October 1, 1952 ~ July 10, 2023 (age 70) 70 Years Old
Jimmy Don Spence, 70, a 23-year resident of Wellston, Oklahoma, passed to the afterlife peacefully, at home, on the night of July 9, 2023, surrounded by family and friends after battling cancer. He was born October 1, 1952, in Chandler, Oklahoma to Jewell and Rex Spence.
Jimmy enjoyed woodworking, whittling, mechanics, yard work, being outside, his dog, and his family. He was a mentor to many, and bonus dad to several extended family members. He will be remembered for his general orneriness and was well-loved. Jimmy obtained his welding certificate in the mid-1980s and lead his own successful welding business and rewarding career in the oil field in Texas.
Jimmy was preceded in death by his father, Rex Spence; and his brother, Gerald Spence. Survivors include the love of his life, his wife, Kim Spence; son, Adrin Spence; daughter Ariel Tinsley; brother, Dick Spence; mother, Jewell Spence; and grandson, Kai Spence.
In lieu of flowers the family is asking for donations to the humane society in honor of his loyal canine companion, Abby, that went to be with him in heaven just hours after him. Alternatively, the family would graciously accept donations to aid in the cost of services. A private interment will be scheduled later. Arrangements are under the direction of Lehman Funeral Home of Wellston.
