Jon Houston Patton was born December 15, 1934 in Oklahoma City to Joe & Ramey Patton. He departed this earth May 22, 2020 at his home in Stillwater Oklahoma surrounded by family.

Jon grew up in the OKC & Edmond area. He graduated from Edmond High School in 1952. He went to Oklahoma State University to obtain a degree in Dairy Production. While at OSU, he met his wife Nancy and his passion for leadership blossomed. He was president of Farmhouse Fraternity and was elected to Phi Kappa Phi, Omicron Delta Kappa, Blue Key and Alpha Zeta scholastic.

Jon received a second Lieutenant Commission in the United States Air Force from 1956-1959 as a jet aircraft pilot reaching the rank of Captain and was combat rated as a radar weapons controller.

He completed his D.D.S. from Baylor University in 1963. Jon had a long career in dentistry and served with a passion. He was elected President of the Oklahoma Academy, Oklahoma Society of Dentistry for Children and the Oklahoma Dental Association where he was awarded dentist of the year.

He served on numerous committees and boards such as Chairman of the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce, Stillwater Public Schools Board, Stillwater City Commission, Stillwater Medical Center, Stillwater Public Library, United Way, and the First United Methodist Church. He was in the first class of Leadership Oklahoma in 1987.

Jon’s motto was to always give back and serve. His charitable works are too many to mention but he was very proud of being instrumental in creating many free dental care programs as well as doing mission work by providing dental care abroad in third world countries. He loved supporting kids and helping them pursue their dreams. He established many scholarships and was the first one to donate or be at a fundraiser. He was purposeful and passionate and always took the seat to the right of the spotlight.

Dear Barry and Diane and families, I was sorry to hear of your dad's passing. What a man he was! I enjoyed reading the obituary and learned a few things that I didn't already know. I have such fond memories of working in the office with him and Dad in teenage years! Wow, we learned some good things, didn't we Barry?! I talked with Mother following the service and she told me all about it. I appreciate your parents for the wonderful influence they had on our family from the beginning in Stillwater in 1968. Pretty incredible start-up to hear my parents talk about it and all that your parents did for us. Please know that you've been in my prayers and that I am sending virtual hugs for now. Love, Catherine Coffey Drummond

Jon was a dear friend to many and thankfully the Plank’s were no exception. Nancy and Jon took us under their wing as far as traveling was concerned! He planned many trips for a group of us both inside the US and abroad! We loved their enthusiasm and it was catching! Thanks Jon for your friendship and giving us the love of traveling! You will be missed! Thanks for such wonderful memories!

"Lives of great men remind us
We can build our lives sublime.
And departing leave behind us
Footprints in the sands of time."
Jon left a lot of footprints. Footprints that have been good, both for time and eternity.
You will be missed greatly.
Gene and Virginia Howard
