June 9, 1952 - Oct 10, 2012 OKLAHOMA CITY On June 9, 1952, Harold Arthur Loch blessed the lives of Harold R Loch, Jr. and Patsy Jean Loch (Clayton) in San Antonio, Texas. Harold lived most of his 60 years in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, attending Putnam City Schools and Putnam City United Methodist Church. In October of 1969, Harold was victim of an unfortunate car accident and was permanently disabled. Harold struggled to relearn his speech. The social network of the 1970s -- CB Radios -- assisted greatly in this. Harold was known as "Wheelchair." With "Papa & Mama Wheelie" and little sister "Sweet & Sassy," he attended CB "coffee break" meets. In August of 2011, Harold suffered a stroke, and on October 10, 2012, Harold's loving spirit was freed of his mortal bonds. Harold is survived by mother, Pat Clayton; sisters, Donna Eddy, Susan Clayton, and Kelly Mayes; brother, Bob, and sister-in-law, Laura Clayton; nieces, Deannie Heckert and Sara Mayes; nephew, Scott Grant; two great-nieces and one great-nephew. Visitation will be from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, October 16, 2012, at the funeral home. Services will be on October 17, 2012, at 2 p.m. at Bill Merritt Funeral Home, with Interment to follow at 3:30 p.m. at Pleasant Valley Cemetery.
