Edwin L. (Wahoo) Trottingwolf Jr., 81, died Monday. He departed this life from Bartlesville, where he was born and where he and his wife Kay were blessed with 61 years of marriage and many generations of family. A full-blood Cherokee, Wahoo was born April 19, 1938, in rural Bartlesville in Washington County, OK. He is the son of Edwin L. Sr. and Florence “Rachel” (Scullawl) Trottingwolf. Wahoo was raised and completed his education in Ochelata, graduating in 1956. He was employed with Reda Pump, MGM Metal Works, and then became a self-employed sign writer. He loved the Lord and served as pastor of First Baptist Church in Dearing, Kansas, for 10 years. As a young athlete, Wahoo met the love of his life Kay while playing ball one day at the Ochelata baseball field. They were united in marriage on Feb. 15, 1958, just after Valentine’s Day, and made their home in Bartlesville. Their union was blessed with five children. Wahoo had many passions in life. Apart from his family and his faith, he was blessed with God-given talent that grew into a lifelong love for music and singing. Early on, he was part of a singing group Gospel Messengers with his sisters. Later, Wahoo and his children sang together in harmony as the Trottingwolf Singers and every summer they spent two weeks singing all over the Midwest. He also enjoyed trains, particularly model trains, and history. He was very competitive playing ball and golf, and he played to win. Wahoo loved his family and grandchildren attending their many sporting activities to cheer them on.
