We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Havenbrook Funeral Home
On Friday December 17 2021, Jerome Alphonse Syoen of Enid, OK passed
away in Oklahoma City. He was 74 years old.
After growing up in Arlington Heights, IL, Jerry served in the Marine
Corps for 3 years, stringing communications lines in Vietnam for 13
months. He later became a moldmaker, a father, an amateur boxer, a
golfer, and a relentlessly mediocre poker player. Above all, he was –
as many, many people have said – a character: prickly and fiercely
independent and totally unique. But he was also smart, and
sentimental; and he loved – and was loved – deeply. He will be missed.
The family will hold a memorial service in the spring of 2022. In lieu
of flowers, please make a donation in Jerry’s honor to Meals on
Wheels, Toys for Tots, a local hospice, or PBS.
