James Robert Veitch was welcomed into heaven for his final reward on Jan 12, 2018 at the age of 84.  Married to Alice Ann (Gibson) Veitch for 59 years she was waiting for him in heaven.  They had  4 children: Vivian who was also waiting for him in heaven, Brad, Valorie, & Matt. They  blessed James with 10 grandchildren who blessed him with 16 great-grandchildren.  James was a computer programmer when that meant hours at night running “punch cards”.  He taught English at Central State University for a couple of years, and was a paint contractor.  In his 50’s he moved to California to go to seminary and ended up staying there.  He pastored two churches in California one in the “valley” and one in the bay area.  He retired and moved back to Oklahoma to be near family.  He loved to study and talk about the Bible.  Well he like to talk about anything but the Bible was a favorite subject.  He will be missed by many none more so than his family.
