Jason Zachary Kale was born in Ardmore, Oklahoma, to Jack D. Kale and Vickie Owens Lander on January 29, 1976. He lived life to the fullest and loved to travel. He took his last flight on April 21,2013, from the Healdton hospital to the gates of Heaven. Services will be at 2 p.m. Thursday, April 25, 2013, at Craddock Funeral Home.

His legacy will live on through the lives of his beautiful children, Mackenzie Paige Kale with her mother, Ashley Pierson of Ardmore, Oklahoma, and Jason Bryant Kale and Grace Ann Kale of San Angelo, Texas, with their mother, Lisa Hadorn. Zac cherished his children and loved them without reservation.

Zac was a licensed Insurance Adjuster and has worked with his father for the last two years in Kale Claim Service. He was an adept Auto Estimator and loved the contact with people he met and offered them comfort when out on a claim. Zac also took pride in his home, painting and fixing everything he could and keeping everything tidy and clean. Zac was also very proud of his Chickasaw heritage.

Zac loved to fish, play golf, ride four-wheelers, and Zac was a great cook as well but his most favorite pastime was being with his family and friends. Many trips were looked forward to and made to San Angelo, Texas, to see the kids there and he loved to see his mom and visit Galveston near her home. There was no greater San Francisco 49'ers fan than Zac.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Tex and Nadine Owens of Healdton, Oklahoma; and his grandfather, Jack C. Kale of Midwest City, Oklahoma. He will be welcomed into Heaven by his brother, Randy Brent Kale; and other aunts, uncles and cousins as well.

He is survived by his mother, Vickie Lander and her husband, Allen Lander of Dickinson, Texas; his father, Jack Kale of Ardmore, Oklahoma; three children; grandmother, Billie Kale of Midwest City, Oklahoma; and brother, Jay Pitts of Ardmore. Zac has a fiancée, Mindy McComber of Wilson, Oklahoma, and he professed openly his love for her on many occasions. She has a daughter, Madison McComber who Zac loved as well.

Honorary pallbearers will be Kevin Hodge, Mikel Ousley, B.J. Clark, Kale Warren, Danny Warren and Mike Watkins.

Friends and family will be welcome for visitation from 6 to 8 this evening at Craddock.

Zac will be sorely missed by his family and friends, a life taken too soon, but the memory of his will live on forever in our hearts. Online condolences may be left at www.craddockfuneralhome.com.
