William Owen (Bill) Johnstone

Mar 17, 1947 - Feb 25, 2024

location-icon

Oklahoma City, OK

"William Owen (Bill) Johnstone, age 76, of Oklahoma City and Bartlesville, Oklahoma passed away on February 25, 2024. Bill was born in Buena Vista, Texas to Mildred Christine Owen and Leo Haskell Johnstone on Saint Patrick’s Day in 1947. Bill loved: Family, Friends, Finance, Flyfishing, and Bartlesville! At the age of thirteen, Bill’s parents moved the family to this community in Northeastern Oklahoma. Bill loved Bartlesville and felt connected there; perhaps that’s because five generations of Johnstones had called Bartlesville home. Bill thrived during high school where his leadership skills were developed and lifelong friendships were established. In 1965, Bill attended the University of Oklahoma. He pledged Beta Theta PI and again created meaningful and lasting relationships. In 1971, Bill graduated with an MBA and continued with the intention to get a doctorate in Finance. He finished all his coursework but decided he would rather go to work than write his doctoral thesis. Bill’s interest in government and leadership activities was woven throughout his undergraduate education. He was a Beta pledge trainer and served on the Interfraternity Council, the parliamentarian of the University of Oklahoma’s Constitutional Convention for Student Council, and parliamentarian of the National Association of Student Councils and was inducted into Omicron Delta Kappa, a national leadership fraternity. Bill loved his Beta fraternity brothers and celebrated their friendship with dinners several times a year. There, they would regale stories of their pledge ship and catch up on each other’s lives. Bill’s professional life was in banking and finance. He began his career at Fidelity Bank in Oklahoma City and would become President of the Union Bank and Trust Company and the United Oklahoma Bank. In 1985, with banks failing due to the oil slump, Bill and a group of investors bought First City Bank in downtown Oklahoma City. Bill renamed the bank, City Bank, and he remained Chairman of the Board and CEO until he sold the bank to BancFirst in 1995. In 2000 Bill and the CEO of BancFirst, David Rainbolt, started a private equity firm in Oklahoma. Council Oak was born and was the first Merchant Bank in the state. Bill retired from Council Oak in September of 2022 but continued to serve on the board of BancFirst until his death. Community and Civic involvement in Oklahoma City were something Bill cared deeply about. He joined the Oklahoma City Chapter of YPO (Young Presidents Organization) in 1980 and in 1983 a YPO Forum group. His Forum group originally consisted of ten members, all under the age of forty and all CEOs of their companies. Bill would say many times “My YPO Forum group has been the single most important association of my adult life. The trust, support and advice I found there has been unparalleled.” Bills Forum group met once a month for over 30 years and enjoyed a retreat annually. Over the years Bill continued his involvement in the Civic life of Oklahoma City. He was Vice Chairman and served on the executive committee of the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce and was President of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. He was Chairman of the Oklahoma City Chapter of YPO and in 1992, Bill received the Dean A. McGee Award for lifetime achievement for the contributions he made to the development of downtown Oklahoma City. In addition, he served on many civic and nonprofit boards throughout his life in Oklahoma City and later in life, in Bartlesville. In 2004, Bill purchased a ranch in Osage County and strengthened his connection to Bartlesville. He enjoyed taking the grandchildren on three-wheelers around the ranch. His favorite hobby was fly fishing. He used to say, “Trout live in beautiful places”. He took many trips with his fishing buddies to both Cody, Wyoming and Patagonia, Argentina -- catching and releasing many fish. Bill was loved and will be missed by his family. Bill is survived by Ann Johnstone; sister Janie Johnstone of Houston Texas; daughter Megan Haston and husband Greg Haston of Carlsbad, New Mexico; son Paul Johnstone of Chicago, Illinois; stepson Clint Pitzer and wife Jill Pitzer of Oklahoma City; granddaughters Emma Haston and Madeline Haston; step granddaughters Anna Shirley and spouse Elizabeth Shirley, Caroline Pitzer and Sarah Pitzer. In addition, many extended family and friends. Bill was preceded in death by his mother Mildred Christine Owen and father Leo Haskell Johnstone of Bartlesville, Oklahoma; son William Paul Johnstone of Oklahoma City; stepdaughter Elisha Pitzer of Oklahoma City, and stepson Jason Pitzer of Oklahoma City. A Celebration of Bill’s life will be held in the Chapel at Crossings Community Church, 14600 Portland Ave, Oklahoma City, OK, 73134 at 10:30 a.m. on March 5, 2024.

In Lieu of Flowers, the family has requested memorial donations to one of Bill's favorite organizations. Please click here to make a memorial donation to GuideStone or click here to make a memorial donation to the Annie Armostrong Easter Offering William “Bill” E, Tritten, 94, of Oklahoma City, went to be with The Lord on Friday, March 1st, 2024. Bill was born in St. Joseph, Missouri on January 6, 1930, to Herman and Bessie Tritten, the oldest of 3 boys. Bill was raised and attended school in St. Joseph and graduated from Benton HS in 1947. By the time Bill entered High School, WW II was well under way and Bill became the man of the house as his father, an excellent sheet metal worker was moved around the country by the Defense Department building airplanes for the war. After high school, Bill continued to work, adding financial support for his family and then began his college studies in 1949 at Southwest Baptist College. Bill gained his associate degree in 1951 from SBC and continued his studies at California Baptist College where he became a member of their first graduating class in 1954 with a bachelor’s degree in Bible & History. During his college career, Bill began to date a young lady from St. Joseph, often by long distance. On June 20, 1953, Bill married the love of his life, Rose Ann Parrish. Together they shared nearly 62 years of marriage. They were blessed with 3 children, a daughter, Angela, and 2 sons, Stephen, and Philip. Bill was a wonderful husband, father and a great example of a family man. At the age of 18, Bill put his trust in Jesus as his Lord and Savior. About a year later, Bill felt the call from God to enter the ministry. Throughout Bill’s life, he was on a mission to do the Lord’s work. He served as a minister in different capacities across the U.S. Immediately after their marriage, Bill and Rose Ann moved to California for Bill to finish his last year of college. Immediately upon arriving back in California, God opened the door with a small group of 3 families to begin a new church in Monterey Park, CA. The congregation grew into the First Southern Baptist Church of Monterey Park. The church is still an active church today in this suburb of Los Angeles. After 9 years with this church, Bill and his family returned to the St. Joseph area where Bill intended to resume his seminary studies. Raising and supporting his family of 5 resulted in a secular job along with pastoring 2 country churches for several years. Desiring to return to full time ministry, Bill accepted a call to Bethel Baptist Church in Scottsbluff, NE in 1970. During his ministry at Bethel, Bill and Rose Ann were appointed as missionaries with the Southern Baptist Home Mission Board. After approximately 14 years in Scottsbluff, the work with the Home Mission Board led Bill and Rose Ann to relocate to Wichita, KS as Southern Baptist church planters where God used them to start several new churches and influence countless lives. After retirement, Bill and his wife relocated to Oklahoma City, to be near family in 1999. He became a member at Southern Hills Baptist Church in South Oklahoma City. Not content to be on the sidelines, Bill and Rose became involved with the group from Southern Hills that was beginning a new church a few miles South of their primary location. Bill will always be remembered for his zeal to share the Gospel, his infectious smile, and his chuckle at the end of each sentence as he spoke. He loved to share stories with family and friends, and it didn’t bother him a bit if he’d shared it before. Bill was preceded in death by his Parents, Herman, and Bessie Tritten; His loving wife, Rose Ann; His daughter, Angela (Angee) and son in law Joseph Warfield; Brother, Ernest; Brother, Don; Several brother and sister in laws. He leaves cherished memories with his Son, Steve Tritten and wife Brenda; Son, Phil Tritten and wife Suzy; Grandchildren: Alicia Thompson, Brian Warfield & wife Misty, Amanda Radovcic & husband, Michael, Rebecca Walker & husband Zack, Mollie Brewer & husband Andrew, Geoffrey Tritten & wife, Lacy; Stephen Tritten & wife, Jessica; 16 great grandchildren; as well as loving extended family & friends.
