Glen was born Jan. 7, 1941, in Addington Bend, Okla., the son of M.C. Scivally and Ethel Fanny Bond Scivally.
He grew up and attended schools in Thackerville, Okla., where he served as his class president and salutatorian. Glen attended the University of Texas-Arlington where he received his bachelor’s degree in business and then went on to get his license as a C.P.A.

Glen loved listening to vintage country-western music. He traveled the world extensively and even traveled the U.S. on motorcycle. He loved cars and working on things. In his down time, you would likely catch Glen enjoying a smoothie or eating some Blue Bell ice cream.

The couple bore two children who survive, Rick and wife Jeneth Scivally of Arlington and Jay Scivally and wife Dawn of Ovilla. The union to his second wife, Jo Beadle of Mineral Wells, bore one adopted child, Ryan Austin Scivally of Bedford. Glen later married Kathye Davis-Scivally, who survives of the home.

Leroy Wiesmann was born to Carl and Ida Leub Wiesmann in Carlsbad, N.M., on July 8, 1933.
He died peacefully at the family home in Bixby, Okla., on Nov. 4, 2012.
He grew up in Gainesville, where he started working at the bowling alley at the age of 9. He bought a bicycle with his bowling alley earnings, which took him over two years. He attended St. Mary’s Catholic School where he played linebacker for the football team. After a stint in the Army for Uncle Sam (mostly stationed in Germany), he returned to Gainesville to marry the love of his life, Dolores Haverkamp of Muenster. The couple settled in Gainesville.
His post-military career began with Santa Fe Railroad. He worked full-time while attending school part-time at Cooke County Junior College. With four small children at home (and more on the way), Leroy took a leap of faith by leaving his job with the railroad to attend college full time at North Texas State University where he received his bachelor’s degree in accounting. In 1962, he began his accounting career in Fort Worth with Pan American Petroleum; he was transferred to Tulsa in 1965, when the company was acquired by Amoco. He worked for Amoco for 29 years until retirement.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Ida; his siblings Lawrence, Paul, Ed (Bertha) and Anna Marie Wiesmann-Turnham; and his daughter-in-law, Nancy Wiesman-Gates.
Leroy is survived by his wife Dolores of 57 years; and his seven children, Keith Wiesman (Sabrina), Lynn Davis (CJ), Bryan Wiesman (Sally), Curtis Wiesman (Kim), Daryl Wiesman (Suzy), Tammy McMurrian (Jimmy Jr.) and Deanna Bishop (Brad). Leroy is survived by 17 grandchildren, Rachel, Gina, Alexandra, Lee, Taylor, Leslie, Joey, Jordan, Chad, Chase, Danny, Sara, Ashley, Kyle, Kendall, Caleb and Devin; seven great-grandchildren, Madison, Evan, Jack, Tyler, Alexander, Jaydon and Bryce; sisters-in-law, Barbara Wiesmann and Leona Miller; and a host of cousins, nieces and nephews.
He was a devout Catholic his entire life and a member of St. Pius X Catholic Church since 1966. In 1951, he joined the Knights of Columbus Catholic fraternal men’s organization. A member of Council 4721, Leroy proudly served as the State Deputy in 2000-2001, and from 2004-2006, served as the 4th Degree’s Oklahoma District Master. His volunteer activities with the Knights included many years working with the Special Olympics Oklahoma and the Center for Family Love in Okarche, Okla.
Leroy was widely known as a man of patience, integrity and honesty. His beginnings were very humble, but he knew that he could improve the life for his family based on hard work, perseverance, and doing what was right. Regarded by friends as one of the finest people they had ever met and a true gentleman in every sense of the word. He will be greatly missed.
