He went on to serve our country in the U.S. Navy, and following his service, he graduated from OU. R.C. has been instrumental in numerous construction and entrepreneurial businesses, activities and organizations throughout his life. He was responsible for constructing many buildings for the University, including Lloyd Noble Center, the Physical Science Tower, and other notable buildings across the state.

R.C. was eternally passionate about helping others, which led to the creation and success of Miraflex. R.C. will be remembered for his loveable orneriness and considerate nature of others. The family extends much love and thanks to R.C.'s loyal "secretary" of 21 years, Kathy, for going above and beyond to help him. They also want those at Parkway and Classen Grill to know he was always very appreciative of them for taking care of his needs. He was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Margaret; and also by his best friend of 22 years, Emily Jones.
