Becky, Danny and Bryan & all the other Dessauer family. Herb was a great guy, husband, dad, grand dad, brother & my cousin. I always admired his brain and great interests in science. He told me he preferred being out in the swamps or jungles to being the boss at LSU biochem. Arguing about leave, promotions or assignments was not as much fun as in the field. We shared a great interest in reptiles and my brother, Willie & I brought him specimens many times. His middle name is "Clay", same as mine. We inherited the name from our common grandfather, Harry Hill Patin, who named my dad's middle name Clay and I am Jr. Herb's mom, Shirley, put the Clay in his name. I recall discusions with Herb on genetics long before the discovery of DNA. Herb was brilliant and I loved talking with him. He was also a great Marathon runner and ran at least annually. God bless Herb & all his family. Herb told me life is a journey. Well now you've gone on far ahead. Rest well my dear cousin, Love, Harold
