On Friday, November 20, 2020, Jackie Lee Plummer went home to be with his Heavenly Father. Jackie was born October 17, 1950 at home in Vici, Oklahoma with a Church of the First Born midwife to Carol and Buddy Plummer. He was raised up attending Church of the First Born and accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, January 11, 2018.
Jackie grew up in a loving home with his parents and two brothers and two sisters. During elementary school, the family lived in Vici where he enjoyed playing sports, hunting, fishing, and helping on the farm. The family moved to Seiling in the summer of 1965 where Jackie began high school, and was able to play basketball, football, and baseball. Jackies football team won State in 1965-1966.
Jackie married young, right out of high school, and was the proud father of Travis Scott and ten years later, Jamie Diane. He attended Northwestern Oklahoma State University in Alva the first three years and graduated in 1973 with a Bachelors in Zoology/Ornithology and Fish & Wildlife Management from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater.
Jackie was a hard worker his whole career, beginning at the Vici Grocery Store as a young boy. He worked on the family farm and other farms, including Donald Gordons. In order to care for his family after college, he began working in the oilfield where he eventually retired after twenty-five years with Shell Oil.
In 1986, Jackie married Cynthia (Cindy) Shuman. After Cindys graduation from nursing school, Jackie and Cindy and her two children, Michael Edward and Marjorie Ann made their home in West Texas for the next eighteen years. Annual trips back home, of course, to hunt and fish with his best friend Fred Sander, Ivan Gordon, and family. After his mothers sudden death in 1998, Jackie was blessed to retire early and come back to Oklahoma to spend the next six years with his dad before his death in 2008. During the same time period, Jackie and Cindy were able to adopt their granddaughter, Whitney Louise. What purpose and joy this little one brought to Jackie and Cindys life.
After Jackies retirement he enjoyed farming and ranching with a small herd of cattle between Vici, Seiling, Cedardale, and Chester until his health declined since 2010. Special thanks to all those who helped Jackie in the last years, including his brother, Denver and wife, Loretta, sons Travis and Michael, grandchildren, Father-in-law, Lee Hartzell, cousin Jerry Hartzell, friends, Fred Sander and Dean Smart, and many others.
Despite his many health challenges the past ten years, Jackie persevered with a good attitude and supported his family the best he could. He was happier than a (pig in the mud) as long as he had his family around him and could talk on the phone. Give him a channel changer, his favorite recliner, his favorite blanket, and he was happy. He is greatly missed already.
Jackie is survived by his wife Cindy of the home and adopted daughter Whitney Shuman; son Travis Plummer and grandchildren Aiden and Emi; daughter Jamie Kula and husband Mike and grandchildren Regan, Ronan, Easton, and Olivia; daughter Marjorie Shuman, and son Michael Shuman; brother Denver Plummer and wife Loretta; sister Beulah Seidel and husband Bruce; sister Brenda Evans and husband Johnny; and many neices, nephews, and cousins.
Jackie was preceded in death by his parents Carol and Buddy Plummer, his infant brother Troy Dean, and nephew Shannon Seidel. Graveside funeral services will be held Wednesday, November 25, 2020 at 2:00 pm in the Vonton Cemetery. Burial will follow with the Billings Funeral Home in charge of the arrangements.
