Charles Bo Granger

August 28, 1933 — March 14, 2024

Garber, Oklahoma

Charles "Bo" Granger, a man whose hands were as skilled at steering trucks through winding roads of life as they were at building memories with his loved ones, passed away on March 14, 2024, in Garber, Oklahoma. Born on August 28, 1933, in Hugo, Oklahoma, Charles led a life full of hard work, dedication, and boundless love.

 After graduating from Hugo high school in 1953, Charles embarked on a journey that would shape not just his career but also his character. He was Drafted into the U.S. Army, he departed days after graduation to bravely serve during the Korean War, demonstrating his unwavering commitment to his country.

Charles found his calling in the oil and gas industry, where he worked tirelessly for Western Co., Nowsco and Sun Oil Co. from which he retired. His dedication to his work mirrored the steadfast loyalty he showed towards his family. To his wife Betty Jo King Granger, who preceded him in death, he was a loving and devoted husband. Together they built a beautiful family filled with love and laughter.

In addition to his wife, Charles was also reunited in heaven with his father James Albert Granger, mother Kate Ann Strawn Granger, sister Elsie Deen Granger, as well as sister Patricia Baty and her husband Lowell. However, his legacy lives on through those he leaves behind.

Surviving him are his daughters Sharon Hawley (Barry) of Moore, Lisa Grimes of Garber, Diane Dortch (Steven) of Texas; grandchildren Laura Meeks (Tim) of Enid, Gregory Grimes of Kansas, Angela Allison-Wedel (Tony) of Enid, Dustin Allison (Ashley) of TX; Rikki Allison of OK; great-grandchildren Charlie Jo, Kate, Jett, Brooks, Michael, Huston, Nicholas, Olivea, Isaiah; numerous great-great-grandchildren; sister Judy Granger of Hugo; a host of nieces and nephews; and a large extended family.

Beyond his professional accomplishments and military service, Charles was known for his passion for tinkering on motorcycles and cars. His mechanical prowess was unmatched – he could build anything he set his mind to. But perhaps his most cherished role was that of Papaw – a title he held dear and wore with pride.
