Arnold "A.J." Zolicoffer

1948 - 2021

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma


Arnold (“A.J.”) Zolicoffer was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on April 2, 1948.  He gave up this temporary life for an eternal one on April 3, 2021.  A.J. began a 50-year career as a truckdriver, when Buddy Stover hired a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed teenager to drive one of his produce trucks.  How appropriate that he would end his working career helping out in the warehouse at Buddy’s Produce some 55 years later.

A.J. was preceded in death by his father, Arnold Zolicoffer, Sr., mother Luvinea Zolicoffer, and 3 brothers, Albert, Robert, and Paul.  He is survived by his wife of over 40 years Tamala Zolicoffer, his beloved dog Rascal, his sister Gloria (“Lynn”), sons Gene, LaRue, Brian, Brad, A.J. Jr., Michael, and Chance, daughters Linda, Delinda, Andrea, Bridgett, Amanda, and Krystal, and a host of grandchildren and other relatives.

The family would like to thank special friends, Buddy Stover and his late wife Anita, Donald and Tammy Stover, and other co-workers and friends at Buddy’s Produce for their unending love and support and numerous acts of kindness during A.J.’s final years of life.  The family would also like to thank A.J.’s cardiologist and friend, Imran S. Virk M.D., who not only provided A.J. with the best of medical care and treatment for over a decade, but also showered his patient and friend with compassion, respect, and admiration during each of their numerous encounters.

A Memorial Service to honor A.J.’s extraordinary life is being planned by the family.  Details of the service, including date and time, are currently undecided.
