Obituary for Robert W. Schritter, Col. USAF Ret.

Robert W. Schritter, Col. USAF retired, age 77, passed peacefully surrounded by his family at the Oklahoma Heart Institute in Tulsa, Oklahoma on January 19, 2015. He was born March 6, 1937 in Manitou, Oklahoma, the first child of Robert and Martha (Sizer) Schritter.

Robert (Bobby) grew up on the Schritter family farm in Tillman County, home of the first Beefmaster cattle producers in Oklahoma. He graduated valedictorian of Manitou High School’s class of ’55. He went on to attend the University of Oklahoma where he met his wife of 54 years, Linda Sue Smith. Linda and Robert spent the next 30 years serving the United States Air Force. He piloted many aircraft, but the B-52 was his favorite. He retired as from the United States Air Force in 1989 and then consulted for defense contractors. He split many of his retirement years between Mary Esther, Florida and Grand Lake in Oklahoma.

While his decorated Air Force career was important, his life as a family man and friend is what defined him. He and Linda had three daughters, Lisa, Mari-Lynn, and Kristin. Family activities often focused on the great outdoors - The Big Yellow Boat, skiing, hunting, fishing, sports, camping, etc. These activities were often shared with the many friends made through the military over the years. These friends span the world and are considered family.

Bob was a “Renaissance Man” and loved to share knowledge gained through his engagement in a myriad of hobbies. Some of these included: astronomy, wood working, photography, bird watching, glider planes, scuba diving, and hunting. He could engage a room for hours with his tales, philosophies, and humorous jokes. He was the world’s best “Grandpaw” to Daniel, Alexandra, Sarah, Jacob, Sophie, Boaz, and Keani. His grandchildren’s lives were greatly enriched and influenced by his presence.

He is survived by his three daughters: Lisa Kaye Schritter-Miley (David Miley), Mari-Lynn Schritter Poskin (David Poskin), and Kristin Diane Schritter; his seven grandchildren: Daniel James Miley, Catherine Alexandra Miley, Sarah McCarroll Fisher, Jacob Riley Fisher, Sophie Elizabeth Fisher, Boaz Bolton Brown, and Keani Schritter Brown; his nieces: Andrea Marie Aragon, Britney Marie and Shirley Marie Salas; sister Carol Marie Salas and several cousins. He is preceded in death by his wife Linda Sue Smith Schritter, sister Shirley Ann Schritter, and niece Carol Ann Salas.
Bob will be greatly missed by all and would want you to remember his best advice, “Don’t take any wooden nickels.”

Funeral services will be at 2:00 pm on Friday January 23, 2015, at Crawford Family Funeral Home, 610 NW 178th, Edmond, OK 73012.
