Jimmy Dale Darity transitioned to the next world peacefully on March 5th, 2022. Jimmy was born on a spring day April 17th, 1943, at home north of Swink OK to Hershel and Ruth Darity. He was preceded by his younger brother Lynn Darity and his lovely wife Juanell as well as his beloved granddaughter Cate Curtis. Jimmy married his high school sweetheart Dian Fleck on September 9th, 1962, and had two wonderful children. A son David Dale Darity of McAlester OK and a daughter Dana Darity Taylor of Caney Kansas. He had four beautiful grandchildren, Abby Taylor of Parsons Kansas, Lilly Dale Darity of McAlester OK, Caleb Curtis of Paris Texas. And a dear niece Darla Tillman of Swink OK.
Jimmy had a master’s degree from SOSU and taught school for four years. He was president of Security First National Bank and owned/operated the Super Stop in Sawyer Ok before retiring.
Jimmy was a generous benefactor for many charitable and civil rights causes most notably his grandchildren who he doted on. His curiosity and fierce thirst for knowledge and education has trickled down to his children and grandchildren continuing the ripple effect that Jimmy always believed would make the world a better place.
