Herman Leon Lancaster - a bright light to many, and friend to all - passed away leaving us with many memories of kindness, compassion, and love. He was born January 22, 1933 in Wellston, Oklahoma to Oscar and Mary (Lowrence) Lancaster. Herman grew up on a farm near Meeker, Oklahoma and graduated from Meeker High School. After graduation, Herman entered into service with the U.S. Army and served time in the Korean War completing his active-duty commitment in 1955.
Upon his return to civilian life, he entered the University of Oklahoma on the G.I. Bill and earned his Bachelors of Business Administration in 1959. During this time, he met Christine Estrada who he would marry in 1958 and would be blessed with two children, Rene’ and Craig. Herman and Christine raised their family in Tulsa and shared 52 years of marriage together.
The two were faithful longtime members at Crosstown Church of Christ and they loved serving the Lord. Herman was a great husband, father and provider as his family was well taken care of. He worked as an accountant for Amoco Corporation for 30 years retiring in 1990 after making many friends and great memories. In 2009, Christine passed away leaving Herman and his children in unknown territory. This new chapter in their lives brought along some changes that made us realize how strong he was and how strong he had made his children. Herman was blessed to cross paths with a former high school classmate where they developed a special relationship. In 2011, Herman married Delois and spent 9 years together sharing many wonderful experiences. She brought light back to his life as he did for her. Herman joined the Oakcrest Church of Christ continuing his commitment to the Lord and enjoying the fellowship through the church. Throughout Herman’s active and fulfilling life, he continued his commitment and service to our country by serving 9 years in the U.S. Army Reserves and nearly reaching 20 years serving in the U.S. Naval Reserve retiring in 1983 with the rank of Commander. Herman will be remembered for his big heart, unfailing work ethic, willingness to help anyone at any given time, and sense of humor. He will be deeply missed by his family, church family, and friends, but his joyful spirit will always be remembered.

Herman was preceded in death by his:
Parents, Oscar and Mary Lancaster;
First wife, Christine (Estrada) Lancaster;
Sisters: Ruth Tharp and Margaret Maier;
Brother, Ray Lancaster.

He is survived by his:
Wife, Delois Lancaster;
Son, Craig Lancaster;
Daughter, Rene' Lancaster;
Brother, Norvell Lancaster;
Step-Daughters, Rhonda and Debbie;
Grandchildren: Sarah, Stephanie, Alyssa and Calen;
Great Grandchildren: Sutton and Abram.

My condolences to all the family. I met Herman and Margaret at a Lowrance reunion a number of years ago where they invited me to participate in a Lancaster reunion in Tulsa. The family members welcomed me and asked me to identify people and places in old pictures. Surprisingly I filled in many names. I have great memories of Herman and my Lancaster cousins.
