was 90 years, 11 months and 26 days at his passing. John was only 4 days from his 91st birthday.
He married Willimae Patton on Nov. 23, 1938, in Hawthorne, Calif. To this union were born three children all who are living near Tecumseh.

John was a retired pipefitter out of Local 250 and worked for oil companies. John grew up in the Los Angeles, Calif., area and lived in Compton, Calif., for many years before moving to Oklahoma about 1971.

John helped deliver Meals on Wheels to local senior citizens for several years until his health no longer permitted him to do so.

He liked to play his harmonica at the Tecumseh Senior Citizen Center and was Frontier Days King two or three years ago.

John was witty and loved to entertain others or bring a smile to their face.

John was preceded in death by his only brother, George Anthony; wife, Willamae Patton Anthony; three grandchildren, Cody Oldham, Shelby Anthony and Breanna Leonard.

At John's request, there will not be a public service but a private family service at the cemetery.

Donations to his memory can be made to the Tecumseh Senior Citizen Center.
