Dr. Fears provided understandable and cognizant remarks to every subject he tackles...Dr. Fears was FUN...we always looked forward to his lectures in Ardmore sponsored by the Noble Foundation. Our deepest sympathy to his family ... our state and nation are in mourning for this great man.

Dr. Fears was an outstanding example of 'higher education'; he taught so well that students enjoyed learning and felt as though they were reliving historical events right there in the classroom. He was not only a great teacher, he was a good leader. If you went into office hours he would ask about your major, plans and goals for life. He will be sorely missed in Norman. Prayers and best wishes are sent to his family and loved ones.

I heard him speak at Profiles and Perspectives seminars by the Noble Foundation in Ardmore.

He was so easy to listen to that I feel as though a personal friend has died. Dr Fears spoke of America's need for a new George Washington, sadly now America needs another educated speaker like Dr Fears.

May The Lord bless his family, co-workers, students and the audiences who loved him so.

Requiescat in pace, Dr. Fears

I was privileged to hear Rufus speak at a number of YPO/WPO events over the years as well as at a lecture series at Oklahoma Christian University. Additionally, two of my children are Letters/Classics majors and were blessed to have classes/capstone with him. My oldest, Todd, also worked with him at OCPA and considered Rufus his mentor. What a brilliant, kind, funny man with such a gift for storytelling and making history come alive and relevant to today's issues! His death is an enormous loss for the University of Oklahoma, the state of Oklahoma, and all of those who loved him! Our deepest condolences to his family. You will be in our prayers!
