William Bradford Tindell was born on April 1, 1940 in Harper County, Oklahoma to James Bradford and Geneva (Davis) Tindell but was raised by Pat and Pauline Graff. Bill was raised in Ft. Supply and graduated from Ft Supply High School in 1958. He was united in marriage to Yvonne Pieratt Pingry on July 14, 1971 in Canadian, Texas. Bill and Yvonne made their home in Ft. Supply for many years before moving to Woodward a couple of years ago.

Bill was the current Pastor of the Roadway Church of Ft. Supply and had been the Minister for several churches in the past including the Good News Church, which he started, the First Baptist Church of Ft. Supply, and the Paruna Church.

Bill had four sons, Toby, Allen, Damon, and Darren from a previous marriage to Judy Thomas. Yvonne had two children, Larry and Linda from a previous marriage to Leon Pingry. Bill and Yvonne always said they were blessed with a wonderful and loving blended family.

Bill was a man with many talents, a carpenter, brick mason, and a heavy equipment operator. His true mission in life was when the Lord called him into the ministry to preach Jesus and people lovingly called him Preacher Bill. Bill was a very loving and fun person to live with. He was a very kind and generous person who loved going out and eating with friends and traveling when possible. He will be missed by all.

He is survived by his wife Yvonne Tindell of the home; children: Toby and wife Kristi of Edmond, Allen and wife Judy of Sharon, Darren and wife Leah of Woodward, Larry and wife Angie of Woodward, Linda and husband Steve of Woodward; 17 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren and two on the way; brother-in-law, Tony Alexander and wife Sue of Buffalo; other relatives and many friends. He was preceded in death by his father, James, his mother Geneva, his other parents, Pat and Pauline Graff, a son, Damon Tindell, son-in-law, Jerry Castor, brother James Herman Tindell, and a brother-in-law, Mickey Alexander.

Memorials may be made to the Roadway Church in Ft. Supply with the funeral home accepting the contributions on behalf of the family.
