In a statement, law school Dean Valerie Couch said Conger was an asset to the school and would be missed.

“Bill was a force, not only for his clients whom he represented with enthusiasm and passion, but also for the hundreds of students who were fortunate to learn the values of the legal profession from his perspective,” Couch said. “He was a longtime and very dear friend of mine, and there are no words to describe his loss to me personally or to our law school that he loved. Bill touched people, and he will be deeply missed.”

Conger is survived by his wife, Sherry; their three daughters, Christen Conger, Jennifer Bentley and Erin Welch; and three grandchildren, Parker and Julianne Bentley and Vivian Welch.

A memorial service will be at 2 p.m. Monday at the Bishop W. Angie Smith Chapel at Oklahoma City University.
