A memorial service will be held for Bobby Ogle, 54, of Clinton, at 2 p.m. Wednesday in the First Baptist Church.
He died in his Clinton home on or around Monday, July 22, 2019.
Bobby Milton Ogle was born Aug. 19, 1964, to Inza Geraldine “Pepper” (Halford) and Lewis Milton Ogle in Henrietta. He was raised in Henrietta until he was around 12 years old, when he moved to Tulsa.
As a boy, Ogle was hit by a car while chasing a baseball across a highway. He was injured both physically and mentally, and then spent the next three years either in the hospital or in physical therapy. He had to learn to walk and function all over again and had overcome many obstacles in his life.
His family later moved to Stillwater, where he graduated from Stillwater High School in 1984. In 1990 they settled in Clinton.
Ogle worked at the Pop Hicks Restaurant until it burned down. He also volunteered to help many people in Clinton, and had been a volunteer for Opportunities, Inc. for several years.
He was a member of the First Baptist Church and had also attended the Edge Church. He could be seen around town, making friends with whoever he came into contact with or walking someone’s dog. Ogle always had a huge smile on his face while giving a sincere wave.
He was preceded in death by his father, who was killed in Vietnam; and his longtime friend and companion, “Mikie” Driscoll.
Survivors include his mother, of Clinton; a sister, Tracy James of Mangum; a nephew, Tyree James of Clinton; and a niece, Saible Caldwell of Oklahoma City; and his Opportunities, Inc. family.
The service will be officiated by Randy Jones and Chris Fields and under the direction of the Kiesau-Lee Funeral Home.
