Tod Ferguson

With a dry sense of humor, perennial optimism, and yet sometimes shrouded with a cloud of despair, Tod Ferguson lived his life as a solitary man, yet a man who valued true friendships and his family. Although we do not know whether he walked with faith throughout his entire life, he was comforted by many prayers and scriptures said and read for him during his final journey. After suffering a series of strokes, Frank Tod Ferguson died in peace at Integris Hospice House on June 22, 2023. Tod was born in Oklahoma City and joined his parents Marjorie Ann Walbert Ferguson and Faye Whitfield Ferguson, brother Jon Whitfield Ferguson, and sister Kaye Ferguson (McCullough) as the newest member of the family. He was but 11 months old when his father died at 43 following an accident on the family tennis court in Bush Hills. Tod's 10-year-old brother and 12-year-old sister were left without a father as well. When he was 11 years old, Tod's mother married Richard Camp, who became a welcomed father figure in Tod's life. They shared a special bond that remained in Tod's memory for his lifetime. His portrait of Dick along with that of his father were always displayed on prominent walls in his homes. After the death of Dick Camp, Marjorie married Edwin Deupree, the brother of Dr. Harry Deupree, a very close friend of the Ferguson family. Those families were aligned since college days in the 1930's at Oklahoma City University. They established their homes within the neighborhood of Bush Hills and the activities at the bygone Sportsmans Club. As a science fiction buff since his elementary school days and later at Putnam City High School and Trinity University, eventually his insatiable quest for science and electronics led him to a lifetime of enjoyment and work in a myriad of arenas. He assembled and disassembled automobiles and built computer power systems and sound systems with an expansive knowledge gained from stacks of books, magazines, and collaborations with other like-minded individuals. He relished in readings of WWII history and 20th Century warships and was a movie buff and critic. He often bantered lines from favorite films and the British comedy troupe Monty Python with his good friend Patrick Wilson and his wife Olga. He retired from his company, Control Technology, several years ago, yet always kept his mind whirling about like the intricate wires and penciled technical drawings he mastered as an electrical engineer. Tod was as precise and complex on paper as he was in living his life. He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister and brother-in-law Kaye and John McCullough. He is survived by his brother, Jon Whitfield Ferguson, Chico, Calif. Other survivors include his nephew Cole Ferguson of Oregon, John McCullough, Jr. and his wife Vivian of Arlington, Tex., and his niece Jennifer McCullough Alcock and her husband Todd of Flower Mound, Tex. He also is survived by Cousins Thomas Winston Walbert, Katherine Walbert Walker, Sally Morrison Stringer, Bob Morrison, and Dan Morrison, all of Okla. City, and Sue Morrison Dyke of Boston, MA. He also leaves 4 great nephews and 1 great niece. Memorial services conducted by Rev. Josue Araujo will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 6, 2023, at First United Methodist Church, 131 N. W. 4th St., Okla. City., the historic church of Tod's maternal grandparents and his mother, father, and siblings
