Arthur Dansereau

Arthur Joseph Dansereau

1946 – 2023

Arthur Joseph – AJ – Dansereau, 76, of Oklahoma City, Okla. left us to join the peaceful party in heaven July 1. 

Born November 26, 1946 in Amarillo, Texas to Arthur & Bette Dansereau, their family relocated shortly thereafter to Oklahoma City. As a young boy, AJ attended Christ the King Catholic School grades kindergarten through eighth, and went to St. Gregory’s High School in Shawnee, Okla. grades nine through 12, graduating in 1964. In 1972, he began his 38-year career with Southwestern Bell. His work ethic was unparalleled, and he was greatly loved by his crew and colleagues.

AJ is survived by his wife, Jeannie Dansereau of Guthrie, Okla., his two daughters, Jeanelle Dansereau of Edmond, Okla. and Nicole Dansereau of Seattle, his granddaughters, Kaylea Taylor and Lily Taylor – both of Edmond, Okla., his sister, Marguerite Walter of Baton Rouge, La. as well as nieces and nephews throughout the United States.

AJ loved a good martini, connecting and laughing with good friends, photography, and spending time at home with his wife while tending to their home and garden. He was a sucker for a nap on the couch, a good movie, and sweets; his sugar tooth is legendary.

His family reverently remembers most his beautiful blue eyes, his tender heart, his hard work, dedication, dependability, and loyalty, his service to others, his terrible jokes and immense love of laughter, his unique elbows, his kindness to animals, and his lifelong friendships. 

The family has decided to have a private service.

  1. I met AJ early in my career at SWBT. AJ had a great sense of humor and was quick with his wit. A couple of months ago a mutual friend arranged a lunch and AJ was there. He greeted me the same way he always had, with a big smile and his quick wit. One of my earliest memories of working with AJ was him climbing a pole in gaffs and without gloves! Gasp, our safety training required us to wear golves when climbing and to a rookie this was unexpected. But oldtimer or senior AJ spit on his hands and proceeded up the pole and did the required job without hesitation. That may have been the only time I saw AJ “climb” a pole. My condolences to his family.
