Memorial services for Jimmie Dean Hilton, 66, of Salina, OK, were held Saturday, March 7, 2020 at Johnson Funeral Chapel in Sperry, OK. Mr. Phillip Johnson officiated. Honorary Casket bearers were David Hilton, Stephen Corley, Dennis Hilton, Mike Hilton, Marshall Tyner, Scott Hilton, Dale Coyle, Josh Selvidge and Steve Selvidge.
Dean was born April 15, 1953 in Tulsa, OK to Chester Lee and Norma Ualdine (Tyner) Hilton. He passed away February 29, 2020 in Pryor, OK.
Dean was a welder at Hammco for many years before becoming a welder at QuickWater, where he retired. Dean was a member of the FFL Organization, known as the Fishing For Life Organization. He enjoyed camping, hiking, hunting – the great outdoors in general. Dean also enjoyed loading up and taking road trips. He would pick up trash no matter where he was at, and even had everyone else pick up trash as well. If Dean wasn’t working or at a grandkids sporting event, he was at the lake, working in his garden when he had the time and place or he was yelling, “Slow that golf cart down!” even though he was known to have the fastest car in the Sperry/Skiatook area, A 1956 Chevy Bel-Air. Dean was a Christian and was saved and baptized as a young boy.
He is survived by his wife, Anita Hilton of Salina; daughter, Tammy Corley and husband, Stephen of Sperry; son, David Hilton and wife, Janae of Glenpool; grandchildren, Valorie Corley and Britnie Corley of Sperry, and Haleigh Hilton, Katie Hilton and Christie Hilton of Glenpool; brothers, Butch Tyner and wife, Caprice of Skiatook, Dennis Hilton and wife, Theresa of Skiatook, Mike Hilton and wife, Fern of Sperry, and Scott Hilton of Skiatook; sister, Christina (Hilton) Mullins of Lawton; and a boatload of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Chester and Norma Hilton.
Arrangements and services were entrusted to Johnson Funeral Home, Sperry.
