John B. Danna, Jr. spoke so highly & fondly of the days he spent working with Overton at Beran & Shelmire. John was always delighted to be invited to the famous Christmas office parties after he left the firm.

John & I considered him to be a true Dallas gentleman.

He hired me out of architecture school. I have so many fond memories of that time, even when I was helping him type his book at the front desk! Being the odd bird I am, I liked to type. He would come up to me after the 70xth time with marked-up chapters, pieces of paper, white-out and cut-outs, then grin and say, "just a few little things..." It was before computers, and I didn't know how to talk him into getting a "word processor." He would often remind me how I designed the front desk. He was such a wonderful man. He had a profound impact on my life, introduced me to incredible experiences and people & memories I hope to never forget. I still have a card he gave me to go on my first trip to New York City with $2 bills in it! I never could bring myself to spend the funny $2 bills in the card so they became a part of my travel gear, and me. All of his wonderful stories. I would just look at him and say, "how do you remember all of that detail?!!" Incredible I'm so sorry to know he is no longer with us, especially for his family. I have never met another man like him. Rest in peace, dear Overton, and let perpetual light shine upon you.

An enormous loss for Texas, Dallas, and all who knew him.
A true southern gentleman, with a quick wit, a myriad of talents, and a fine family.
Claire and Day, very sorry for your loss, and I know that your memories will bring many smiles.
