Lou Bees, of Enid, Oklahoma, passed away Tuesday, March 24, 2020 on what would have been his 85th birthday. He was born March 24, 1935 in Hartwick, Iowa to Fred and Mid (Ostrom) Bees. Lou was raised in Hartwick and graduated from the Hartwick Public Schools with the class of 1953. Following graduation, Lou entered the Army Air Corps in January of 1954. After training at Lackland and Keesler Air Force Bases, he served his country in Morocco as a radio technician, eventually being assigned to what is now known as Vance Air Force Base, retiring after 45 years. He met Sue Spohrer, of Drummond, and they married in December of 1956. To this union two daughters were born. Lou was very active in the Drummond Community serving on the volunteer fire department, and served the community in many capacities. He also raised wheat and cattle on the family farms in the Drummond area. Later in his life he enjoyed country and western dancing and made many life-long friends on and off the dance floor. Lou was honored with “Pit Man of the Year Award” for his keeping his son-in-law’s Micro-Midget in top racing form. His greatest joy in life was becoming a grandpa and a great-grandpa, traveling many miles to be at their activities. He filled his home with items that fostered their creativity and sense of adventure; from building a fort in the cedar trees, to building fun things in the garage, he was an “on-call” grandpa, whenever the grandkids called, he was there.
Lou was preceded in death by his parents, Fred and Mid Bees; sister, Betty Roth; grandson-in-law, Todd Leonard; two great-grandchildren, Blake and Asher Leonard. He is survived by two daughters, Michelle Walther and husband Lee, of Oklahoma City, OK ; Terri Blair, of Enid, OK; three grandchildren, Kyle Walther and wife Aimee, of Moore, OK; Tyler Blair of Edmond, OK; Kim (Walther) Pisano and husband Justin, of Grand Rapids, MI; two great-grandchildren, Liam and Isla Walther, of Moore, OK; and a niece and nephew and their families.
Memorial’s in Lou’s name may be made to the Drummond Volunteer Fire Department with Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home serving as custodian of the funds.
Out of love and safety for the health of our family and friends, the Bees family will save visitation, hugs and personal greetings for a Celebration of Life to be held at a later date.

Your Western Swing Society of The Southwest Dance Family will miss your smiling face on the dance floor. You and Vada Parker were always a joy to watch with your smiles and enthusiasm! Now you will be singing and dancing with God's Angels in heaven. Our deepest sympathy for the family. With Love, Vern Davis and Melba Holly

I did not know him but he was my grandmother Margaret Ostrom Heishman's nephew. Sounds like a great man.
