"We are shocked and saddened by the passing of Aubrey McClendon and join in prayer for his family," said David Rainbolt, Chairman of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber. "The quality of life we have come to enjoy in Oklahoma City is due in no small part to his vision and generosity. Very few have the ability or the drive to change a community or state, much less the entire world as Aubrey did. In a way, this is an end of an era, but Aubrey would want us to build on his legacy as we look to the future. He belongs to the ages now, but we will never forget him."
