Senator Lankford Saddened by the Passing of Bill Burgess

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) offered his deepest condolences to the family of Oklahoma favorite son, Bill Burgess, after his passing yesterday:

“I learned of Bill Burgess’s passing last night as I was driving through Lawton on the highway named for him. Like that highway, Bill was such a foundational part of the Lawton community. He was a fierce defender of Lawton, a visionary for growing the community, and an endless advocate for Fort Sill. I will miss his leadership and his friendship. I pray for his family during this difficult time. May they find peace, joy, and comfort in the memories of Bill.”
