Floyd Andrew Hathcoat was taken from us on August 4th, 2016 in Henryetta, OK, at the age of 73. He was born on March 3rd, 1943 in Tahlequah, OK, the son of John “Smoke” and Willie Mae (Post) Hathcoat. He attended school in Tahlequah, and afterward began his working career as a carpenter. In 1959, he married Bernice Ann Ballard, and they were blessed with three children, Floyd “Andy”, Sandra “Sister”, and Wesley ”Checker”. He was later blessed with a daughter, Amanda White. Floyd later married Linda Alberty Weavel, who preceded him in death. Floyd enlisted in the US Army and proudly served his country in Germany from 1967 until his honorable discharge in 1969. Floyd returned to green country and continued his work as a carpenter. He was constantly demonstrating his work ethic. The sun seldom beat him out of bed, he worked with his hands, creating beauty and building dreams, and then off to relax when the sun went down. He was a great one to show the sunny side, quick to smile and share a joke. His standards were set high, he was honest, trustworthy and proud of his country. He expected no less of his family and friends. He enjoyed fishing on the river and made some cherished memories with his kids during their younger years. He retired and moved to Henryetta where he found peace in ranching. He kept company with his cattle, “my old horse”, goats, a donkey and of course, his dogs. He had the kind of neighbors that were more like family. They were happy to see each other and share a cup of coffee or a cold beer. They didn’t need to ask for assistance, they knew each other’s needs before one could ask. He was the friend you could rely on, to be there when needed and staying until the job was done. He loved his children and grandchildren, and was always proud of their accomplishments. He always made room on his shelves to show off their latest artistic offering, and they always made him smile. He was a man that enjoyed the simple things in life, and shared them selflessly with everyone around him. With his final sunset, comes a void that will never be filled.

Floyd has gone home to be with his mother, father, his brother John Lee, his wife Linda, one daughter-in-law Bonnie Sue Hathcoat, and his grandparents, Andrew and Parlee Post and John and Susanna Hathcoat.

Those left to cherish his memory include his children, Floyd Andrew ”Andy” Hathcoat Jr. of Blackwell, OK; Sandra Hathcoat of Tahlequah, OK; Wesley “Checker” Hathcoat of Tahlequah, OK; and Mandy White of Tahlequah, OK. He leaves his three sisters, Callie Ann and Billie Sue Hathcoat of Park Hill, OK, and Maudie Mae Cascale and husband Barry of Tahlequah, OK. Floyd leaves eight grandchildren, Heather Baker, Skylar Green, John Hathcoat, Rhea Hathcoat, Jayden Younger, Nevaeh Younger, Meadow White and Journie White, and one great grandchild, Avrie Baker. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of very special friends and neighbors. The family would like to express their gratitude to very special friends, Jesse Dudley and Mark LeMond, who through their selfless acts of kindness, help, and understanding, have aided Floyd’s family immeasurably in this time of need and confusion.

Well I don't know where to start. Floyd an Linda was prob the best two people u could of ever met. When me an my family moved to Oklahoma in 1998 they took us in just like we were there own. We spent many thanksgivings an Christmas at there place on the mountain. Always thought of them like the grandparents we never had. I was really hoping i could make it but am out of state working an just didn't work out as planned. So sorry I couldn't be there.

My sincerest condolences to the wonderful Hathcoat family. I did not know Floyd, but from reading about him, he was quite something special and will be dearly missed by all. May God bless you and give you peace knowing that he has gone to a better place. Please give yourselves time to grieve in your own time because each person is different. By the love you gave him when he was still here, he knows he was very dear to you all.

I remember Floyd when we attended Owen School together. He was always laughing and full of fun, giving my pigtails a yank as he passed. What a wonderful soul, so full of life. My heart goes out to the family as I knew most of the kids, either from school, or riding the bus.
