Charles Lynn Lormand

Charles Lynn Lormand passed away December 10, 2020 at Integris Baptist Medical Center in Oklahoma City with his wife and daughter by his side. He was 77. He fought a very tough and brave two week battle against Covid-19.Charles was born on August 28, 1943 in Kaplan, Louisiana to John Foster and Eva Mouton Lormand. He was a 1961 graduate of Kaplan High School, where he excelled in sports, even holding the record in the 100 yard dash for many years. He studied at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (formerly USL) and McNeese State University before embarking on a career as a drilling engineer. Charles was always intellectually curious and adventurous. His drilling work took him to all parts of the globe. It was during an assignment in Cairo, Egypt that the American oilman caught a glimpse of a beautiful young German stewardess, named Ines, at the hotel pool. After a whirlwind romance, they were married in August of 1974 and honeymooned on Safari in Africa. Charles and Ines loved traveling the world together and learning about different cultures. They had adventures most could only dream of, visiting every continent except Antarctica. They welcomed their only child, Alix, in 1977 and finally settled back home in Lafayette, LA to raise their family.Charles Lormand truly never met a stranger. He took genuine interest in everyone he came into contact with, from the guys at the pro-shop to the clerks that he met at the supermarket. He knew everyone's life history. He was one of a kind, a true Cajun and a southern gentleman. He was a golf enthusiast, a lover of any and all sports, an avid reader and one of the biggest fans of the show Jeopardy you could ever imagine.In 2012, Charles and Ines retired to Oklahoma City to be near their daughter and grandchildren. Affectionately known as "Poppy" to his grandkids and all of their friends, Charles was a fixture at the ballparks and fields around town for the last 10 years. He never missed a chance to cheer on his grandchildren and their friends at each and every sport and activity. He loved being a grandfather and enjoyed every moment that he spent with his precious Claire and Scottie.If not at the ballpark, you could find Charles at the golf course or the pro-shop at Quail Creek Golf and Country Club. He loved the game of golf and being out on the course on a beautiful day. Even when his health declined, he enjoyed getting out and riding around with the guys and watching the young golfers learning the game. He and Ines were fortunate to have a wonderful group of friends at Quail Creek with whom Charles loved spending time.Charles was preceded in death by his parents and in-laws, Herman and Margot Konig. He is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Ines, his daughter Alix Lormand Samara and her husband Dr. Shea Samara and his beloved grandchildren, Claire and Scottie Samara. He is also survived by his sisters, Harriet Touchet and husband Cullen of Kaplan, La., Bonnie Vincent and husband Greg of McKinney, TX, and by his nieces and nephews: Chadd and Suzanne Touchet and daughters Caroline and Lauren of Kaplan, LA, Charles and Summer Vincent and children Eva and Landry of Dallas, TX and Christine and Flavio Rodrigues and their children Luca and Sofia of Walnut Creek, CA.The family would like to extend our thanks to the amazing nurses and doctors on the Covid floor at Integris Baptist Medical Center who took such good care of Charles in his final days, particularly his nurse Brenna Stanley, who was with us until the end. We would also like to thank Dr. Michael Holzer, Dr. Preethi Krishnan and Dr. Luke Cunningham for all that they have done for Charles in the last few years.Due to our concern for the health and safety of others during this pandemic, the family will only be welcoming visitors for a brief celebration of Charles's life outside, on the patio at Quail Creek Golf and Country Club at 3pm on Sunday, December 20, 2020.
