Obituary for William D Groseclose

Don Groseclose, 68, passed away on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 after a brief illness. He was born on May 1, 1951 in Mangum, Oklahoma to Daisy Margrett (Henson) and Earl Albert Groseclose. He lived in Mangum for a short time before moving to Oklahoma City and graduated from Capital Hill High School. He most recently lived in Verden, OK. Don was a jack-of-all trades and worked at many things including construction, fence building, selling ice cream out of a truck, hauling hay and doing repair work. He worked for the City of Anadarko for several years in grounds maintenance. He always enjoyed working with his hands, no matter the job. He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed going to swap meets, fishing, collecting antiques, collecting knives, and spending time with horses. He loved to watch OU and Thunder games and watching the old Westerns on TV. He enjoyed listening to Elvis and old country songs. He followed his rule of only wearing jeans. No one ever saw him in a pair of shorts. He loved his grandchildren and Papaw/Daddy will be greatly missed. Don attended the Cowboy Church in Gracemont, OK.
