Douglas Chouteau Bighorse was born April 11, 1960, and left this life on August 23, 2022, at the age of 62 in Tulsa, Okla.

Chouteau was born in Pawhuska, the first born son (Elompa) of Douglas Bighorse and Delores Jean Pleasant. Chouteau loved his Osage culture and was placed in the Inlonshka ceremonial dance in Pawhuska and danced at an early age.

His adult life led him to Nursing Home care where he worked for many years. Chouteau’s passion was elder care. He loved meeting and taking exceptional care of his patients and even considered them to be family. He showed them joy in the good times and compassion for the families in their sad times. 

Chouteau was preceded in death by his father Douglas and mother Delores Jean. He is survived by his brother Paul Bighorse of Broken Arrow, niece Brittany Renea Bighorse of Tulsa, nephew Mason Thomas Bighorse of Broken Arrow, great-niece Taylor and great-nephew Tuibitsi, among many family and friends.

Arrangements were made through Floral Haven Funeral Home, 6500 S. 129th E. Ave., Broken Arrow.

Reverend Norman Daniel officiated. A Celebration of Life was held on Aug. 28, 2022. The funeral service was on Aug. 29, 2022. 

Chouteau touched so many hearts throughout his life and will be deeply missed. Rest in loving peace Unkie.
