I graduated from The University in 1966. I was in a foursome in a golf tournament at Harlingen Country Club with Coach Royal. He helped us have a good time and was such a gentleman. He did not tell a lot of stories as he was interested in our business and families. Tom Landry was also at the tournament. I am blessed to have a picture of the two of them in my office. Coach Royal will always be remembered by all of us who knew him.

Darrell and Edith,

You have given much to me as student in 1958-63 and I will never forget the fight in your Longhorn teams. It was years later that I came to appreciate your wisdom and value to the Longhorn nation. May you rest in peace and enjoy your retirement in heaven. With much love, Mike Dougherty Class of 1963

Thank you or being a good football coach and a role model for our youth. Know your outstanding work at UT was appreciated. I went to your first football game in 1957. I was a knot hole member when at Lamar Junior High in Austin, Texas, and I got in for the price of 50 cents, I never missed a game. I still have the card that was punched out when you went into the north end zone seats, Memorial stadium had a capacity of 66,000. I still remember Rene Ramirez running the wishbone. I never missed a game, oh, the changes I have seen at UT. Well done coach, now take a well deserved rest. UT class of 67

I had the plesure to meet "Coach" at several events as I accompanied my nephew, Earl Campbell. I treasure his kind comments and admire his character. It was indeed a plesure to have met him, and I offer our sincere sympathy to his family and the Longhorn Nation on his passing.
