Johnny Loyd Cupit


Johnny Loyd Cupit passed away Monday, June 23, 2014. 

Born Feb. 10, 1943, in Fort Worth to John “Loyd” and Juanita Cupit, Johnny was an only child. 

Johnny obtained his Master’s Degree in Health Science and worked in hospital administration for Sterling Health Care. He was a member of Calvary Baptist Church. Johnny was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan, through thick or thin. There was no talking or calling Johnny when the Cowboys played. Friends at church spent six months trying to get Johnny to meet Marlene Wasden; as fate would allow, they bumped into each other walking into church one day. They had lunch that afternoon and the next day Johnny asked if they could date exclusively. They married May 1, 1986.  When the grandkids began calling Marlene “Nana,” they asked Johnny what they should call him and he replied “Ba.”  

Johnny leaves behind his loving wife, Marlene; daughters, Michelle Apperson, and Dr. Kristi Martin; sons, Todd Cupit and wife, Audra, Kurt Koenig and wife, Kathy; grandchildren, Nick Apperson, Brittany Apperson, Tyler Cupit, Trenton Cupit, Riley Hubert, Cabe Cupit, Asa Cupit, Stephanie Koenig, Chelsea Koenig, Rachel Haley and husband, Peyton, David Martin and wife, Amy; great grandchildren Madison, Adilyn and Brayden; and mother, Juanita Cupit. 

Johnny was preceded in death by his father, Loyd Cupit, and son in-laws, Lewis Apperson and David Martin.

A visitation will be Thursday, June 26, 2014, at Galbreaith Pickard Funeral Chapel from 6-8 p.m. A graveside service will be Friday June 27, 2014 at 9 a.m. at Central Cemetery in Weatherford.
