Kenneth Pat Buffalohead was born December 28, 1946 at Pawnee Indian Hospital to Robert Buffalohead and Eva Black Buffalohead and passed from this life in Enid on June 7, 2020.  He was a member of the Otoe-Missouri and Ponca Tribes of Oklahoma.  In his younger life they lived in Alva, Enid, Ponca City and Red Rock.  As an adult he graduated second in a class of 271 at OSU-Okmulgee.  He studied and became a diesel mechanic for OneOk Natural Gas Affiliates.  On August 9, 1973 Kenneth married Connie Adkisson at a little Baptist Church in Okmulgee. Shortly after he graduated OSU-Okmulgee he and his family moved to Del City.  They lived there from the mid 70’s until 1991.  Then he and his family moved to Helena. He started helping his father-in-law with his farm in Major County.  He opened Ken’s Games Etc. with four pool tables and a few arcade games.  He opened it to give the kids of Helena something to do after school and on the weekends.  His favorite thing to do right behind bass fishing was to beat people at pool.  When he felt real cocky he would beat people with a broomstick instead of a pool cue.  After he closed the game room in 1995 he spent the rest of his life farming, fishing, and spoiling his grandkids and great grandkids.  Another of his hobbies was playing cards with his parents, sisters, and anybody else brave enough to play against him.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Albert and Ada Black; his parents, Robert and Eva Buffalohead; his sister, Bernadine; his nieces, Leslie and Sheila.

He is survived by his wife, Connie Buffalohead of Ringwood; his sisters, Donna Grace of Ponca City, Denise Kelley of Tulsa, and Elinor Osorio of Ponca City; his daughter, Jennifer Fishback and husband, Rob of Helena; sons, Shadlow Buffalohead of Enid and Kendal Buffalohead and wife, Gracie of Helena; grandchildren, Miranda Fishback of Helena, Kolton Fishback of Alva, Skylar Fishback of Helena, Shadlow Buffalohead II and wife, Alexis of Enid, Jeramiah Buffalohead of Enid, Micah Buffalohead of Enid, Caleb Buffalohead, Maria Buffalohead and Chief Benjamin of Helena; great grandchildren Rayne, Jocelyn, Kaydn, and Adaline.
