As a fellow faculty member and the TAMU Quarterback Club during the tenure of Emory Bellard, I well remember the meetings each week. RJ Hodges, Hank Mills, Jack and I usually sat at the same table along with Bob Wright, the academic counselor for the team. We had a great time. One year the Runkles invited a bunch of us to celebrate a victory in our first home game. The group gathered and as I remember had a good time, even though the Aggies were outscored in a game they were supposed to win. Jack was a very fine man, dedicated to his profession, family, friends and church. It was a pleasure to have known him and to be in his presence from time to time. Such good memories! Murray Milford

On behalf of the Staten family, I want to offer my condolences. I remember that mom and dad (Betty and Raymond Staten) spoke so fondly of Jack. Certainly dad enjoyed working with him in the Soil & Crops department. Please know that our prayers are with your family.

I remember Dr. Runkles and his family when he was here in College Station. What a wonderful and accomplished man. Dear Marcia, you and I went to A&M Consolidated High School together. My prayers are with you and your family. Love, Cheri Holland Bridges, College Station, Texas.

Dr. Runkles was a professor of mine and on my PhD committee. Above all he was a friend, an inspiration, and always offered a hand to help you up. He helped many students. But his work on water conservation for Texas and the US was a passion. I always enjoyed my visits with him because I came away encouraged. I know he adored his family and his was proud of the ranch. I admired him greatly!
