I had the honor of being taught by the Judge in 1997 as one of 25 teachers in Florida to be invited to the sesquicentennial aniversary of the Court in Tallahassee. He was a brilliant lecturer and his efforts to educate others about the Supreme Court are commendable. Years later when he moved to Oak Hammock, we crossed paths through a mutuaL friend. He was indeed an accomplished and humble man who lived with panache. Dignified, friendly, and wise, he was a pleasure to be around.
