TULSA, Oklahoma -

Dozens gathered on Wednesday night to remember a Tulsa business owner who died after trying to break up a fight on Sunday.

Family, friends, employees and supporters prayed and shared how much 56-year-old Frank Valdes meant to them.

Valdes moved from Cuba to Miami, Florida in the 1980s and then to Tulsa to work in aviation.

Valdez eventually opened Miami Nights nightclub to share his passion of tropical music and cuisine.

Police Arrested Ramon Garcia-Ibarra, who they say is one of the two people who assaulted Valdes. Officers also arrested Jose Ledesma-Hernandez and say he tried to run over a security guard during the fight.

Investigators are looking for a third man who was involved in the attack.
