Oscar Crawford Thomason, age 93, of Mangum, passed away early Saturday morning, October 27, 2012, at Grace Living Center, in Mangum.
Mr. Thomason was born in the Wildcat Community on April 6, 1919, to Oscar and Nora (Clendenon) Thomason. After graduating from Centralvue School in 1938, he began farming and ranching. On July 23, 1951, he married the love of his life, Eloise "Billie Jo" Waller, in Sayre, and they spent the next sixty-one wonderful years together, until his death. A farmer-rancher at heart, Crawford and Billie Jo lived on the same farm for over sixty years, until their home burned on April 12, 2011 and they moved to Mangum. For several years, Crawford owned and operated the Pool Hall, in Mangum, and became very good in the game. During his spare time, Crawford enjoyed fighting chickens, playing poker and shooting pool.
