Tulsa lost an iconic philanthropist and businessman.
Henry Zarrow died at the age of 97 but he leaves behind a lasting legacy in Green Country.
Many have called it a legacy of generosity.
Mr. Zarrow's impact on Green Country can be seen all around the city of Tulsa.
The man who graduated from Central High School, attended the University of Oklahoma and the University of Tulsa began making his mark at the age of 22 when he opened Sooner Pipe.
Years later, he and his wife, Anne, made giving back a priority by funding the Anne and Henry Zarrow foundation of Tulsa.
The foundation helps with education, homelessness and poverty.
In Tulsa, that meant helping The Tulsa Day Center For The Homeless and providing funds for Zarrow International, a Tulsa Public School.
For over 45 years, Mr. Zarrow also served on the board of St. Francis Hospital.
Most recently, the Henry Zarrow Center For Art and Education opened in the Brady District.
With the name comes a reminder of a lasting legacy of a Tulsa businessman and philanthropist.
