Vigil honors former Duncan doc, grandson after being gunned down

MARLOW, Okla._ Mourners gathered outside Marlow High School to remember the lives of Dr. Bill Corporon and his grandson, Reat Underwood. The two were gunned down Sunday by a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan outside a Jewish Community Center in Kansas.

Dr. Corporon lived in Marlow until moving to Kansas in 2003 to be closer to family, and he practiced medicine in Duncan. Many of his former patients and close friends were in attendance for the Friday night prayer vigil.

"Whether or not you had money, no matter who you were, he took care of you regardless," says Deanna Mattingly, who attended high school with his daughter Mindy. "He took his doctor's oath seriously."

Mattingly, along with classmates of the Marlow High School class of 1986, organized the candlelight vigil to remember the family on the day Dr. Corporon and his 14-year-old grandson were laid to rest less.

Loved ones, close friends, and supporters remember Dr. Corporon as a caring and passionate family man who loved serving others.

"He was always full of joy," says Naomi Grigg. "He always put the needs of others first. Family and community were very important to him."

"We are shining light up to heaven … hope that it puts a smile on their face and see that they're our guardian angels now, and they'll be watching out for us and we'll be praying for them all the time."

There was a third victim gunned down at a nearby Jewish retirement community. A 73-year-old man was arrested for the crimes and is being charged with first-degree murder.
