Carl Coe Obituary

Carl Dean Coe was born in Leadville, Colorado, on March 26, 1954, to Wayne and Lola (Sylvester) Coe. He was a husband to Pam, father to Nikki, Natalie, and Neesa, and “PawPaw” to Andrew, Luke, Emma, Noah, Lola, and Newly Mae. Carl traveled to his heavenly home on January 14, 2024. Funeral services will be held on Friday, January 19 at 1:00 p.m. at First Baptist Church Weatherford.

Carl‘s family lived in Climax, Colorado, where his dad worked in the molybdenum mines until 1960 when the family moved back to Oklahoma. Carl attended Hydro Public School, was active in 4-H, band, junior high basketball, baseball, and FFA. He received the State FFA star farmer award and graduated in 1972 as president of his class. 

On May 30, 1975, Carl married Pam (Brooks) Coe. Carl and Pam initially settled in an old farm house, then 6 months later purchased 5 acres of the family farm and moved to their present location naming it Mound Valley Farm. Between 1977 and 1984, their three daughters Nikki, Natalie, and Neesa were born. The family raised cotton, wheat, milo, and peanuts. In addition to farming, they established a registered Simmental cow-calf operation adding a contracted 600-sow operation through Farmland in the 1990s. The family worked alongside one another in the fields, barns, and in the home, as farm life often goes. 

Carl loved taking the family on many vacations with New Mexico and Colorado snow skiing trips being the family favorites. Carl’s hobbies were helping his daughters show cattle and studying World War II, an interest rooted in his father’s military service.

Carl completed his CDL certification and in 2000 went to work hauling fuel while still maintaining a cow-calf herd and smaller farming operation. Carl took much pride in his fuel hauling duties and worked long hours hauling diesel to the oil rigs in western Oklahoma and the Texas panhandle for 19 years. 

Carl had a strong faith in his Lord and Savior as he surrendered his life to Jesus in his junior high years and rededicated his life in later years. Carl supported the surrounding communities which included Sickles, Ealky, Hydro, and Hinton. He never met a stranger and was always willing and ready to visit and lend a listening ear. Carl also supported the Hydro Public School serving as a school board member for 8 years and served on the Hinton Co-op Board. 

In 2001, 2004, and 2007, the family again grew as wonderful son-in-laws were added. Nikki married Chris Snider and they had Andrew and Luke. Natalie married Kyle Ambrose and they had Emma, Noah, and Lola. Neesa married Nacona Smith, and they had Newly Mae. Carl took great joy in each of his cherished grandkids. He continued the family legacy by taking grandkids along to check cattle, fix fences, and take in the western Oklahoma sunsets every chance he got. Each grandkid came to love his “PawPaw Jokes” and soaked up his vivacious hugs. 

As Carl’s health declined, each family gathering and visit held more meaning. The difficulty of his battle with dementia was balanced by the outpouring of love, care, and time spent with family making memories. Carl’s family would like to thank the staff at Corn Heritage Village for their love and care for him.

Carl's steadfast faith made the final season of his life on earth one that resonated with the bittersweet glory of Christ. Carl breathed his last on January 14, 2024, and then he heard, "Well done, my good and faithful servant."

Carl is survived by his wife, Pam Coe of Hydro, OK, his children, Nikki Snider and husband Chris of Yukon, OK, Natalie Ambrose and husband Kyle of Stillwater, OK, and Neesa Smith and husband Nacona of Hydro, OK, his grandchildren, Andrew and Luke Snider of Yukon, OK, Emma June, Noah, and Lola Ann Ambrose of Stillwater, OK, and Newly Mae Smith of Hydro, OK, his mother-in-law, Mary Ann Brooks of Hydro, OK, his brother, Charles Coe of Bryan, TX, his brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, and their families, nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, other relatives and friends.

Carl was preceded in death by his parents, Wayne and Lola Coe, his father-in-law, Francis Brooks, and his grandparents, Ben and Clara Sylvester and Azzie and Vestal Coe.
