On April 19, 1995, a truck bomb shattered the lives of many Oklahomans when it ripped away the north side of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City. Everyone who died in the tragedy was someone. Maybe they were a wife, a husband, a son, a daughter, a co-worker,a friend. They all have a story. These biographical sketches represent an attempt to honor the 168 men, women and children who lost their lives in the explosion. The information was gathered by staff writers at The Oklahoman after interviewing family, friends and co-workers.
