Brett Michael Blasdel
A Cowboy and a Gentleman

June 30, 1949 – May 14, 2018

 

Brett Blasdel was a lover of life and all its goodness. His remarkable path was guided by quiet kindness, optimism, honor, and most of all his love of family.

 

A compassionate man, he had a creative spirit and an incredible mind. Brett appreciated nature, philosophy, music, and fine Angus cattle.


Throughout his twenty-five-year career as a stockbroker, Brett’s heartfelt dream was to start a family, move to the country, and become a cattleman. He met his beloved wife, Suzy, in Chicago during a New Year’s Eve blizzard. Legend has it that she was drawn to the only cowboy hat in the room. It wasn’t long before two became four, and the family ventured south.


Moving to Poteau, Oklahoma in 2000, Brett left the brokerage business for greener pastures. Over the years he created his personal paradise out on the ranch and delighted in sharing it with his friends and family.


He was preceded in death by his wife, Suzy, and his father, Bill Blasdel. Brett will be sorely missed by his children Jake and Nina, his mother Lois, his brother Mark, and vast numbers of friends and family.


There will be a memorial service at 3 pm, Saturday, May 19, 2018, at the First United Methodist Church, Poteau, OK.
