Will Leonard “Sarge” Breckenridge

Published 11-10-13

ENID, OK — Will Leonard “Sarge” Breckenridge, 78, left this world to be with the Lord Monday, October 28, 2013. Will was residing at Greenbrier Nursing home in Enid Oklahoma at the time of his death.

Born November 24, 1934, in Moline, Illinois, Will joined the United States Army in 1952 and served 19 honorable years and 13 years in an Army Reserve unit. He retired in 1984. While in the Army, he received numerous medals, including the Bronze Star, Commendation Medal, Vietnam Cross of Gallantry and National Defense Service Medal. Will was an explosive ordinance disposal specialist and served three tours in Vietnam.

Will was a sweet “charmer,” with a funny gruff side and quick wit. Anyone who met him took an instant liking to him. Will’s passion was the military, and he loved his military “family” at Vance Air Force Base.  

Will is preceded in death by his mother and father, one brother and two sisters. He is survived by his daughter, Lynda Wilson of Arkansas; his sister, Rose Marie Miller of Omaha, Nebraska; three brothers, Roy Breckenridge, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Harold and Albert Breckenridge, of Omaha, Nebraska.

A private military funeral with full honors will be at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Army Emergency Relief Society. Contact AERC at (866) 878-6378 or donations@aerhq.org.

“Say not in grief ‘He is no More’ but live in thankfulness that ‘He Was.’

God’s fingers touched him, and he slept.”
