Clifford Toy Staires Jr.

December 04, 1952 - August 29, 2018

Clifford Toy Staires Jr., 65, entered heaven's gates on August 29, 2018, in McAlester.
He was born in Tulsa, on December 4, 1952, to Clifford Staires Sr. and Ruthann Young Staires. He resided in Pittsburg.
Toy's life centered around his family and church. He married the love of his life, Bonnie LuAlma Murphree, on December 22, 1973, and with her celebrated 44 years of marriage. They were blessed with one daughter, Bonnie Sue Staires, whom he was very proud of and loved with all of his heart.
He worked with the maintenance crew at Pittsburg County District 2 for 33 years, retiring in 2014.
Toy enjoyed church, playing with the church band, vacations to Branson, watching wrestling, John Wayne movies, buying and trading guns, and living on the family ranch.
Toy had a kind heart and boundless joy for life. He was a loving and devoted husband and father. He was a selfless friend to all. Toy will be forever missed in the lives of those who loved him.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and two sisters, Francis and Karen.
Toy is survived by his wife; daughter; sister, Juanetta Johnson; brother and sister-in-law, Ron and Sharon Murphree; nephews, nieces, cousins and neighbors, and his church and work families.
A celebration of Toy's life will be at 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 8, at Pittsburg First Baptist Church with Pastor Kenny Morrow officiating.
