Bill went to be with his Lord on Saturday, Sept. 23, 2006. He was 62.
Born in Tulsa on Sept. 16, 1944 to Buell James “B.J.” and Bertha Lucille (Rutherford) Ogden, Bill was reared and educated in Tulsa and graduated from Will Rogers High School. As a student at Tulsa Technical College, Bill met classmate Carol Baker and both knew immediately that their futures lay together. On Dec. 29, 1964 the two were married. Tulsa was their first home, then Claremore and Las Vegas. After two years in Las Vegas, where Bill worked as a carpet cleaner, the family returned “home” to Claremore. Bill worked for 15 years as plant manager at Anchor Concrete, six years as manager of Mistletoe Express, he was a temporary mail carrier, and was a school bus driver for Claremore Public Schools. Bill found time to be heavily involved in Boy Scouts of America. More than 30 Eagle Scouts were mentored by Bill as they worked to achieve that lofty goal.
Three sons and one daughter blessed the Ogden home, and Bill kept them close, involving his three sons in all his favorite activities — scouting, outdoor activities, four-wheeling, and hunting. As a booster club volunteer, he worked in various concession stands to help raise funds for Claremore High School ’s dance team. He became known as “the concession stand police” because of his careful accounting for each drink cup and every bag of chips.
Lovingly called “Mr. O” by many Claremore students, Boy Scouts and family friends, Bill was known as a character who always had a trick up his sleeve. His yodeling or Donald Duck impressions were guaranteed crowd pleasers. There wasn’t one time that he didn’t make his grandchildren laugh by picking on the waitress’ at various restaurants. Bill attended all of his grandchildren’s events and had a special relationship with each of them and many of their friends.
”Mr. O” or “Pa” is survived by his best friend, wife, Carol, of their home in Claremore; his sons and their wives, Billy and Cathy Ogden of Claremore, Tobby and Janel Ogden of Black Forrest, Colo., and Buddy and Kristi Ogden, of Claremore; ten grandchildren, Bethany, Alex, J.J., Sammi Jo, Kacee, Tyler, Gregory, Meredith, Chris, McKenzie and soon to be born, Cade; his sister, Betty Hickman of Hot Springs, Ark.; his mother-in-law, Minnie Baker, of Claremore; several brother and sister-in-laws, several nieces and nephews and many more who lovingly called him Grandpa or “Pa.”
He was preceded in death by his parents, B.J., and Bertha, daughter, Beth who passed away on Dec. 9, 1967; his sister, Opal; and two nephews, Steven and Tony.
