Billy Haddock

Billy (Bill) Gene Haddock, 92, passed away peacefully on October 18, 2022, in Tulsa, OK.   Bill was born in Bristow Oklahoma on December 4, 1929, to Colonel and Stella Bishop Haddock.  Bill grew up in the Bristow area and that is where he got his start as a Butcher when he was just a teenager.  He eventually moved to Tulsa where he continued that career for over 45 years, retiring from Sipes Grocery Stores in 1995.  Bill married Betsy Bray Baldwin in 1979 and moved to Sapulpa, OK.  Bill and Betsy enjoyed 34 years of marriage.  They achieved their bucket list of visiting all 50 states and Hawaii, traveling the 2 lane Highways and stopping at Antique and craft stores along the route.  Bill indulged Betsy in whatever craft show she wanted to participate in by having a booth and making their own Potpourri.  Betsy had the ideas, but Bill was the “Chef” that made “The Potpourri Lady” potpourri where at some shows they sold more than 1000 bags of the homemade scented dried fruit.  Bill lost his best friend when Betsy passed away in 2014.  Bill was a very generous and compassionate person.  He loved life and just wanted to be with people.  He enjoyed spending time traveling, working in his yard, and visiting family and friends. 

Bill is preceded in death by his wife Betty Haddock, his parents, Colonel and Stella Bishop Haddock and his grandparents Charlie and Emma Bishop of Bristow. 

Bill is survived by Carol Haddock of San Diego, CA, Linda Haddock and husband John Sone, of Austin Texas, Debra Camps and husband Dave of Venice, FL., Beth Teegarden and husband Bret of Nashville, TN, Cynthia Williams and husband Chuck of Tulsa, OK, and Tony Baldwin and finance Teressa Thompson of Sapulpa, OK, 15 Grandchildren and 10 Great Grandchildren. 

The family would like to thank Ascension St. John’s Home Health and Compassus Hospice for their wonderful care during the past 2.5 years.  The family would especially like to thank his caregivers, Janet Munoz, Sheila Russell and Angela Russell for all the attention and care you provided for Bill.  His wish of being able to be at his daughters home instead of a facility would not have been possible without you.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at a later date
