It is with a great deal of sadness that I share with you the news that Bill Rhees of BMI Properties has died. It is my understanding that he passed away quietly in his sleep after a lengthy health battle.
You may recall that Bill was our 2013 Builder of the Year. He was a builder in Tulsa and a proud member of the HBA. His son, Phil Rhees, is our current Vice President/Treasurer.
He served in various leadership roles in both the local and state associations. Blessed with the ability to bring calmness and sanity to any situation, Bill was a great mediator when it was needed. His wit and humor will be missed.
He was truly a man of God. Please keep Phil Rhees and the rest of the family in your prayers.
We have been notified that the memorial service for Bill Rhees has been set for Thursday, August 21, 3:30 pm at the South Tulsa Baptist Church.The address is 10310 S. Sheridan in Tulsa. There will be a reception with the family following the service.
The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to either the Agape Pregnancy Center, 114 N Grand, Suite 100, Okmulgee, OK, 74447, or the American Lung Association.
