While a Debater at the University of Houston between 1967 and 1970, Rusty McMeans had come out of the Big Red Debate Machine created by Dr. William English and had gone into the U.H. Law School. Rusty remained active with the Debate Squad. I had the good fortune to be tutored by this genius and, when we traveled in a Big Red Oldsmobile Vista Cruizer, we took turns reading to him from his beloved law books while he drove us to and from our destination. It was during that time that he shared his infectious enthusiasm for The Law with all of us in that car. It's why I chose to go to law school. Thank you, Rusty.

Rusty, Lee Ware and I had some great times, fine wine and cigars at Brennan's in Houaton on many occasions and he will be greatly missed.

I first met Rusty at a State Bar CLE program in the early 1980s. Fresh out of college, I was working for the Bar as a meeting planner, and on this particular morning the person who was to welcome the distinguished panel did not arrive. A keen observer, Rusty sensed my anxiety and in his large, yet comforting voice, said "Don't worry, I'll introduce the speakers." A small gesture in his eyes, I'm sure, but a huge, lasting gesture in my eyes. Rusty gave many gifts to many people, but his greatest gift was that of himself.

Having worked at the State Bar of Texas for 21 years, I had the opportunity and privilege of working with Rusty numerous times on CLE programs involving the practice of appellate law. He was one of those lawyers with an extraordinary ability to teach enabling him to share and pass on his vast knowledge of the law to those lawyers who were eager to learn from the master. On countless occasions following his stimulating lectures, lawyers would gather around him to further draw on his vast array of expertise in the practice of appellate law. These many scenes were commonly referred to as "Rusty holding court". He was the best and stands tall as an aspiring example of dedication to the profession of law -- a legacy, indeed!
