August 13, 2003 - August 30, 2019
Braydon Aaron Rutz, 16, passed away on Friday, August 30, 2019, at his home in Ponca City. Born August 13, 2003, Braydon is the son of Brandon and Erin Rutz. Braydon attended Trout Elementary School, West Middle School, East Junior High School, and was currently a sophomore at Ponca City High School. He consistently maintained a 4.0 GPA and earned numerous academic awards. Vo-Ag was one of Braydonís favorite classes and he was also an FFA member.
In addition to being smart, Braydon was creative, imaginative, and artistic. As early as first grade, he began writing and illustrating books and making stop-action movies to show off to his family. His passion for writing continued, and he published many stories online. Braydon had a mind for brainteasers and solving puzzles, as demonstrated by his impressive Rubikís cube collection. He enjoyed playing video games and listening to music, and he was a genius when it came to technology and electronics of any kind.
One of the most amazing things about Braydon was his heart for others. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it and spent the last several summers working with his Papa. His favorite times with family included cooking with Nana, dinners out with Grandma, annual family vacations to Florida, and playing make-believe games with his baby sister.
Most recently, Braydon was taking flying lessons. He obtained his student pilot license (even before he got his driverís license), and he was only a few lessons away from earning his solo license. His future goal was to serve in the United States Air Force.
Braydon is survived by his parents, Brandon and Erin Rutz; sisters Madison and Brynn Rutz; grandparents Bill and Betty Rutz, Paula Slater and Michael Winkelman of Ponca City and Daryl and Sheila Slater of Tulsa; great-grandparents Zetta and Ted Ketterling of Antlers and Alta Slater of Hutchinson, KS; first cousin Elise and numerous aunts and uncles.
Braydon was preceded in death by great grandparents Roy and Arlene Furr, Loren Slater, John Jordan, Sr., and C.A. and Josephine Rutz.
