11/14/1952 to 05/01/2005
Rancher, Horseman and Kelpie Breeder, Bill Wingo of Ft. Supply, Oklahoma was ahead of his time. Bill did whatever it took to keep his dogs sound and fit for the job. He's pictured here with Dr. Denise Easterling, veterinarian and AVCA Certified Animal Chiropractor and one of his Kelpies at the 2002 Lone Star Cattle Dog Futurity. Bill and his wife, Katie, were familiar faces at the cattle trials. Bill used his dogs on his ranch and to gather for other ranches. He had some of the old foundation stock.
He leaves behind his beloved wife, daughter and 2 grandsons. Katie will be dispersing some of the dogs in the weeks to come. Condolences, dog inquiries or contributions may be sent to Katie at RR 1 Box 69, Fort Supply 73841.
