Obituary for Ricky Lee Dawson

Ricky "Rick" Lee Dawson, 58, of Anadarko, Oklahoma, passed away on Thursday, February 7, 2019 peacefully at his home with his family by his side. Rick was born May 5, 1960 in Champaign, Illinois to Julia Thompson and Alfred Dawson. Rick finally found the love of his life, Ida Shatto and married her on February 14, 2004, Valentine's day so that he would never forget their anniversary.

Rick was employed through Mannschreck Farms doing their lawn and landscaping and also assisting wherever else he may have been needed. In his free time he would mow lawns for other people and would always help his neighbors out when they asked.

Rick's favorite spare time hobby was spending time with his family. He loved to cook out and just hang out at the house watching his family just being themselves. Of course, there was always music playing somewhere, and the stories he would tell you, some of them you would still be laughing about. Rick was also an avid fisherman and a garage sale fanatic. You could bet he'd be up and out early every Saturday morning looking for them "good sales", but would be disappointed when the day was long and he didn't find anything. When he would go fishing it would take a little extra time for him to get ready. His best bud, "Uggers", he called her, would be right by his side begging to go with him, and of course he would take her and the two of them would spend hours, sometimes even days in their same spots. Just a man, his dog and a bag of beef jerky.

Rick is preceded in death by both parents, adopted brother, Douglas Evers; step daughter, Debria Shatto and his best friend, David Thompson.

Those left to cherish his memory is his wife, Ida of the home; the two most precious loves of his life, his great granddaughters, Jasmine (Jazzybear) and Bianca (Binky); stepdaughter, Elizabeth Keahbone and husband, Edbert Jr, all of Anadarko; grandsons: Petty Officer 3rd Class (USN) Joshua Keahbone and fiance', Erin of Oklahoma City, Lance Corporal (USMC) Joseph Keahbone, Jeremiah Keahbone, Quanah Keahbone and Justin Keahbone of of Anadarko; granddaughters: Jolleen Keahbone and spouse, Toby Watashe of Okmulgee, Marsha Keahbone, Edwina Keahbone and fiance' Todd Bennett all of Anadarko; sisters: Carolyn Flannigan of Anadarko, Paula Dawson of Champaign, Illinois, and a very special friend, Misty Lupton of Anadarko along with many other friends and acquaintances.

Memorial services will be at 1:00 P.M. on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at the Smith Funeral Home Chapel.

Services are under the direction of Smith Funeral Home, Anadarko, Oklahoma.
