William "Bill" Ogle passed from this Earth, at the age of 65, on Friday, April 20, 2012, in Franklin.
He was born Aug. 3, 1946, in Corpus Christi, Texas to Harry Edgar and Jean Williams Ogle, who precede him in death.
He is survived by his wife, Susan YaSenka and her children, Leila Heckathorn and Adam Heckathorn; and a brother, Harry (Buddy) Ogle.
He is also survived by his children, Jim and Jon Ogle and their mother, Susan; Dana Ogle and Kristina Ogle Calder and their mother, Cynthia; and Nichole Bartholomew and Victoria and Tabatha Ogle and their mother, Rosaline.
He had one grandchild, Wyatt Calder and two nieces, Gina Thompson and Melissa Ogle.
Bill will also be mourned by his "other families," the Seawolves and his brothers and sisters in Christ.
He attended Texas A&M until he joined the US Navy to serve his country during the Vietnam War. During his time in Vietnam he was assigned to the US Navy Helicopter Attack (Light) Squadron Three Seawolves. Bill piloted helicopters where his bravery and service earned him numerous combat medals including the Distinguished Flying Cross and two Purple Hearts.
Bill was an outgoing man whose apparent wit and intelligence made it possible to have a conversation with anyone. These skills helped him throughout his life including starting a trucking business and later a computer business.
However, it was in his ministry that he felt a real calling. Bill loved his work with the Church of Christ. He was the minister at the Franklin Church of Christ and other churches in Pennsylvania and Ohio.
He always had an open heart and open door to any in need, offering comfort, support, food and even a place to stay.
A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at the Oasis Church, 1601 N. Dustin Ave., Suite B, Farmington, N.M., 87401 with Pastor Randy Joslin officiating.
His final resting place will be at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors
