Obituary for William Oran "Bill" Hoover

William Oran "Bill" Hoover was born on April 28th, 1943 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He passed away on March 30th, 2018. Bill was a proud, born and raised Westsider living in Oakridge and then Berryhill. He graduated eighth grade from St. Catherine Catholic School in 1957, graduated from Webster high school in 1961, and then went on to a career as an architectural draftsman until 1990. He worked for Solnock and Associates, Builder's Steel and Sun Oil. Bill and his wife Pat opened Soaring Eagle and Hoover's Hollow I.T. until retirement. He loved his wife, his Little White Dove & Momma Girl, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, family and friends with his whole heart.
Bill was always an enthusiastic, creative, and fun person to everyone who knew him. He often joined community serving organizations and encouraged his children and grandchildren to serve with him. He was a lifetime parishioner of St. Catherine Catholic Church and served his church family in many ways. For years he was a member of the Men's club, and later went on to joining the Knights of Columbus. He achieved the rank of Sir Knight of the Fourth Degree, served as the Grand Knight, and was a member of the Honor Guard. He volunteered at the Tulsa Spotlight Theater starting in the 1970's. He volunteered annually at Tulsa Oktoberfest, served on the board of the Westside YMCA in the early 90s, and was always willing to help out with most any charitable event around town if asked. Lastly, learning his family's Choctaw culture became very important to Bill as he took Chahta Anumpa (Choctaw Language) classes with his wife for many years. He enjoyed attending pow-wows and stomp dances with all of his family all over Oklahoma.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Patricia Ann Hoover, eldest son Robert Hoover, daughter-in-law, Carla Raushi, and his father James Oran Hoover. He is survived by his mother Katherine Hoover-Mills, children Timothy and Kari Hoover, Michael Hoover, Christopher and Felicia Hoover, Kimberly and Vida Lyn Hoover and Kristin and David Gentry. He is survived by her grandchildren Morgan and Evan Hoover, Michael (Mo) Hoover II, MichaelRyan and Alyssa Diehl, Buddy Hoover, Kate and Mike Vanderlinden, Robert and Trilby Diehl, MytheAnn (Sissy) Diehl, David Locke, Nicholas Hoover, Aidan Vann, Iysis Rivera, Xandz Hoover, Xavier Hoover, and Jewell Gentry. He is survived by her great-grandchildren Jaydan Diehl, Michael Hoover III, Bailey Evans, Kristin Diehl, Michael Vanderlinden III, Bryson Evans, Arielle Braun, and Leonidas Vanderlinden.
