I have a lot of respect for this man and am deeply saddened by everyone's loss. Mr. Rankin coached me in football back in the early 80's and also gave me my first job at his restaurant in Boulder where I learned to be a great BBQ and Steak cook. I have nothing but many fond memories of Mr. Rankin and am saddened to hear of him passing away. RIP Coach, Friend and Mentor!

I just returned from trip to Greece and heard that my roommate at a Texas a Tech David Rankin was gone! I am so sorry for his family and wished I could have been in country for the Funeral. I am praying for his family. Roomed almost 3 years I could share all kinds of stories. Ronnie Mc

Dear Mel,
Your Dad was a good friend when we both were at Raider Ranch.
I was so sad to hear of hiss passing, I am truly. Sorry for your loss. I will miss him. So many people here at the ranch liked him and enjoyed his movies. Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future. Much love Mel.

David, you were the best friend a girl could have ever had so many years ago. You changed the direction of my life. You had great faith in me. I have thought about you often and every year on your birthday and whenever I make Wrangler 2 BBQ Sauce. Rest In Peace Friend. Love you.
