The Associated Press - November 26, 2018 3:52 pm

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Daniel Keating, a businessman who served on the Oklahoma Board of Education and was the twin brother of former Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating, has died. He was 74.
Daniel Keating’s son, Matthew Keating, told The Associated Press on Sunday that his father died Saturday in Tulsa. He said that education was very important to his father.
Gov. Mary Fallin, who appointed Daniel Keating to the board of education in 2013, said that as a business executive, he “knew the importance of giving our students the skill-sets they need to succeed in today’s competitive, high-tech economy.”
Keating was vice chairman of Summit Consolidated Group, a national brokerage and insurance company. He was the Oklahoma co-chairman of the Trump for President campaign in 2016.
He also served in Vietnam with the U.S. Marine Corps.
