Lives well lived

They touched the community in various ways, some serving publicly and some behind the scenes. They were teachers, community servants, businesspeople and mentors. Here, in the words of their friends and family, we recognize 26 Tulsans we lost in the past year.



William “Bill” Brown
Sept. 2, 1953-March 20, 2008
Former Holland Hall band director; jazz musician
“Bill was very passionate about getting kids to do the best they can do. Bill started his students very early to get them to improvise, to play and to get them to feel comfortable and find their own voice with their instrument. That was the biggest connection Bill had with his kids … Bill was a very positive person. He was very happy and very enthusiastic about life.”
Steve Dyer, Holland Hall director of fine arts and Upper School choir director

The Rev. T. Oscar Chappelle Jr.
Oct. 7, 1942-Jan. 3, 2008
Morning Star Baptist Church senior pastor emeritus
“My uncle and I were close, so I miss everything (about him). We had one thing in common; he was the twin brother to my mother and I have a twin brother. After my grandfather died in 1990, he became the head of our family and made sure we spent holidays together and was very supportive in what we did, and that included his son, nieces and nephews. My grandparents made sure we were a close-knit family and my uncle kept it going. It is not the same without him and my aunt; it is an empty void in our lives now because we lost a good man that we loved so much.”
Danette Williams, niece

Sharon Corbitt
Nov. 13, 1946-Dec. 17, 2007
American and Oklahoma bar associations’ family law sections chairwoman; Domestic Violence Intervention Services (DVIS) past
president; oversaw opening of the Family Safety Center; Long Term Care Authority 
of Tulsa founding trustee
“She would say, ‘Give me your hardest cases’ because she knew they wouldn’t be taken by other attorneys. And she would take the really hard cases involved in custody or mail-order brides. She was just really good as an attorney and she wasn’t intimidated, and that’s what the victims needed — an attorney who would stand up and wouldn’t be bullied and Sharon couldn’t be bullied.”
Felicia Collins Correia, YWCA Tulsa CEO and former DVIS executive director

James C. Lang
Nov. 10, 1940-Dec. 12, 2007
Sneed Lang law firm founding member; former TU College of Law Alumni Association president
“He was one of my best friends for 37 years. At the DA’s office, he was my mentor and showed me the ropes, so to speak. Jim went with me when I went to try my first preliminary hearing. He was a friend and colleague and I was an assistant at his firm for a period of time. And, of course, he, Sharon, Jan and I took vacations together and ate at each other’s house over 100 times. I was supposed to grow old with him and not go to his funeral … Jim was a very ethical lawyer, a great friend and an individual in whom you could put a lot of trust in his word.”
Rick Dunn, colleague

Fulton Collins
June 14, 1943-July 30, 2008
University of Tulsa benefactor and local business 
executive; responsible for Collins Hall at TU and 
Fulton and Susie Collins Fitness Center at TU
“Fulton Collins was a business and community leader of exceptional insight and energy. Without question, TU owes much of its remarkable progress to Fulton’s leadership. In practical terms, he coached us to analyze carefully, plan thoroughly and execute consistently. Fulton’s ability to inspire was matched only by his desire to see others thrive. Shortly before his passing, he worked with local business leaders to initiate a $30 million campaign that will be used to revitalize TU’s MBA program and other initiatives within the college. The Collins College of Business brand pays tribute to both Fulton’s service to the university and his passion for business education at The University of Tulsa.”
Steadman Upham, TU president

David Fist
July 28, 1931-Jan. 19, 2008
Tulsa Public Schools’ main legal counsel, 
winning landmark desegregation case for the
district; Rosenstein, Fist and Ringold partner
“I do that (living his legacy) every day by living life the way he taught me and raising two of his grandsons. I teach them they have to leave the world better than they found it. It was passed down from the legacy of my father, and it’s simply like breathing to me. I can honestly say his life was well lived because he did leave it better than he found it, not just in education and desegregation, but in people.”
Rebecca Fist Bednar, daughter

Irvin Frank
Feb. 2, 1929-Feb. 18, 2008
Nature preserve benefactor for Oklahoma’s natural habitat, including the Keystone Ancient Forest; Jewish Federation and Temple Israel former president; former National Holocaust Council member
“If I ever had anybody, Irv was a mentor. I could talk to him about my business, and I know I could get an honest opinion … There is a true phrase that defines Irv. He’s a true mensch, meaning he is an overall good guy. Truly, that was him … He put his resources to the betterment of other people whether it was through the environment, education or community service. The world is a better place because he lived here.”
Marc Goldberg, friend

Darla Hall
Feb. 23, 1938-Feb. 21, 2008
Former District 2 city councilor; westside community advocate
“Everything we ever accomplished out here, Darla was behind it all. Any growth we had, Darla was there … Whatever you put out, Darla was first in line ... Towards the end, she’d show up at Chamber (meetings). She didn’t want to sit down. If she was arguing with us, we knew she was feeling better, and when she was quiet, we were concerned. She wasn’t shy, she spoke her mind and everyone knew if they asked her for an opinion … they’d get it, right or wrong.”
Linda Fitzgerald, Southwest Tulsa Chamber of Commerce president

James Harvey
Jan. 19, 1929-Nov. 19, 2008
Longtime Hillcrest Medical Center CEO; Hillcrest Medical Center Foundation founder and president
“Dad was a quiet leader who wanted to improve the quality of life in his patients and employees. He initiated so many new programs. He was innovative … He provided onsite day care for his employees and probably was one of the first. Of course, he started the first burn center in the state. He was one who believed in long-range planning and implemented it vigorously … I rarely saw Dad make a bad decision. He was usually right.”
Barbara Brandenburgh, daughter

Jack Helton
Aug. 10, 1928-Jan. 21, 2008
Former director of Tulsa County Department of Social Services
“He was just always for the underprivileged … He helped start Credit Counseling in Tulsa. He helped start Neighbor for Neighbor. That gives you an idea of the kind of person he was … He was a really giving man and unassuming person who believed in making it right for people. He made a difference.”
Ceci Stansill, daughter

Dr. Rodney Huey
Jan. 1, 1950-Dec. 18, 2007
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma medical director and president; board of directors, Court Appointed Special Advocates of Tulsa, Oklahoma Caring Foundation and the Parent Child Center of Tulsa
“He was a very good advocate and someone who I could count on. As busy as he was, it didn’t matter. He responded. The day he passed away, he came by the office to make a donation for our holiday party. He came in, sat down and visited with the staff. He didn’t just brush in. I always marveled at as busy as he was, he always took the time to respond to me. Wherever he was, he stopped to take the time to make you feel important.”
Pam Dose, CASA-Tulsa executive director

Harold McCoy
Nov. 14, 1950-Sept. 5, 2008
Former Tulsa assistant fire chief; longtime fire service educator
“I knew him for 28 years. I met him at the fire station as a youth in the neighborhood. He changed my life because he always encouraged me to be the best I could be, make good grades and go above and beyond than required … When I did join the fire department, he pinned my badge on me. He was the one always encouraging me to go for my dreams to become a firefighter. For him to be the one encouraging me and for being the one to pin the badge on me was a proud moment for me.”
Victor Grimes, Tulsa Fire Department

Edward “Ed” McFarland
Nov. 19, 1931-March 17, 2008
Air Force Reserve major general; Oklahoma Air National Guard member; Ed McFarland & Co. Realtors president; Tulsa Airport Authority vice chairman; Indian Nations Council of the Boy Scouts of America director; Tulsa Air & Space Museum & Planetarium supporter
“Ed was at every board meeting. He was nominated as an honorary board member, which is why we have an exhibit of him here. Ed was a very great promoter of the museum by bringing in guests and he was instrumental in helping us get certified by the National Museum of the United States Air Force, which gives us the ability to have historical items on loan from them … Ed was a great guy, and he was the finest dresser I ever saw. He looked like he dropped out of GQ, whether he was attending a board meeting or just stopping by.”
Kim Jones, Tulsa Air & Space Museum & Planetarium curator

Gloria Grimes McFarland
Oct. 21, 1937-March 18, 2008
Civic leader with the YWCA, Tulsa Opera, Tulsa Town Hall and the Arts and Humanities Council of Tulsa; University of Tulsa board of trustees; Junior League of Tulsa president
“I hope others will be as dedicated to helping Tulsa. Gloria undertook many chairmanships. She was great at getting things off the ground, making it successful and getting the job done. At the time she was president of League (JLT), lots and lots of new people were moving into Tulsa, and she was really good at introducing them to people … Gloria was a fabulous cook and loved to entertain. She just did a lot of things for a lot of people … Both she and Ed, we miss them.”
Bonnie Henke, Junior League of Tulsa

Catherine Mae “Cissy” Parker
July 13, 1922-Sept. 18, 2008
Tulsa philanthropist; United Methodist Women past president; Frances E. Willard Home for Girls state board member
“She was the perfect wife. Good looking, fun, happy and a real family person. She loved her church and her church friends. So I had 63 years of happiness and our marriage was just fantastic ... I had a lot of respect for her. She was a lady. Her kids loved her, her grandkids loved her and I loved her. She was all the things you want your wife to be.”
Robert “Bob” Parker, husband and owner of Parker Drilling Co.

Alfred “Al” Philips
July 19, 1923-April 24, 2008
Founding president of Tulsa Junior College (today known as Tulsa Community College); Oklahoma 
Educators Hall of Fame member
“I started at TJC when I was in my early 20s and I always looked forward to times when Dr. Philips would come to campus to speak or just interact with employees. He was an extremely approachable man and had a tremendously positive outlook. He had a great skill of remembering people’s names, and that made such an impression on me. He was a true visionary leader, who, in the early ’70s, developed a blueprint for TJC. The blueprint called for a four-campus system serving 20,000 students by the year 2000, which TCC accomplished. Putting plans and goals in writing really taught me how important it is to have a vision for the future.”
Tom McKeon, TCC president

Dr. Daniel Plunket
May 7, 1929-Feb. 24, 2008
Founding chairman of the pediatrics department at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine in Tulsa; Tulsa’s first pediatric oncologist; helped establish Tulsa’s Ronald McDonald House
“(One of my fond memories was) seeing him not only with my son in the pediatric oncology area at St. John but also interacting with the other children with such a huge smile. He always wore colorful ties with kids’ faces on them, and he always got down on the same level as the children and looked them straight in the eye. We’d say, ‘How does he do that?’ He got very close to the children, family, siblings and grandparents … He had the biggest heart and love for children … That was his legacy, an excellent, compassionate physician and friend. He allowed himself to become very attached.”
Phyllis Dotson, Ronald McDonald House 
advisory board member

Robert Newsome Powers
June 16, 1954-March 10, 2008
Former Tulsa Historical Society curator; oversaw start of the Tulsa Hall of Fame
“Robert had such a love for Tulsa and the rich legacy we have. He had the desire to share that … He was always concerned about preserving old buildings and how quickly we tear them down. He just appreciated them and saw their beauty in the community. That was something that was very dear to his heart. And so was art deco. He was so active with art deco ... Flamboyant. Passionate. Witty. On the edge. That was Robert. And always with a bow tie.”
Sharon King Davis, King Investments partner and KingsPointe Village Shopping Center developer and former Tulsa Historical Society president

Walt Radmilovich
Sept. 28, 1930-Oct. 15, 2008
Longtime Tulsa journalist and public relations executive 
working with Oklahoma Natural Gas Co. and the Tulsa World; Public Relations Society of America, Tulsa Chapter, president; Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame member; Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame past director
“I believe Walt enjoyed all the attributes of a good journalist: skill, inquiring mind, seeker of truth, etc. I don’t know if I have met anyone who could do it better. He was just the best in his field. It was inspiring to work with and for him. I think he could have been a writer and then editor of The New York Times. He was so dedicated to doing his job right … He took his role very seriously, often sitting at his typewriter late into the night. But he was also a kind and thoughtful person to work for or just to be around.”
John Simmons, former Oklahoma Natural Gas colleague and PRSA member

Harry Sebran
Oct. 12, 1921-Aug. 27, 2008
Cantor emeritus at Temple Israel
“Cantor Sebran was loved by a wide variety of people. He taught a lot of our students in Hebrew school and prepared them for bar and bat mitzvahs. He’s one of the most sensitive people I’ve ever known. He looked for the key to unlock each child. He had an antenna to pick up anyone who was hurting. People understood how he cared for them. Young people simply adored him. Harry was a mensch, a committed, knowledgeable Jew. He was a marvelous teacher and an exemplary human being. He prized himself being the rabbi’s right-hand man, and he certainly was this rabbi’s.”
Rabbi Charles Sherman, Temple Israel

Reynaldo “Chris” Romero
June 4, 1939-July 24, 2008
Greater Tulsa Area Hispanic Affairs Commission founding member; chiropractor
“Chris was always helping those in need, or he called me to see if I knew anyone who could help. We just resourced people to the Hispanic community … He always hoped to do the right thing, and he always would do something better for someone else who needed it … They (the Hispanic community) lost one of their first role models they could look up to in Tulsa … Chris was first and foremost a great human being, and he was never ashamed to say he was Hispanic. ... He was proud of his heritage, and he was very patriotic and proud to be American.”
Aurora Helton, Greater Tulsa Area Hispanic Affairs Commission founding member

George Renberg
Dec. 11, 1913-March 3, 2008
Family patriarch and owner of Renberg’s specialty clothing store company
“My dad really created an awareness that people do represent themselves in the way they dress … He believed you dress to make that impression to present yourself in the best possible way … We were recognized through the years as one of the top specialty stores in the United States, as well as with the best service. We wanted you to leave confident that you would make a good first impression. I remember he used to say to all our buyers and people, ‘We’re here to make a customer and not a sale.’ He was more interested in the customer than just ringing the register.”
Bob Renberg, son

Jimmy Sellers
Jan. 1, 1929-Jan. 22, 2008
Longtime athletic director at Edison High School; managed swimming-related 
programs at Southern Hills Country Club
“Jim Sellers’ stories … We would meet at coffee class … on Tuesdays for coffee and donuts. He was such a vibrant part of it ... Most of the class is former educators and coaches and some corporate members, and most are retired in education and athletics. We tell a lot of stories about athletics. Jim was always a leader in this. That’s a recent memory I have of Jim Sellers ... He was a good coach and a great athletic director. The field house is named after him, if that gives you an idea of what the Edison community thinks about him.”
J.V. Haney, former colleague at Edison High School

Robert Simms
Feb. 6, 1926-Jan. 31, 2008
Retired Oklahoma Supreme Court justice; Tulsa County district judge
“He was a very positive influence in carrying out his duties in the Tulsa community and later in Oklahoma City. He was also a very energetic prosecutor. I never questioned his integrity or his judgment. I miss him as a friend and a figure on the bench ... Bob certainly was a modest man and certainly a man who grew on the bench in many ways.”
S.M. “Buddy” Fallis, former Tulsa district attorney

Neal Sweeney
June 13, 1945-Sept. 5, 2008
Former TU football player; played one season with the Denver Broncos; TU Athletic 
Hall of Fame member; Retail Fuels Marketing president and CEO
“Our daughter, Allison, actually came up with the Sweeney Strong logo because it said in two words what Neal represented to us. He was not only strong physically (physical fitness was always very important to Neal), but he was strong morally and spiritually. Neal always set high standards for himself, and he gave 100 percent of himself in everything he did: at his job, working out, playing with his grandchildren, spending time with his family and friends. His philosophy was A+E=V: attitude plus enthusiasm equals victory. Anyone who knew Neal knew he was the most enthusiastic and positive person around. It isn’t just his family who is missing him; it is an entire community.”
Jan Sweeney, wife

Arthur E. “Gene” Tucker
April 12, 1928-July 6, 2008
University of Tulsa benefactor; business executive; longtime QuikTrip board member; responsible for Tucker Family Tennis Court at TU’s Michael D. Case Tennis Center; 
recognized by TU with its new campus address: 800 Tucker Drive
“Gene served on QuikTrip’s board of directors for 30 years. He was a solid and practical businessman. His hands-on expertise for capital input and labor-intensive issues was vital to QuikTrip’s growth as an emerging business … Gene was personally and foremost a long-term friend of mine. After his retirement from QuikTrip’s board, we continued our frequent luncheons and he remained a trusted voice and advocate for QuikTrip. I was lucky to call him my friend.”
Chester Cadieux, QuikTrip founder
