James Charlie "Jim" Rott was born on June 12, 1934
at Talala, Oklahoma the son of George and Lillie (Repschlager)
Rott. He was raised in the Oolagah-Talala area and
graduated from Oolagah High School. When he was 19
he was injured in a Hay Baler accident and lost both
his left leg and arm but he was never handicapped.
Tell him he couldn't do something and he would find
a way. He could tie his own shoe, drive a stick
shift car, and do carpentry work having 1 arm & 1
leg never stopped him, just created new challenges.
Dad loved the land, was never happier than when he
was outside-mowing, tending his garden or just
watching the livestock- he was especially looking
forward to the foals this spring. He graduated from
Draughn Business College and went to work for Sun
Oil and retired in 1989 as office manager. He worked
for his son James at 1st Choice Lawn Care from 2002
to 2015 as his Chief Financial Officer and
Secretary-Treasurer of the Corporation. Working for
his son gave him purpose, direction and connection.
He married Earlene Cunningham in September of 1962.
He was a member of the Southside Christian Church in
Pryor and had been attending the Mataoka Baptist
Church. He loved his grandkids. He and Earlene had
been foster parents to over 100 children.
Jim is survived by his wife Earlene of the home, two
sons James E. Rott and his wife Jeroi of Pryor, and
Chadwick E. Rott and his wife Sarah of Bartlesville,
two daughters, Sheri Dawn Kennedy and her husband
Larry of Ochelata and Penny Rott Miller, MS, LPC and
her husband Matthew of Broken Arrow, two brothers,
George Rott of Oolagah and Fred Rott of Pryor, one
sister Lillian Hansen of Noel, Missouri, Seven
grandchildren, Dr. Dawn K Prusator and her husband
Michael, Autum Martin and her husband Cerik, Emalie
Rott, Austin J. Kennedy, Aaron Rott "Jimmy Boy",
Destiny Kennedy and Alexandria Rott.
He was preceded
in death by his parents two sisters and one great
grandson, Castiel Martin.
