George Thomas Bickell passed away unexpectedly at his home in Perkins. He was 85. Services have been entrusted to the care of Dighton-Marler Funeral Home of Stillwater.
George was born December 27, 1934 in Goodnight, Oklahoma to Asa and Mabel (Ridpath) Bickell. He grew up in the Tryon/Perkins area most of his life. He graduated from Tryon High School in 1953.

He was very supportive and involved with the Perkins & Cushing VFW and the American Legion. He loved college sports especially OU football.
