A celebration of life for William Charles "Billy" Braunagel will be Tuesday, April 17, 2012, 11:00 a.m. at St. Mary's Catholic Church with Father Tom Dowdell officiating.

Billy was born November 24, 1952, in Wichita, Kansas, to Charles Lucien "Sam"Braunagel and Patricia "Patsy" Holt. He passed from this life on April 12, 2012, in Ardmore, Oklahoma, at the age of 59. He and Denice Tinsley were married in Santa Fe, New Mexico on May 20, 1989. He has lived in this area since 1995 and was a rancher.

Billy was "one of a kind." He loved nothing more than spending time with his animals; cows, dogs, kittens, you name it. Time for his family came first and then time for helping others. His many dear friends will remember him as a loyal man who always brought them together to share stories of the past in love and laughter. He was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Ardmore.

Billy was preceded in death by his parents "Sam" and "Patsy."

He is survived by his wife, Denice of the home; daughter, Bailey Braunagel of the home; son, Brooks Braunagel of the home; sister, Caren Braunagel; and a host of friends.

Pallbearers will be Curtis Peoples, Jerrid Bonner, Heath Heldermon, Hayden Heldermon, Gregory Grant, and Phil Hesse. Honorary bearers are Jake Hesse, Dave Hesse, Terry Pogue, Noah Snider, Brooks Thompson, Rick Rhodes, Cliff Wiggins, and Michael McGinty.

Family visitation will be Monday evening from 6-7 p.m. at the funeral home.

Memorials may be made to Forever Friends Foster Care and Rescue or your local animal shelter.
