James "Jim" Nimerick, Jr. Obituary

James “Jim” Lawrence Nimerick, Jr., a spirited and adventurous man, was called to his heavenly home on November 24, 2023, at the age of 83, in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Born in Pawnee, Oklahoma on June 23, 1940, he was a steadfast resident of Oklahoma.

Jim is survived by his loving wife of 23 years, Donna (Faught) Nimerick. He was a proud father to his daughters, Levina Maswadeh and husband Abdel and Jaime Nimerick and fiancé Jeremy Meador, and a doting grandfather to his nine grandchildren Mohammed and wife Laila, Eyad, Zeyad, Rayanne, and Ayahh Maswadeh, Corban and Keira Askew, Caden and Cody Norvel, 4 bonus grandchildren Logan, Lindsay, Lincoln, and Lillie Meador and two great-grandchildren Ember and Easton Seacat. The countless joyful moments and deep bonds he shared with his family were the essence of his life. He was predeceased by his father, Bill Nimerick, mother, Elma (Sneed) Nimerick, son Brian Nimerick, and siblings Shirley, Elton, and Kenneth Nimerick.

Jim's accomplishments were wide-ranging. He received his foundational education at Star A Star School and graduated from Pawnee High School in 1959. His call to serve led him to the Army National Guard for eight years, followed by a distinguished 23-year tenure at the United States Air Force. After retiring from the Air Force, he brought his valuable experience to the IT Department at OneOK, where he worked diligently for another 23 years.

Travel, family, and his church were among his most cherished interests. His adventurous spirit was evident in his love of travel, and he took immense pride in his home's bountiful garden of tomatoes and okra. His canine companion, Daisy, never failed to put a smile on his face. A faithful servant of God, he shared rich bonds with the community at Aspen Park Baptist Church in Broken Arrow.

Jim's life was a testament to his spirited and adventurous disposition. His life was full, his legacy powerful, and his spirit forever etched in the hearts of his loved ones.

A service celebrating Jim's life will be held at 10:30 AM on Wednesday, November 28, 2023, at Aspen Park Baptist Church in Broken Arrow, OK, with Pastor Cameron Whaley officiating.
