Graveside services for Olive resident, Tom Waites, were held 2:00 p.m. Thursday, December 20, 2018 in the Euchee Valley Memorial Park near Cushing, OK. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to the care of Michael’s Funeral Home of Drumright.

Tom was born in Chicago, Illinois on June 6, 1954 to the late Frank John Waites & Helen Mary (Hodanick) Waites. He passed from this life in Tulsa on December 14, 2018 at the age of 64 years, 6 months, & 8 days. Tom was raised & educated in Chicago. He married Wendy Ann Poppy on March 19, 1993 & they have remained together until his death. Since 1996, they have made Olive their home. Tom was a truck driver & loved riding motorcycles. He was also a beekeeper & always had a smile on his face & a good joke to tell. But his favorite pastime was spending time with his family & eating chocolate covered raisins with his grandkids. He will be greatly missed.

His remaining family includes his WIFE: Wendy of the home; CHILDREN: Emily Higgins & husband Colt of Hallet – Thomas Waites & wife Laurn of Olive; GRANDCHILDREN: Kamber – Sage - & Haylin Higgins; 2 SISTERS: Mariann Laurenson & Karen McKenna, both of California; NEPHEW: Andrew Laurenson of Canada; also other relatives & friends.

Please allow us to express our deepest condolences for your family's loss. We hope that you will find comfort in the real hope that the Bible gives of being reunited with your loved one again. In the Bible at John 5:28, 29 it reads, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.". The Bible there promises that your loved one will come back to life again in the resurrection. (Acts 24:15) The Bible also promises that soon death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3, 4) We encourage you to visit for more information about this wonderful hope.

Wendy, Emily, Tommy (and families), there aren't words to express how sorry we are for your loss. He lives on in memories of lessons taught, warm embraces, words you'll hear that were special to you.oh, and his laugh. He's with you always. We love you all, Jeff and Mary
