From "The Sapulpa Herald," Saturday, August 14, 2004

Creek County Emergency Management director B.J. Pope has died at the age of 60.

Pope, who was a retired Sapulpa assistant fire chief and director of CCEM for 10 years, died of a heart attack Friday night at St. John Sapulpa. Dana Hudgins, Creek County commissioner for District No. 1, said that the loss of Pope will leave a hole in the county that will not be easy to fill.

"There will always be a bright shining spot -- a testament to who he is and what he is to us," he said.

Pope was born Feb. 2, 1944, and had lived in the Kiefer area his whole life.

"B.J. taught us how to live up to our potential," Hudgins said. "He trained us -- we ran drills to the point we had the confidence we knew what we were doing.

"No matter what the challenge, he pulled us togehter as a unit and we performed greater than the sum of our talents," he said.

Pope also directed the county's safety program, flood plain program, human resources program and created their drug testing program.

"And, he was all around assistant to me," Hudgins said.

He said Pope had "God-given" leadership abilities that are rarely seen today.

"B.J. brought out the best in people," he said.

Hudgins said Pope was reluctant to take the CCEM director's job when first asked.

"He said he just retired and he wasn't looking for a job," he said. "He said he would go home and pray about it."

Hudgins said a few days of prayer passed for both of them and he called Pope and left a message that he had been praying about it and it was time for B.J. to report for duty.

"B.J. had been asking for a sign and he said that was it and he decided he had been called to do the job," Hudgins said. "And, he has been on duty ever since."

He said when Pope started, CCEM was two hand-held radios in an office of the courthouse.

"Slowly over the years, through borrowing and begging, he gave a lot of new life to old equipment through inspired volunteers," he said.

CCEM has more than 100 volunteers who all have extensive training.

"As we stood out there (Friday) looking at all the equipment he said, 'we are far from being where we need to be. It has been a tough assignment'," Hudgins said.

Pope was an organ donar and Hudgins said he wasn't surprised that someone would get a second chance at life because of Pope.

No funeral arrangements have been made yet.

Smith Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

From "The Bakersfield Californian," February 11, 2004
Thank you, Mildred Tatum, for contributing this obituary.

Norma Porwoll . . . our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and sister passed away at home February 9, 2004, following her courageous battle with lung cancer.

Norma was born September 6, 1933, in Bristow, Oklahoma, to Roy and Ollie Christian. She moved to Kern County when she was three years old and attended local schools. She and her husband, Ted, raised their three children in North Hollywood before moving to Lake Tahoe in 1969. Although they moved to Bakersfield in 1984, they continued spending their summers at the lake.

A member of the Hope Christian Church, Norma will be remembered for her great kindness, compassion, honesty and her willingness to help anyone in need. She dearly loved her family. An avid supporter of her grandchildren's activities, Norma attended numerous dance recitals, concerts and games for as long as she was able. She did not allow cancer to consume the joys she found in life and we marveled at her strength. We will forever remember her easy laugh, her beautiful blue eyes, her wisdom and her knack for always finding shortcuts.

Norma is preceded in death by her parents, Roy Christian and Ollie Clayton, her son, David Futch and grandsons, Ron and Jon Mongeau. She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Ted Porwoll, Sr.; daughter, Debra Welch and husband, Bill; son, Ted Porwoll, Jr. and wife, Debbie; 9 grandchildren, Donnie Futch, Tom Butcher, Jeff Raider, Grady and Kendra Trantham, Ted Alyson, Mitchell and Amy Porwoll; 5 great-grandchildren; sisters, Juanita Carter, Mary Lou Jenkins and Carleen Turner; and brother, Bob Christian; and many nieces and nephews.

Services will be held Thursday, February 12, 2004, at 1:30 p.m. in Greenlawn Memorial Chapel, 3700 River Blvd. Pastor Bill Woods will officiate and interment will follow in Greenlawn Memorial Park.
