1930 - 2018 Obituary Condolences
Dec. 13, 1930 - June 1, 2018 OKLAHOMA CITY Billy Gene Absher passed peacefully into the hands of Our Heavenly Father June 1, 2018. Billy Gene was born Dec. 13, 1930, in Marion, IL to Fred Oscar and Pansey Mae Absher. He was preceded in death by his parents; three siblings; and loving wife of 57 years, Velma Lee Absher. Bill is survived by his two sons, Bill David and Dale Richard Absher, along with their families. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Bill served in the U.S. Air Force as a technical sergeant in Korea for four years. He was a traveling shoe salesman and even continued selling shoes past retirement at the Shoe Gallery. Bill loved playing dominos, the St. Louis Cardinals, and spending time with family and friends. He was an active member of the Village Baptist Church. Bill taught Sunday School for many years and was very involved in the church. His faith was known by all. Bill's greatest gift was instantly connecting with others and making a stranger into a new friend. Bill's quick wit and kind heart will be greatly missed. "Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. We live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord." (2 Corinthians 5:6-8). Memorial service will be held Wednesday, June 6 at 10 a.m. at Village Baptist Church. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be given to: Village Baptist Church, 10600 N. May Ave., Oklahoma City, OK 73120.
