Drake Yancey, age 15 and student of Bartlesville High School, passed away on Tuesday, October 11, 2016, in Bartlesville. Drake Onyx Yancey was born in Bartlesville on July 3, 2001. He was the son of Khrislyn (Phillips) Robinett. Drake lived in Bartlesville with his great-grandmother, Virginia Holt. He was a student at Bartlesville High School where he was a sophomore. In school, he was a member of the French Club, Drama Class and also was a member of the Bartlesville Royal Rangers. Drake attended Spirit Church in Bartlesville where he was active in many of the church activities. He always lived his life on his own terms, never worrying about what other people thought. He had a helping spirit about him, always thinking of others and he never met a stranger. He loved animals and he loved to read, but most of all he loved God. Although, his life was short in years, he, perhaps, touched more lives than many who lived far more years than he did.
