Braggs High School teachers and administrators loved having high school junior Arron Tyler Wade Visor in their classes, Braggs School Superintendent Lucky McCrary said.

“He was one of those students everyone liked,” he said. “He was an outstanding student and basketball player.”

Fellow students, friends and families will honor Visor at a memorial service at 2 p.m. Wednesday at Braggs High School. Visor was killed early Saturday morning when the 1991 Ford pickup he was driving struck a tree on Oklahoma 10 north of Braggs. He was 17.

“This is going to be a loss to our community and school,” McCrary said.

He said the school called in clergy representatives and counselors to help students deal with the loss. He said Visor’s class had 18 students.

McCrary said Visor was active in baseball and basketball and took classes at Indian Capital Technology Center. Friends are putting together a shadow box that will include his sports jersey.

Visor also was active in 4-H and enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting and skiing.

A report issued by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said Visor was driving his truck “at a high rate of speed,” south on Oklahoma 10 when he ran off the left side of the road and struck a tree at around 12:31 a.m. Saturday, four and a half miles north of Braggs.

The driver was pinned for about an hour and was reported dead at the from internal trunk injuries, the report said.

The truck was equipped with seat belts, but they were not in use, the report said. There were no airbags.
