Dr Farr and the staff of Sheppard AFB Hospital literally saved my patients life. When I was a young dentist at Reese AFB, Lubbock Texas, an elderly patient presented to sick call after experiencing an audible pop after chewing. An xray revealed a large radioluscency (hole) at the angle of the jaw with a tooth (third molar) in it. Their was literally no bone left supporting his lower jaw! I referred him to Dr Farr at Sheppard, who then referred him to the anesthesia service who then referred him to Cardiology. Cardiology discovered blockages in four coronary arteries and four stents later he was ready to have his dentigerous cyst treated. I saw the grateful patient about 18 months later and he had nothing but kind words for Dr Farr and the Sheppard Staff.

I am saddened by Steve’s passing. We were 20 year neighbors in Wichita Falls, on Indian Heights Blvd. Jan and I had many a game night with Steve and Trish. We had many common interests. One was hunting. We sat in a deer blind together one evening , I think about 1990, when a nice buck, 8 or 10 point, came into view and eventually within range. Steve made a nice lung shot at about 250 yards. I was impressed. I am not sure but I think it was his first Texas deer.
He was a good neighbor, we helped each other many times, and was one of the last people we said good-by to when we moved away.
Truly a good guy.
