Your parents were WONDERFUL people and I will miss them like my own.
To Olin age 57, I was watching college football today when they said Olin Branstetter died. My heart sank. Then I found out is was your father. My heart was lifted a little but I realized how hard it must be for you and your family. My deepest thought are with you. Dave Reynolds Class of 72

Olin was my fishing buddy for many years and I will truly miss him. I want the family to know that they have my heartfelt sympathy.
Olin and Paula were wonderful people and will be sorely missed. They were exceptionally generous and inspirational to our nursing students with their gifts of scholarships and Bibles for many years. Our prayers are with you.
Paul, Jack, Henry and families.Olin was the oldest of the 22 Richard cousins and I was no. 12.He was a great mentor and he and Dusty's life exemplified how we all should live. Olin had a grand sense of humor and a wonderful memory. Dusty encouraged him to share his memories of how things were in his growing up years and we all loved to hear those stories about our parents and family. Your parents will certainly be missed by all whose life they touched. Patty and jerry krier ( my parents were Pat and Dolly Richard )
I have great memories of your family's home. Your parents were always welcoming. I will never forget the cake your Mom baked and decorated for my 18th birthday. I am so glad that I had seen her recently. I'm sad you lost both parents at once, but glad that they never suffered losing each other and that they left this life, doing what they loved together. Much love to you and your family.
Jack, Paul, Henry and family--my heart is so heavy. I am so sorry for the loss of your parents Olin and Dusty, some of the best people I have ever known. They will be truly missed. God Bless you all.
Paul, Jack Henry and families: Our deepest sympathy for your loss of two fine people. Spending time at your home growing up was always such great fun! Your parents will always have a special place in my heart. I will always remember them as a wonderful, loving couple with room in their lives for everyone. Olin never forgot a thing! I have many fond memories of them at family gatherings in Harmon. They will be greatly missed. May God bless and comfort you at this time.
Paul, Truley and Paris; Our prayers go out to you and other family members at the loss of your parents and grand-parents. I met Mr. and Mrs. Branstetter on several occasions when they would come to Davis to watch the girls in school and church activities. You could tell they were quality people. We need more people like them. However, God saw it was time for Him to enjoy their company in Heaven. We will continue to pray for you and be here to help you in the coming days.
I wish to share my deepest sympathy to the entire family of Olin and Dusty Branstetter. I have known them for almost 40 years and we spoke frequently. Olin had a love for FarmHouse and OSU and expressed it often. They will both be missed. The active chapter and alumni will be in a group together at the OSU memerial.

Paul, Jack, and Henry,
My sincerest sympathies for your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting your parents when I helped them with your brother's estate matters. I instantly knew why Olin was so special. May you find comfort in the memory of the many warm and happly moments you shared with them.
My heart is heavy today. I was Olin's secretary durning his first years in the state senate. We developed a friendly family realationship that will last forever. Annual birthday phone calls,dinner gatherings with Dusty and Olin were always a joyful event.Olin was never lacking in conversation topics. Jim and I have lost two of our best friends.
I have many fond memories of serving with Olin in the Oklahoma State Senate. He was proud of his association with the Gideons. His faith was strong. He was proud that Dusty was such a great pilot and he loved to fly. He had a quick smile and a cheerful spirit. He was kind. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Blessings to you.
Olin and Dusty were truly angels in time of need, and the love of God flowed through them to touch so many lives. They will both be greatly missed. My prayers go out to all the families for their tragic loss.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Branstetter family. Your parents were a wonderful example of what we should all live to be. God bless and may you find peace in all the good work they did.
Today I am not just a Sooner, but a native Oklahoman. We have a great tradition of helping and supporting our neighbors. God bless those that were lost, their families, and the OSU family.
My prayers and thoughts are with the Branstetter family. My heart is so heavy for your loss. May God bless you and keep you and give you peace.
Although I moved away from Oklahoma many years ago, I will never forget the kindness of both of your parents - especially when I lost my father in 1976 when your dad was a pallbearer and when I lost my mom in 2008, again your father was a pall-bearer and both of your parents were so supportive. They will be missed. Sarah (Gay) Wilton
Olin was a distant cousin but I remember him and my Grandma talks about growing up with him. He was a good man and will be missed by many. My prayers are with his family during this time of tragedy as well as with the coaches families.

Your parents were wonderful people. I am so very sorry for you and your family's loss.
Paul, Henry, and Jack,
I'm so sorry for your loss. They went together and they would have wanted it that way. They were powerful friends to our family. I'll never forget what they did for us when my own dad passed. We will miss them.
I'm so sorry Jack. I will never forget what your dad did for me. I tell that story so many times. It always gets a laugh. Brenda and I are praying for you, Janice and your family; and.... thanks for being someone I call a friend.
