J. C. VanSchuyver
J. C. VanSchuyver, a lifelong resident of Grady County, died in an Oklahoma City hospital on August 15, 2017. He was born on November 13, 1928, the seventh and youngest child of Floyd and Bertha VanSchuyver. Of his seven siblings, only one remains: his sister, Golda M. Bogle, of Yukon, OK.
J. C. and his wife Billye Moatt VanSchuyver have lived on their Grady County farm for over 50 years, while both pursued other careers. J. C. became a computer specialist in the late 50s and early 60s when computers were new in the world of industry. He worked for Western Electric/AT&T until his retirement in 1989 to become a full-time farmer.
J. C. graduated from Amber High School in 1947. He received his bachelor's degree from East Central University, Edmond, OK. He served in the United States Army during the Korean Conflict.
Of all his pursuits, J. C. loved the farm the best. He was a true husband of the earth. He was a man of honesty, integrity, compassion, and quiet dignity.
J. C. is survived by his wife Billye, his son, Mark and wife Dessa, of Lawrenceville, GA, and son Drue and his wife, Lisa, of Grady County. He has four grandchildren, five step-grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren.
There will be no services. The family will celebrate his life privately.
