Bryan Lee ‘Cutter’ Gropp passed away on Monday, Oct. 23, 2017, in Fresno, Calif. at the age of 59 in the arms of his wife, Jeni.
Bryan was born on January 8, 1958 in Torrance, Calif. where he was raised and educated. Bryan met the love of his life, Sherry Ralston, in Long Beach, CA. in 1983 and after a 30-year relationship the two were married in Siloam Springs, Ark. on March 3, 2003. Their union was blessed with three children. In 1989 the family moved back to Oologah-Talala area and in 1998 they bought a home in Claremore.
Bryan was a welder by trade, but more importantly, he enjoyed telling stories to his children, grandchildren, family, and friends. Riding his motorcycle was a favorite pastime and something he could do until the very end.
After Sherry passed in 2014, Bryan was lost, but then Jeni came along and brought a smile back to his face.
Bryan and Jeni moved to Fresno, Calif. and married on Jan. 31, 2017 to start a new chapter in life with her two children who he loved as if they were his own. Shortly after Bryan was diagnosed with lung cancer, but Jeni never left his side.
This loving husband, father, and grandfather will be missed by all whose lives he touched.
Bryan is survived by his wife Jeni Gropp; children Josh Ennis and wife Chrystal, Christina Whitecotton and husband Rob, Sean Ennis, Drew Turner and Skye Allbritton; grandchildren Kyndal, Gage, Callin, Zachary, Domenic, Kyeler, Logan, Caleb, Addison, and Aaron; in-laws Rick and Shirley Wheeler; brother Justin Baldwin and wife Robin; and numerous friends who are considered family. Bryan is preceded in death by his wife, Sherry Ralston.
