Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) released the following statement on the passing of his friend and former Oklahoma Department of Transportation Secretary Gary Ridley:

“It is with sadness that I and all of Oklahoma mourn the loss of such a selfless Oklahoman, Gary Ridley. From working with Gary on the major crosstown Expressway project in Oklahoma City when I was first elected to Congress to the countless projects all across the Third District of Oklahoma, Gray Ridley was a shining example of a true public servant who cared about the quality of his work and the positive impact it would have on our transportation system, and the people of our great state and country. 

“Gary leaves a lasting legacy for the professionals at the Oklahoma Department of Transportation and those whose lives he impacted throughout his dedicated career. My sympathies and prayers are with his wife Eula and his entire family during this sad time.”
