Billy "Bill" Leon Aldridge passed away August 4, 2018 in Oklahoma City.  Billy was born to James William and Eula Aldridge in Duncan, OK on July 13, 1942.

Billy attended Duncan Public Schools and graduated in 1961.  He then attended Central State College for two years.  Bill served in the U.S. Army Reserves.

Billy spent several years "bulldoggin" on the rodeo circuit and also spent some time hauling cattle cross country.  He spent 20 years as a regional driver for Scrivner Inc. and then as a cross country driver for several other companies.  Bill spent his work life getting to know people and enjoying the ride.

Bill loved to travel and see the sights.  His travels took him through 46 of our 50 states.  Bill was an avid golfer, a game which he taught his daughter to love as well.  He was not shy in supporting the University of Oklahoma and enjoyed cheering on the crimson and cream.  Bill never met a stranger and had a joke or story to share with everyone he saw.

Always remember Billie as a fun loving guy. I knew him since grade school at Will Rogers. We will miss him at reunions.
