Former Resident David Chisum

David Roy Chisum, a resident of Morris, Oklahoma, passed away on July 30, 2021, at the age of 69. David was born on February 11, 1952, to Milford Roy and Lenora Dean (Dodd) Chisum.

He graduated from Putnam City West High School in 1970. On August 15, 1974, David married Micaela Norris in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Together they had two children, Kara and Matthew.

David graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a major in accounting. He spent many years in the oil and gas industry, retiring in March 2021 from Continental Resources. The family lived in Allen for several years during the early 1980s.

David’s projects were never ending. You could not catch him without a tape measure planning his next woodworking, remodeling, or carpentry project. He also enjoyed tinkering on old cars. David was a fan of the University of Oklahoma Sooners and the Dallas Cowboys.

David was preceded in death by his parents, Milford Chisum and Lenora Barnes; a brother, Paul Chisum; and his father-in-law, Meredith Norris.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 47 years, Micaela (Katie) Chisum; his son, Matthew Chisum; his daughter, Kara Chisum and her husband, Mark Coren; grandchildren, Micah Morris, Zachary Morris, and Aubrey Morris; his siblings, Mark Chisum, Jon Chisum, and Deborah Neifert; his mother-in-law, Marie Norris; sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Michelle and Don Montalbano; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other extended family members and friends.

Graveside services for David will be held at 10:00 AM Thursday, August 5, 2021, at Stroud Cemetery, Stroud, Oklahoma. A Celebration of Life for David will also be held at a later date. His family respectfully requests that social distancing is practiced at his graveside service, and that attendees wear a mask. Services are in the care of Parks Brothers Funeral Service, Stroud, Oklahoma.

David’s final request was for his family, friends and loved ones to be vaccinated against COVID. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you honor his wish.
