William Marlin Thorpe

June 14, 1946 — December 17, 2022


William "Texas Bill" Thorpe, 76, passed away Saturday, December 17, 2022, at Satanta Long Term Care Unit, Satanta, Kansas.  He was born on June 14, 1946, in Beaver, Oklahoma to Wilbur and Geneva Thorpe.

Bill was a rodeo clown and cowboy entertainer, and he never met a stranger.  His rodeos took him all over the United States.  His trained animals awed children and adults alike.

Bill was preceded in death by his father, Wilbur, and his mother, Geneva, and an infant son.  

He is survived by daughters Sarah, Amanda, and Nacoma and by brothers Francis and Robert Thorpe.

There will be no services as cremation has already taken place.

Robson Funeral Home of Satanta is overseeing the arrangements.
