TULSA, Oklahoma - The City of Tulsa says a longtime city councilor has died.

David Patrick served more than two decades as the councilor for district three.

In a statement released Friday, Mayor G.T. Bynum said Patrick was a good man.

“David Patrick was a good man and a loyal friend. He was loved and admired at every level of the City government. His love for his family was reflected in his service to Tulsa. David’s common sense made him a success in all his entrepreneurial endeavors and helped him resolve so many conflicts at the City. I am thankful for the chance I had to learn from him over a decade working together and am heartbroken he won’t have the long retirement with Dannette that he had earned,” Mayor G.T. Bynum said. 

Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum, Tulsa City Council ViceChair Phil Lakin and the Tulsa City Council offer their deepest condolences to the Patrick Family and will miss their dear friend, David Patrick.  The city has not said how Patrick died.
