Obituary for Jackie Dean Amburn

Jackie Dean Amburn, 84, known affectionately as "Boppy" or "Papa" to his grandchildren, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, October 2, 2021 in Hollis, Oklahoma.

Jackie was born on October 24, 1936, in Hollis, Ok. He was the youngest of three children born to the late Lester James Amburn and Nannie Jane Jones Watkins. Jackie married the love of his life, Janie Brown, on April 29, 1955, Together they were blessed with three daughters. He was a loved father who always took care of his family and did his best to teach and guide them, a loving grandfather and "Great"-grandfather to many.

Jackie is the epitome of a Renaissance man. His true passion for cars began with a blue 1947 Willis jeep that his dad bought him for his 13th birthday and continued through the years until he acquired a 1957 Chevy pickup, affectionately known as 'Ole Blue". One of his first jobs was at the John Deer dealership, where he worked with his future father-in-law, C.H. Brown in the same building that would eventually become Amburn's Auto Center. He loved doing anything that kept his hands busy and his mind sharp. Jackie's strong faith kept him grounded throughout his life.

Jackie enjoyed spending quality time with is wife of 66 years, Janie, their daughters, and their families. He was a strong patriarch of his family, a good friend to all, and a man who would give his shirt for a friend.

Jackie was preceded in death by his parents, Lester James Amburn and Nannie Jane Jones Watkins; his sister, Peggy Rose Amburn; his brother, Gerald "Jerry" Max Amburn; and a great-grandson, Bryson Noah Kemp.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Janie Amburn; his daughters, Nikki Jane and husband, Jim Hess of Bemidji, MN; Rudi Kaye and husband, Wayne Matthews of Canyon, TX; Jani Dean and husband, Blair Hays of Little Rock, AR; grandchildren: Brooke Irwin (Terrence); Tiffany Kemp (Billy); Whitni Hays; Riley Hays (Sarah); Jackie Gamboni (Ben); Chris Matthews (Katherine); Jayne Ann Hess; Skiler Hays (Lauren); great- grandchildren; Kilee Kemp, Bentli Irwin, Berklee Kemp, Hadley Hays, Thatcher Irwin, Hollis Hays and Hutchison Hays.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, October 7, 2021 from 12:00 pm to 2pm at the Hollis First Baptist Church with a Celebration of Life service directly following at the First Baptist Church, located at 201 E. Jones Street in Hollis, Ok. Interment will be at the Fairmount Cemetery.
