Joenathan Stargell II

February 5, 1986 — February 5, 2022

Joenathan Stargell II was born to Valerie (Edwards) Bridgewater and Joenathan Stargell I in Oklahoma City.  He was the second child out of five.  He was the oldest son.  He shared his birthday with his grandmother Wyomia Napoleon Stargell Reed, who passed on 9-11-2021.  They shared a very special bond.

Joenathan was loved by many.  He didn’t meet a stranger.  He attended Shawnee, Tecumseh, and Earlsboro where he graduated.  He played basketball, baseball, and ran track.  People gave him the nickname Little Willie after Baseball Hall of Famer Willie Stargell.  He worked for KFC for a number of years, TDK, Blue Wave Boats, and Grace Fiberglass.  He was dedicated to his work at each place.

He was preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents; his adopted mom Shirley Stargell Nash Edwards; and other aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Joenathan leaves behind to cherish his memory, his daughters, Aaliyah and Divyon Stargell; parents, Valerie Bridgewater (Craig), Joenathan Stargell I, and Lawfton Edwards (adopted dad); siblings, Erica L. Richardson, Terrence D. Stargell, Dominique Z. Pratt, Elijah A. Stargell, Gloria Goudge, and James Nash; nieces, Kassarah Stargell, and Sunni Pratt; nephews, Dylan and Spyder Pratt, and Desriel Stargell; and a host of aunts, uncles and cousins.
