Obituary for Elbert Richard McCartney

Elbert Richard McCartney was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on December 7, 1934 to Halton Rubin and Alta Marie McCartney. He passed away Friday morning, September 27, 2019 at the age of 84 years, 9 months.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Halton R. and Alta M. McCartney, his son, Ricky James McCartney, siblings, Jack, Clyde, H.R., Geraldine, Ronald, and Donald and his grandson, William Luis Bruckman.

He is survived by his wife, Betty Jean McCartney, daughter, Linda Marie Martin and husband, Glenn Martin, daughter, Sandra Jean Whitaker and husband, Steve Whitaker, son, Elbert Randal (”Randy”) McCartney, daughter, Janet Kay Bruckman, Eleven grandchildren, seventeen great grandchildren and numerous nephews, nieces, and cousins.

Elbert graduated from Berryhill School and married his high school sweetheart, Betty Jean Owings. They celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary this year.

Elbert always supported his family, working at several local companies, generally with his hands. There were few things he couldn’t figure out mechanically and was generous with his time – helping anyone that asked.

He loved to tell stories and was proud of his family. Through good times and bad, they all knew that he loved them and would do anything for them.

He loved to sing and especially enjoyed the church choir and quartet singing whether it was in the car with Betty and the kids, with his brothers, his grandchildren or church family. His beautiful, deep baritone voice was always welcome with any song.
