JOE PASKVAN Obituary
Nov. 17, 1936 - March 31, 2018 NEW CANEY, TX Joe Alan PaskVan Jr. went home to Heaven March 31, 2018. He was born to Eloise and the Rev. Joseph Lincoln Kline PaskVan Nov. 17, 1936, in Oklahoma City, OK. He graduated from Midwest City High School in 1954. During his junior year at OU, he joined the U.S. Marine Corps and completed his service in 1959, and as all Marines know, once a Marine always a Marine. Semper Fi! Following his Marine Corps service, Joe completed his BA at Central State College with a major in speech and a minor in drama. He went to work in the computer room for Western Electric in Oklahoma City and received his MBA from OCU in 1965. Joe enjoyed a successful career in information systems design and management working for companies such as Boeing Aircraft Co., Mobil International, the State of Oklahoma and Kaiser Permanente. Joe was a unique man, often imposing and always dryly mischievous. He loved philosophical debate, often playing devil's advocate, apparently just to get a rise out of family and friends, but was in fact, teaching the value of understanding what you believe and why you believe it. He loved his family, dogs and Solitaire. Joe is survived by his wife, Shay PaskVan, of New Caney, TX; son, Joseph Kline PaskVan II and his wife Jennifer, of Atlanta, GA; daughter, Jill Kolleen PaskVan Flowers, of Oklahoma City; stepson, Chris Rouk and his wife Jeanne, of Irvine, CA; grandchildren, Amanda and husband Jeff Grogan, Daniel, Joseph III "Trey," Keiryn, Joshua, Julia, Austin and wife Sydney, and Lynsie; and great-grandchildren, Makenna, Madilyn, Elliette, and Ezekial. Services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, April 9, 2018, at Memorial Park Cemetery, Oklahoma City, at the PaskVan family plot. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Joe's name are requested to the Ovarian Cancer Research Department at MD Anderson (www.mdanderson.org/gifts). www.rosewood.cc www.mdanderson.org/gifts
