Wayman was an American professional basketball player in the NBA, a smooth jazz bass guitarist and a beloved Tulsan. He is lovingly remembered for his personal warmth in giving back to the community. A three-time All American at the University of Oklahoma, Tisdale was elected to the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009.
In 2009, the Wayman Tisdale Foundation formed to provide funding to individuals and organizations for obtaining and maintaining prosthetic devices to improve the quality of life for amputees throughout Oklahoma and the United States.
