— Jackson “Jack” Fidler

Jackson  Henry Fidler, formerly of Chickasha, left this world on February 5, 2013 leaving many family and friends who will miss his wonderful, sweet nature.

Jack was born in Olden, Texas on March 16, 1924 - son of Frank and Gladys Jackson Fidler.  Most of his early years were spent in Olden and Cresson - southwest of Ft. Worth, Texas.  He graduated from Olden High School where he excelled in various varsity sports.  He enjoyed returning to Olden reunions throughout the years and was proud to be one of the oldest in attendance.

After a short time in college, Jack joined the war effort where he served as a tail gunner on a B-17.  On a bombing mission, his plane was shot down over Romania; and Jack became a POW for many months.  Upon his discharge from the service, he went to work for Magnolia (Mobil Oil) where he worked in many positions.   After his retirement he spent his time helping friends and neighbors with their projects.  Jack was quite a handyman and loved to help others.

Jack is survived by his daughter Jackie McCaughtry and husband Jim, step son Alan Scott and wife Susan, and grandchildren Kristi and Kory Bryan, Alan Jr., Chris and Glenn Scott.   He was preceded in death by a granddaughter, Sheryl Scott Steere; sister, EllaMae Bell; wife, Yvonne; and step son, Jimmy Scott.  

Private graveside services will held at a later date by the family.  He will be laid to rest with Yvonne at the family plot in Cresson, Texas.

Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Ferguson Funeral Home.
