Remembering Richard Gebhart and His Desire to Give Back to the Beef Cattle Industry
Thu, 04 Jun 2015 06:25:42 CDT
Along with his family, friends and cattle industry colleagues from literally all across the United States, we will be in Claremore for the celebration of the life of Richard Gebhart. His wife gave us all an invite via Facebook earlier this week- "A memorial service honoring the life of Richard Gebhart will be 10 a.m. Thursday, June 4, 2015 at the Claremore Expo Center. This life celebrating memorial will conclude with birthday cake in honor of Richardís 59th birthday which would have been Thursday. Those who wish to share a special memory are asked to bring a written story to either the memorial service or visitation. We will fill his cowboy boots with your notes and stories."
Ron Hays Beef Buzzes with Richard Gebhart in July 2013.
She added-"In lieu of flowers, those who wish to honor Richardís memory may do so with gifts to the Oklahoma Cattlemenís Foundation, 2500 Exchange Avenue, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 73108. We will be working with OCF to set up a program supporting cattle industry youth funded by these contributions and in keeping with Richard's passionate belief in developing youth leaders for the cattle industry."
Our Beef Buzz that aired this morning on great radio stations around the region via the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network featured some comments that we gleaned from Richard almost two years ago in July 2013- right after he was elected for a two year term as the President of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association. The full interview from that day can be heard by clicking here.
We zero in here on two of his responses- why he was willing to serve the cattle industry as an officer of the OCA, as the Chairman of the Federation of State Beef Councils and more- and his thoughts about Millennials that he interacted with regularly as a Professor at the University of Tulsa.
