A Celebration of Life for the immediate family of Jimmy Dean Connolly, age 79, of Enid, will be 2:00 pm, Wednesday, April 29, 2020 in the Garden Chapel of Memorial Park Cemetery. Friends may stop by the funeral home to view Jimmy, sign the guest book, and watch a memorial video of his life from 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm Monday, 8:00 am - 8:00 pm Tuesday, and 8:00 am to 12:00 pm on Wednesday. Friends that would like to attend the graveside service may do so, but they must remain in or just outside of their vehicle. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home.

Jimmy Dean Connolly was born September 6, 1940, in Enid Oklahoma, and went to be with his Savior on April 26, 2020. He was the only child of Earl W. Connolly and Edith Hicks Connolly and grew up on the family farm near Garber and attended Garber Schools. On June 18, 1958 he married the love of his life, Alice Faye Herber. Together they raised 5 children. Jimmy worked at Woodring Airport in Enid, and was the Road Foreman for Garfield County District 2 and retired there. After retiring for just a short period he started a second career as a heavy equipment operator at Gateway Pipeline for several years. Once he decided that traveling the pipeline was getting old, he retired yet again, but that didn’t last long either. He went to work at St Mary’s Hospital as a Lab Courier. Most recently he spent his time at home with Alice. Jimmy was a hard worker, loved to fish, noodle and spend time with his family.

He is survived by his wife Alice, of the home; four daughters and a son; Selena McGuire and husband Jimmy, of Edmond, Ok; Shelly Connolly of Edmond, Ok; Shirley Smith and husband Sam of Enid; Alison Connolly of Garber; and Travis Connolly and wife Julie of Fairmont. He is also survived by 8 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents. He will be missed dearly.

Memorial contributions in Jimmy’s name may be made to the OMRF Heart and Alzheimer’s Divisions or the Enid SPCA with Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home serving as custodian of the funds.

I was so sorry to hear Jimmy passed away! I always liked being at your house Selena, it was eternally busy and full of fun and love. Jimmy lived his life with gusto, loved his kids, I'm sure adored all the grandkids, but most of all he loved his Alice. When the world loses a man like him it leaves a hole in a lot of lives. My love and thoughts are with all of you.

Selena Posted at 01:05pm

Thanks Lynn. I was so sorry to hear that you lost you Precious Daddy the day before. I have great memories of your house too. Your Dad and his Silver Jacket for performances. I wish I could have heard the Pralle brothers perform. It's such a profound feeling of loss when you lose someone so close the you. My love and prayer are also with you and yours.

There's a very special garden
Where the trees of memory grow
Nurtured by the kindness
And concern that good friends show.
The roots are cherished memories
Of good times in the past
The branches tender promises
That souls endure and last.
It's a place of peace and beauty
Where bright new hopes can start
It's memory's lovely garden
That soothes the hurting heart.
