This was my cousin that was killed today, I cant explain the hurt I feel for his wife Lisa, his mom, his brothers and the rest of our family . I love you all and have you in our prayers. This is a death that could have been prevented with a little caution and respect for road workers, even if it was a medical condition, the person should not have been driving! RIP Ira Lee, we love you!

My thought exactly, I looked at his Facebook page and he said he got a ticket on Nov. 4 or going 69 in a 40, he should never of been on the streets and maybe my cousin would still be here!!

Ok, Angie and DJB! If you wanna blame someone, blame the City of Glenpool. Check it, my lil bro was with Deven the night before and Deven was blacking out so my bro didn't have a license but decided to drive, to save someone's life, and got pulled over and was taken to jail for driving with no license. And then what happens next; someone gets killed. I'm sorry for your loss, but my bro explained over and over to the arresting officer of Glenpool Police Department that he was blacking out from being diabetic so stfu before you start talking shit about a kid you don't even know. And if you must know, this kid is beating himself up and feels like shit because he knows this man had and family. Thanks for your time! Deuces!

This kid is not a responsible human or diabetic. To be blacking out the night before so that someone else had to drive & get arrested...and then he gets behind the wheel again; probably w/o checking with a doctor or even checking his blood sugar. I hope that he does feel bad and I hope that he has to answer for his actions. Perhaps community service picking up trash on the same highway where he took the life of a good man because of stupidity!

Whatever happened, a man is dead and his family mourns. Whoever was driving, whoever was responsible will have to live with this terrible knowledge the rest of his life.

I just pray that you all will be able to come to the place in Jesus where you can find peace and forgiveness. This is important, because if you can't forgive, neither can you be forgiven. Maybe you can't do that now, but at least pray for it, and pray for both families. My utmost condolences and heartfelt sympathies and prayers for all of you.

Please don't fight and put sorrow on top of sorrow.

Irresponsible actions regardless of claimed contributing factors. And the excuse for receiving stolen property is...what?

Your post says everything I need to know about him and you. It's always someone else's fault. Ira's family is grieving their loss. Don't add to it with your stupid explanations. Your 'lil bro' broke the law, regardless of why. Just like Deven killed Ira, regardless of why. Ira's family has to deal with losing him, the same as Deven will have to deal with being the one who killed him. God forgives, and people can, too. But we need time to mourn and grieve. So, are you like twelve? STFU? Really? And by the way, deuce means two. I believe you meant douce. Infant.

Short and sweet. Deven Franklin has no idea what he took from this world. What he took from this family. The light he took by his actions.
Iam sure he soon will. May the charges be filed and my he rott in in the oklahoma department of corrections. His criminal record up to this point says it all. Thieft, drugs, a real benifit to sociaty. Just like those who would stand up for his actions.
Rest in piece Ira, knowing justice will be done.

STFU! Really? The Glenpool police are responsible Deven Franklin killing a man? Sounds like the Glenpool police did their job by arresting someone breaking the law. Deven Franklin CHOSE to get behind the wheel incapacitated. As a diabetic, I am finding it VERY hard to believe Franklin was still passing out after so many hours of continued passing out from his sugar alone...perhaps, the alcohol or other substances had more to do with this! Here's the reality....there isn't any place in the world Franklin needed to be in the condition he was in which would give him reason to drive causing a very good hard working man to die. Reality check, Stfu, grow up!

Deven Franklin deserves to pay for what he did to Ira, his wife, and all of Ira's family and friends his selfish act of doing drugs,speeding, and more has caught up with him. And blaming the Glenpool police is just a shitty way of taking up for the "waste of human skin" - FINALLY he is off the road and cannot hurt another family the way he has Ira's. JUSTICE FOR IRA WE ALL LOVE AND MISS YOU
