Charles "Chuck" Drummond

March 12, 1943 ~ November 4, 2022 (age 79) 79 Years Old


Charles Robert Drummond, known as Chuck, died in Pawhuska on Friday, November 4.  Chuck was a well-loved father, grandfather, cattleman and friend.

Chuck was born in Pawhuska, Oklahoma on March 12, 1943.  He was president of his senior class and earned 36 merit badges as a Boy Scout.  Chuck graduated from Pawhuska High School in 1961 and studies Agricultural Economics at Oklahoma State University, where he was a member of Beta Theta Pi fraternity.  Chuck married Nan Olsen of Hardy, Oklahoma on August 17, 1964.  After graduating from OSU in 1965, Chuck and Nan moved to their ranch near Pawhuska, where they raised three sons.  Chuck became a Boy Scout leader and was elected president of Osage County Cattleman’s Association in 1974.  He was later inducted into the OCCA Hall of Fame.  In 1979, he was named Osage County Top Conservationist.  Chuck enjoyed raising and showing cutting horses and was a top ten breeder in the industry for many years.  He was inducted into the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Hall of Fame in 2015. 

Family and ranching were Chuck’s two primary passions in life.  He did not sit on many boards or committees, instead spending all of his time working on the ranch and building relationships.  Chuck saw great highs and lows in the cattle business throughout his fifty-plus years as a rancher, and he gained valuable perspectives and insights that he willingly shared with his children and grandchildren.

Chuck is survived by his sons Tim Drummond and his wife Missy of Pawhuska, and Ladd Drummond and his wife Ree of Pawhuska; grandchildren Alex Scott and her husband Mauricio, Caleb Drummond, Paige Drummond, Halle Drummond, Bryce Drummond and Todd Drummond; as well as loving nieces, nephews and cousins.  He is preceded in death by his son, Todd Olsen Drummond, his parents, Fred Alexander Drummond and Ruth Thatcher Drummond, his brother, Tom E. Drummond, his sister, Patricia A. Drummond, and his beloved wife, Nan Olsen Drummond.

A celebration of Chuck’s life will be held at Presbyterian Disciples Church in Pawhuska on Monday, November 14, at 10:00am.
