Jon Phillip Przybylski, 53, was born October 7, 1963, in Crookston, Minnesota, to Ralph and Martha (Ebertowski) Przybylski. Jon passed from this life on Sunday, February 5, 2017, in Enid, Oklahoma, surrounded by his wife, daughter, and son-in-law.
Jon grew up in Argyle, Minnesota. He attended Saint Rose of Lima Catholic Elementary through the sixth grade. Jon graduated from Argyle High School in 1982. Throughout his senior year he also attended Northland Community and Technical College in Thief River Falls, Minnesota. He earned a degree as an auto body technician.
During the summer before his senior year of high school, he traveled to Oklahoma as a custom cutter for Stoltman Farms. While staying in Medford, he met Luann Keith. They kept in touch through letters and running up very large phone bills. Jon moved to Medford, Oklahoma in September of 1984. He began working at Adams Equipment as a painter of farm equipment. Jon and Luann were married on February 23, 1985, in Medford, Oklahoma. Jon began working at the Oklahoma Department of Transportation in December of 1988. After 28 years, he retired on February 1, 2016. Jon and Luann have one daughter, Janelle Nicole, born April of 1991. Jon always expressed how proud he was of his daughter and her accomplishments to whoever was willing to listen.
Jon enjoyed fishing, gardening, golfing, and being outdoors. He was keenly interested in politics and the workings of the political system. He took great pride in his Polish heritage and was able to enjoy a trip to Poland with his sister, Evelyn, during the summer of 2015. Jon’s friends and family knew him as a witty, caring, and helpful man. His presence will be greatly missed by many.
Jon is survived by his wife of nearly 32 years, Luann, of the home; his daughter, Janelle Smith and her husband, Michael of Caldwell, Kansas; his sister, Phyllis Harris and her husband, Ken of Champlin, Minnesota; his sister, Evelyn Eastman of Rancho Mirage, California; his brother, Ralph Przybylski and his wife, Roberta of Roseau, Minnesota; his father and mother-in-law, Alton and Evelyn Keith, his sister-in-law, Telisa McDowell and her husband, Kevin all of Medford, Oklahoma; as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Luann and family~
It is with a heavy heart that I write this sympathy note. "Big Jon," as Ashley called him, was a good person. I know you all loved him dearly. I pray that God wraps his arms and brings everyone close to him during this most difficult time. Please know that I will keep you all in my prayers as you figure out a way to continue your life without him. May God Bless you all. Love you and your family - Sally Bruce
Luann, Janelle,and all the family. I was so saddened to learn of Jon's passing. Please know that I have you all on my heart as you go through this time of sorrow and adjustment. Praying for peace and strength to help you through.
Luann, Janelle and family. My deepest sympathies on Jon's passing. Jon and I grew up together as cousins and since we were only only 9 months apart in age, we were "best cousin friends" in the Ebertowski family. I have some many great memories of being together at family functions, or just visiting at each others houses. Jon was truly a great friend, and even though we didn't see each other as often as I would have liked to in recent years, we could pick up and visit like we would be seeing each other everyday. To me that was always something special. God bless you Luann, Janelle, Phyllis, Evelyn and Ralph and hopefully you find a little happiness in knowing I will miss Jon greatly, and have a heavy heart just thinking about your loss.
