J.C. Lord was born on March 12, 1943 in Tulsa, OK to Luther Jackson and Dora Elizabeth Lord. He died on May 25, 2021 in Tahlequah, OK at the age of 78.

J.C. was very proud to be the first in his family to earn a High School Diploma from Nathan Hale High School in Tulsa, OK. After High School he enlisted in the Navy serving in the Vietnam War aboard the USS Loftberg.

During his service he married Sarah Morse and to this union was born a son Charles Jackson Lord. At the end of this union and upon his honorable discharge from the Navy, J.C. met the love of his life on a blind date. J.C. married Ester Jane Myrick on November 26, 1965 and to this union two daughters were born, Janette Clarice and Johna Sue.

After J.C.’s honorable discharge from the Navy, he worked for a few years for McDonald Douglas as a boiler room maintenance man before beginning his 30 year career with Public Service Company of Oklahoma, starting out as a lawn maintenance man and working his way up ending his career as a Working Foreman on a line crew. J.C. is best known for his willingness to always take a call out. He once told his family, “I think about the older people and children without power and it is my job to get their lights back on, ”The year of J.C.’s retirement was possibly the only time in his career that he was not “high man” on overtime.

J.C. loved coaching his daughters in softball. Taking Johna’s team to Nationals was a great achievement and one he was extremely proud of. It was not unusual for J.C. to work all night on an outage, leave work long enough to coach one of the girls in a game, and then return to work to finish the job. He never missed one of their games.

After retiring from PSO, J.C. and Jane moved to Jet, OK where J.C. farmed and worked at the Jet COOP for a time before J.C.’s dementia took his memories. In February of this year, J.C. and Jane moved to Tahlequah to be closer to the girls for them to help in the care of J.C..

J.C. is preceded in death by his father Luther Jackson Lord and his mother Dora Elizabeth Mustoe, two brothers, L.J. and Jerry Lord.

J.C. is survived by his wife: Ester Jane Lord of the home; one son: Charles Jackson Lord of Albuquerque, NM; two daughters: Janette Clarice Lamb and husband Kelly of Stigler, OK and Johna Sue Holland and husband David of Ft. Gibson, OK; three grandsons: Blaine Lamb of Stigler OK, Zach Lamb of Little Rock AR, and John Holland and wife Cassi of Hennessy, OK; two granddaughters: Chelsea Lyndsey and husband Austin and Emma Holland of Ft. Gibson, OK; four great-grand children: Breckin Lamb, Hallie Lindsey, Stella Lindsey, and Nora Holland; and an honorary grandson: Tim Branch, wife Alicia and children Shaylee and Carter of Edmond, OK; one sister: Judy McCarty of Owasso, OK; one brother: Paul Lord and wife Alice of Broken Arrow, OK; and many, many nieces and nephews.

J.C. will always be remembered for his love of children and extraordinary work ethic.

A memorial service will be held at 10 am Saturday, May 29, at Lescher-Millsap Funeral Home located at 2801 Chandler Road in Muskogee with Reverend Darren Riddle officiating. There will a graveside service in Jet, OK at a later date.
