Saying Goodbye to a Tulsa Friend

Jan 13, 2012 - 12:39 PM

Today, family and friends, and the entire Tulsa community say goodbye to Walter Helmerich III.

Most people who live in Tulsa have been touched by Mr. Helmerich in some way. If you play at Tulsa parks with your family, or use the library system or visit the Tulsa Zoo, then you have enjoyed the philanthropy of Mr. Helmerich. Philbrook Museum of Art and Hillcrest Medical Center are also among the recipients of the Helmerich's generosity.

Mr. Helmerich will be missed by those close to him, and we at TulsaKids offer our condolences. Our city is certainly better off because of Walter Helmerich III. Even though he is gone, Mr. Helmerich's generous legacy will live on in ways too numerous to count.
