ENID — Please join the family of Bill C. Ryel in celebrating his 81 years of life on this earth and his recent passage to meet his Father in heaven on Friday, Jan. 28, 2011.
Memorial service will be 11 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 3, 2011, at First Methodist Church of Cherokee with Pastor Gib Clark officiating. A private family burial will follow under the direction of Goodwin Funeral Home of Cherokee.
Billie Clifton Ryel was the eighth child born to Ralph and Lottie Watson Ryel on July 26, 1929, on the family farm near Aline, Okla.
Bill was united in marriage to Delilah Naugle on May 12, 1949.
He is survived by three daughters, Deanna (Gene ) Davis of Cherokee, Adell Ryel of Cheyenne, Wyo., and Debby (Dennis) Ross of Chelsea, Okla.; his sister, Inez Marshall; seven grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents, six brothers, two sisters, one foster brother, son-in-law, Skipper Coppock, and two granddaughters, Andria and Sarah Coppock.
In caring for his family, he worked in the oil fields, served Alfalfa County as a deputy and undersheriff, and spent more than a decade as owner/operator of the family custom harvest business, which led to opening his machine and repair shop. For the last 20 years Bill ran Dad's Laundry and Trailer Sales" in Kiowa, Kan.
Bill could be depended on in any situation, especially if it included telling a good story. He will be remembered fondly by his family and numerous friends.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be given through Goodwin Funeral Home to either Square Cedar Cemetery Fund or St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
