November 26, 1940 - March 28, 2020
Our lives have been changed forever. We’re heartbroken to lose the patriarch of our family, Paul Dean Haddock, Sr., who left this world to be with our Heavenly Father on March 28, 2020. We’re so grateful for the time and love we shared with him. Paul met the love of his life, Naomi Basham Haddock, in 1958 and they were married September 24, 1961. He is survived by Naomi and their three children Lisa Haddock Blackford, Paula Haddock Adams, and Paul D. Haddock II, their spouses Kris Blackford, James Adams, and Sheila Spradley Haddock, and their grandchildren Kelsey and Robert Blocker, Payton and Alyssa Blackford, Jacob and Samantha Haddock, Jessica Haddock and her fiancé Austin Schroeder, and their great granddaughter, Paisley Blocker. Paul was born November 26, 1940. He was the 7th of 16 children born to parents Raymond A. Haddock and Gladys Stamper Haddock, who preceded him in death along with his brothers and sisters Doris and Glenn Howard, Raymond “Dan” and Elsie Haddock, Perry Haddock, Floyd Haddock, Betty Doll, Phillip Haddock, and Gayla Haddock. He is survived by his brothers and sisters Billy and Jeanne Haddock, Charles Haddock, Larry and Cherrin Haddock, Janie and David Miller, Judy and Darrell Sampson, Dennis and Bobbie Haddock, Peggy and Ken West, Ronnie Haddock, and Rhonda and Roy Sagel, Velma Haddock, Vickie Haddock, Ken Doll, and Modine Haddock, and all of his wonderful nieces and nephews. Paul proudly served in the United States Navy from 1958 to 1962 on the USS Prichett DD 561 Destroyer and was proud to say, “I stood my watch”. He was awarded a US Navy letter of commendation for his “outstanding performance of duty” for helping rescue crew members from a burning fuel tanker on April 5, 1961 in Kaohsiung Harbor, Taiwan. While in the Navy, Paul trained as an electrician, and combined with his natural mechanical ability, this helped prepare him for his 37-year career as a Service Technician with I.B.M. He always had a smile on his face and a fishing pole in his hand. He was a friend to all and truly enjoyed helping anyone in need. He was especially proud of his honorary phone number 1-800-PAPA. Paul was well known for his quick wit and contagious laughter, which shook his whole body. He loved to clown around and tell jokes with his friends over doughnuts and coffee and really enjoyed sharing a good story. Among some of his hobbies he loved restoring hot rods, hunting, fishing, camping and anything in the outdoors, especially with his family. As an avid fisherman, he passed down his love of fishing to his children and grandchildren. Some of his most memorable times were taking the family and great friends fishing. He could recall each trip as if it had happened the day before. Together, Paul and Naomi took their family on many, many camping and fishing adventures. Broken Bow and Quachita and the Colorado Rockies were some of the most memorable. As part of his lifelong passion of classic cars and fishing, Paul was a founding member of Tulsa Roadsters Car Club in 1965 and he was also a member of the T-Town Hookers Bass Club for many years. Paul was also a member of First Baptist Church Broken Arrow. Paul Dean Haddock, Sr. was truly one-of-a-kind and he will never be forgotten because he is always in our hearts. He’s gone fishin’. “Thank you, Dad for all of the love, knowledge, and memories.” - Little Paul Please bring a lawn chair. Memorial Park Cemetery will have two tents set up for us but no chairs.
