Bill Becquart November 20, 1950 – November 13, 2020 At 5:40 pm on Friday, November 13, 2020, Bill Raymond Becquart passed away, only 7 days before his 70th birthday. Bill was born to Victor Becquart and Alice Rutledge Becquart on November 20, 1950 in Oklahoma City. He grew up with an older sister, Betty Becquart Sanders, who he adored teasing out of love. He graduated from Putnam City High School and grew up working in the family business, C & B Auto, which he later ran after the death of his father. He was also the President of the Oklahoma City Ski Club from 1990-1991. He founded the Oklahoma Outdoor Network, being featured in numerous media articles on their behalf. He was very avid about his ambitions and hobbies. He loved the outdoors, camping, backpacking, geocaching, kayaking, skiing, hunting, fishing, scuba diving, just to name a few. He also liked to search for sasquatch with a group of his friends and talk to people on his HAM radio. He was heavily interested in genealogy and learning about his genetics. He loved to teach anyone, who was interested, anything he knew. Standing 6'1", he frequently appeared intimidating, but he was a selfless, gentle soul with a heart of gold. He never wanted to burden anyone and would do anything possible to help others. He deeply loved his family and friends, never letting politics get in the way of what mattered to him most. What I will remember the most though will be his humor. He loved making people laugh and would tease his family into laugher at family gatherings, but teasing his sister (my mom) was his favorite past time. It could be argued he chose to pass on Friday the 13th as one last dark joke, since he rarely took anything in life too seriously (aside from weapons safety). We will always love him and remember the caring and amazing man he was. Here's a toast to my amazing uncle, my mom's amazing brother. We will always love you and will miss you fiercely. He is survived by his sister, Betty Becquart Sanders husband Ben, and her children, Bryan Sanders and Jennifer Jones. He is preceded in death by his father, Victor Becquart, and his mother, Alice Rutledge Becquart.
