Glenda Pearson senior pic:
Darling girl that towered over me so my instincts were first to run ... but Glenda was nothing if not gentle, kind and sweet so I never ran. I just stayed and enjoyed the protection of the shade or protection she generously offered. I met her in elementary school, but I don't remember which one I was in when I met her. I just remember being new and afraid and grateful she was there.

Such a kind gentle spirit.

I went to church with Glenda at Casa View Baptist. She was pretty quiet and I didn't know her well but she was always nice.

Such a hoot. Fun girl and always made me laugh. She was so much fun on the trip to New Orleans when we played at the Sugar Bowl.

Lynn Porter senior pic:
Anyone who knew Lynn remembers him as an easy going and loyal friend forever. He continues to impact the lives of those who knew him and those whose lives he changed. Lynn was fortunate enough to have married the love of his life and to have adopted two children Thomas and Casey, whom he dearly loved.
Lynn enjoyed a successful business career, but more importantly, he treasured his relationships with family and friends. His life revolved around his family, friends, and the rent-to-own business that he and Betty began in Tulsa, which had grown to seven locations in the Oklahoma area.
The impact he made on so many will be everlasting. We have lost a "best friend" and confidant. He will be truly missed by his friends and family including his wife, Betty; sons, Tommy, Casey and Corey; brother, Ronald; grandchildren, Nicole, Christina and Zachary; as well as those he cherished and became his family through marriage.
Randy Braucher, president of the Oklahoma Rental Dealers Association, said, "Lynn was a pioneer of the rent-to-own industry. He will be missed."

Pat Powers senior pic:
Pat was my "First Love/Boyfriend" in the 1st grade. When I was dating someone in high school, Pat asked me to the Band Banquet. My boyfriemd/husband had no problems with it because he knew we knew each other forever and was always friends. Showing the kind of friendship we had, he and Carolyn came to my husband memorial service, coming from Austin. That was the kind of person he was, always caring.

Pat sent me the sweetest note after our 20th high school reunion - thanking the committee for the great work ...we had the current B A band and drill team in full force. But, he mainly wanted to thank us for bringing him back together with the love of his life!

Gosh, when I think about Pat so many fun memories come flooding back. Pat wasn't just a "band" guy - he could run in any circle and be respected for what he brought: a delightful and devilish sense of humor; a caring heart; a ready hand and a willingness to work hard. Never saw him be unkind or uncaring to anyone for that matter. Those things are so rare in our world and they were instinctual, integral parts of Pat.

The video of the R. T. Hill band reminded my of another story about Pat that shows a different aspect. Our band director (the one in the video) never seemed to show up when we had a nighttime band party and we always wondered why. We had a night time stage band performance scheduled and the band director didn't show up. Pat stepped up and said we would continue on our own and he would direct us. When Pat went to find a baton he found that the band director's desk was full of empty vodka bottles, so we had a pretty good idea why he never showed up to nighttime events. Pat did as he said and lead us to a successful performance, so while Pat could be a prankster he was also a leader.

Pat never worried about getting in a little trouble, but he walked that fine line such that he didn't get into "real trouble". I remember one of his pranks he pulled in junior high school. Drugs were starting to get more prevalent and Pat took some aspirins and used food coloring to dye them different colors. He let it be known he had some "pills" in his sax case. It wasn't too long before word made it to the Principal's office. Several people including the Principal came down to the band room to find the offending drugs and of course Pat was taken to the Principal's office. He wasn't there too long before they figured out that the pills were just aspirins. I'm sure that Pat "got a talking to", but I don't think there were any lasting repercussions. The Principal was not well respected by the students or the faculty, so just about everyone else in the school enjoyed the prank.
