”1973 - 2023”

    Kyle Whitecrow Ollis

    There is No Night Without a Dawning
    No winter without a spring
    And beyond the dark horizon
    Our hearts will once more sing ….
    For those who leave us for a while
    Have only gone away
    Out of a restless, care worn world
    Into a brighter day
      Helen Steiner Rice

      Kyle Whitecrow Ollis departed this life on July 10, 2023. Mr. Ollis was born in Borger, Texas on July 25, 1973 to Jimmy and Sally Dean Whitecrow Ollis.
      Kyle and his mom, “Sal”, moved to Tahlequah, Oklahoma in the early 1980’s before making their home in Miami, Oklahoma.
      Kyle was brought up by his mom, Aunt Joyce and Uncle Bill Perry, along with many extended family members. He was raised with loving kindness in a house where the door was always open and many friends and family flowed through. It laid the foundation for the strong, loving human being he was.
      Kyle attended and graduated from Commerce High School in 1991. He had a tight knit group of friends he considered family - Michael Miller, John Penalosa, Andrea Penalosa, Erica Ellis, Adam Abernathy, Desiree Cline, Zulema Gustaveson, Tamarin Gustaveson, too many others to list.
      Mr. Ollis graduated with his Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Missouri Southern State University and was making plans to pursue his Master’s degree. He was a member of the Seneca-Cayuga and Cherokee Nations. He was a believer in the Longhouse ways, having been raised with his Tribe’s traditions and customs all his life. Kyle worked for many years for the Seneca-Cayuga Nation. The Tribe was lucky to have him.
      Kyle Whitecrow Ollis was preceded in death by his beloved mother, Sally Whitecrow Ollis, and two brothers, Danny Ollis and lil Jim Ollis.
      He is survived by his father, Jimmy Ollis of Borger, Texas, one brother, Keith Ollis and his wife Bobbie of Miami, Oklahoma and many nieces and nephews. He is also survived by a host of cousins who considered him a brother. Also surviving him are his Aunt Linda Jo Whitecrow, also of Miami, and Uncle Mayo Sidney Whitecrow of Tulsa.
      Kyle had a smile that could light up a room, always a kind word, hugs and wicked sense of humor. He was, at his core, a gentle giant. We know he carried all our love with him on his journey home. To say he will be missed just isn’t enough but we take great comfort knowing we have him as an angel on our side. We love you, Kid. See you on the flip side “Sucka”.
      The family is having a wake, celebrating the life of Kyle, at the Ottawa-Peoria Community Building on 8 Tribes Trail in Miami, beginning Tuesday, July 11, 2023. There will be a graveside service at the Seneca-Cayuga Ceremonial Grounds in Basset Grove at 2 pm Thursday, July 13, 2023. Mr. Paul Barton will administer Indian Rites. All friends and family are welcome. Cremation and services provided by Paul Thomas Funeral Home.
