Funeral set for Boone Pickens

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will be among those to speak Thursday at the funeral for oilman and noted Oklahoma State University supporter T-Boone Pickens.

His funeral will be held at 2 p.m. at the Highland Park United Methodist Church in Dallas. His longtime friend Alan White will also be a speaker at the services.

Oklahoma State will honor Pickens who contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the university over the years. It will hold a Celebration of Life ceremony Sept. 25 at 3 p.m. in the Gallagher-Iba arena and the event will be open to the public.

Pickens died last week at the age of 91.
