Obituary for John Daniel Surles

Vondel L. Smith & Son Mortuary 6934 S. Western Avenue Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

John Daniel Surles
Born: June 14, 1925
Place: Waxahachie, Texas
Died: October 13, 2018
Place: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
John, known by his friends as Johnny, was liked by all that knew him. He was a very kind and gentle person that believed in helping his friends, whether that was repairing a car, remodeling a home or church, he was always willing to lend a hand. Johnny was a trained mechanic and worked in Lawton at a couple of dealerships over a period of 20 plus years. His superiors recognized his good will and mild mannerisms and promoted him to the position of Service Writer and Assistant Service Manager. In 1975 Johnny and Alice relocated to Oklahoma City where Johnny worked for a local Chrysler dealership and in 1979 went to work for a local Ford dealership until retirement in 1987. After a short period of retirement he became bored of being at home and started working part-time for a Title company delivering titles until his next retirement in 2005.
Johnny married Alice (Gentry) on November 2, 1946. Alice preceded Johnny in death; they were married for 70 years.
They are survived by two children:
Daughter, Peggy & husband Carl Guetersloh;
Son, Johnny Lloyd & wife Jeannie Surles;
4 Grandchildren & 8 Great Grand Children

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Centennial Hospice. 13861 Quail Pointe Dr # A, Oklahoma City, OK 73134 Phone: (405) 562-1211
