Claudine "Hoss" Horace England

January 3, 1935 — April 2, 2016

Claudine Horace “Hoss” England was born on January 3, 1935 in Lindsay, Oklahoma to Claud and Frances (Henry) England. He went to be with the Lord on April 2, 2016 at the age of 81 years. He went to school in the Lindsay area and then spent the next 40 years working in the oil and gas industry in Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Texas starting out as a young roustabout and working his way up to the position of tool pusher on an offshore drilling ship off the coast of Gabon, Africa for Storm Drilling and ended his career as a drilling consultant. He was a veteran and served two years in the Army and while stationed in Illinois, he met and married Shirley Widrlechner of Chicago. They have three children, Linda, Becky, and Richard. After his “oil patch” years he bought an orchard in Edinburg, Texas and raised grapefruits and oranges, then decided to move home to Lindsay to retire. Being the hard worker he always was, he never slowed down. He raised cattle and ostriches and always planted a huge vegetable garden. He was a member of the First Baptist Church and the American Legion Post 23 Ball Smith in Lindsay. He enjoyed fishing, watching old westerns, attending old time singings at Bradley and being with family and friends. He had an extra special relationship with his siblings and talked to each of them every day and sometimes twice a day. He was especially proud of his kids and their families. Hoss, as he was called, had many roles in his life: son, brother, husband, father, and friend; however, his favorite role was that of “PaPaw”. He has nine grandchildren: Michelle Cantu, Nichole Campbell, Matt and Meagan Loughrey, Jessica, Jacob, Victoria, Katherine, and Connor England; and five great grandchildren: Brody , Bryce, Brayden, and Brenna Cantu and Kase Loughrey. He is survived by his wife, Shirley; daughter, Linda Wendland of San Antonio, Texas; daughter, Becky Loughrey and husband Tom of Weatherford, Texas; son, Richard England and wife Linda of McKinney, Texas; his grandchildren and great grandchildren; his sister, Leora Cooper; brother, Jim England and his wife Barbara, all of Lindsay, Oklahoma along with a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents; his sisters, Opal and Lavora; his brothers, Arbee, Gerald, and Willie England. The family would like to thank everyone at the VA Hospital and the Veteran’s Center in Sulphur, Oklahoma for all the loving care and service they have provided over the past several years. Graveside services will be held at 10:00 am, Thursday, April 7, 2016 in the Green Hill Cemetery, Lindsay, OK with Bro. Bill Love and Bro. Randy Allen officiating and burial under the direction of John W. Williams of Winans Funeral Home, Maysville, OK. Words of comfort may be sent to the family at www.winansfuneralhome.com
