Dennis and I became close friends while attending The University of Texas Law School. He was a leader then and throughout his life. He remained a close personal friend with both of us living in Lubbock. I enjoyed several canoe trips with Dennis down the Rio Grande. They turned out to be great adventures. He is a friend that will be greatly missed.

Dennis was highly intelligent, quick witted and a talented attorney. He was a good friend and we appreciated his advice and enjoyed his company on many occasions including a delightful Caribbean cruise. We had hoped to get to see him this summer. We will miss him.
