Olaf James Seaton
Olaf James Seaton, age 75, son of the late Olaf (Bud) James Sr. and Estelle Coon Seaton was born January 23, 1944 in Maud, Oklahoma. He attended Maud and Noble schools while spending his free time hunting, fishing, racing motorcycles with friends, and spending time at the farm with grandpa Johnston.

He was united in holy matrimony to Shirlene Mae Johnston in July of 1964. Through this union were born their two daughters Shirley Dawn and Sherri Mae, their two biggest blessings.

After his schooling, Olaf, "Big O", joined his father in the family masonry business and continued to become a master bricklayer and company partner and owner. He was a Christian man who enjoyed spending time in his workshop at home building wooden furniture, glass objects, and wooden toys his grandkids and great grandsons still enjoy today. Olaf was an avid fan of cowboy western shows and spending time with his great grandsons. As a result of his gentle and caring personality he was truly loved by many, and his influence will forever remain in the lives of all who knew him.

Olaf peacefully departed his earthly life Sunday, January 19, 2020 surrounded by his loved ones in Norman, Oklahoma. He was preceded in death by his parents Olaf and Estelle Seaton, his sister Patricia and brother Dalton, as well as his extended family and kin Shirley and Lorene Johnston, Herb and Frances Nickell, and Kenneth Harris.

He was cared for beyond measure and will be cherished forever in the life of his wife of 55 years Shirlene Seaton; daughters Shirley Harris joined by James Barnhill, and Sherri Hunt and husband Sam Hunt; sister-in-law Jean Kobilan and husband Al Kobilan; grandchildren Shawnie Hunt, Dayton Harris, Bailey Lozano and husband Christopher Lozano, and Shane Hunt; great grandsons Carter Dean Harris and Bennett James Hunt; along with a host of devoted nieces, nephews, cousins, and adoring friends.

There will be a public viewing on Tuesday January 21st from 6-8 p.m. at Primrose Funeral Service, Norman, OK. Services will be held 10 a.m. Wednesday, January 22 in Norman at Primrose Funeral Service followed by a graveside service at Blackburn Cemetery.
