Frank Orebaugh Jr.

Frank Orebaugh Jr. A celebration of life memorial and reception for Frank Edward Orebaugh Jr. will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at the Chickasaw Lake Club in Ardmore.
Frank was born Jan. 10, 1942, to Dorothy Pauline (Harrison) and Frank Edward Orebaugh Sr. in Ada. He passed from this life March 7, 2019, at the age of 77, surrounded by his friends and family.
Frank lived his life with a principled devotion to three things: faith, family and country. Most all other conventions were irrelevant to Frank, and his unconventional ways endeared him to many.
Reared in Ada, Frank found his calling to the military early in life and served seven total years in two branches of the armed forces. In the Navy, Frank discovered his love of the water.
In August 1968, Frank married the love of his life, Saundra Kaye Brown, in Ada. They moved in 1970 to Ardmore, where he lived out his devotion to his faith and family.
In his work life, Frank was both a salesman and a craftsman. When he was not working, he spent his time as a fisherman and a fisher of men. He enjoyed many things, but nothing more than spending time with his grandchildren as his years progressed. Recently, the family celebrated the 50th wedding anniversary of Frank and Saundra.
Frank was preceded in death by his parents, Pauline and Frank Orebaugh Sr., and two nephews, Johnny Hoggatt and Shane Norman.
Frank will be forever remembered by his surviving wife, Saundra, and their children; Brandy Orebaugh Agnew and Richard Agnew, of Austin, Texas, Alan Orebaugh and fiancée, Megan Huggins of Norman and Sara Agnew Black and husband, Billy Black, of Ardmore.
"Pawpaw's" infectious laugh and twinkling blue eyes will be remembered forever by his beloved grandchildren: Cruz, Stella and Van Agnew, Ever Orebaugh, Henry Burris, Douglas-Ann Smith, and Joseph and Jessica Black. His sisters Donnetta Hoggatt and her husband, John Wayne, and Nannette Norman and her husband, Richard, along with numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, neighbors and extended family, will miss him intensely.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Cross Timber's Hospice at 207 C St. SE, Ardmore, OK 73401.
