Paying tribute to State Rep. Bob Plunk

(Continued)

Ada —

“He knew a great deal about the inner workings of the state Legislature,” said Peaden. “That was obvious.”

Bruce Plunk said his father cared about volunteer fire departments and helped area departments find money for new equipment. He also provided cafeteria equipment for one local school and helped another school buy new textbooks.

Bruce said his father was proud of his military career and his service in the Legislature, and he loved his hometown.

“My dad was a servant,” Bruce said. “He was very proud to be an American and to have served in wartime. He was very proud to have worked in the Legislature and been able to work for rural Oklahoma and especially Pontotoc County.

“But his ultimate love was Allen, Okla., where he grew up. He wanted to see good things happen to Allen and the people of Allen.”
