Brad,
I just learned your parents had died. I'm so sorry. I kept in touch with them since Bob and I, Julie, Amy and Karl left Rolla for Texas in 1964.

Bob and your dad were grad students together for 5 years, and your mom and I spent plenty of time together too. I remember you and Kathy as little kids. I still remember how your family went winter camping, remember your place in the country that suited your family so well.

I will be in Rolla for Virginia Govier's celebration of life in April. We spent time with her in the summer of 1914 when our family reunion was at Cobblestone Lodge. My whole family loved her, valued the times we were able to visit.

When I went to Rolla for the interview that led to my being selected as Dean of the School of Mines and Metallurgy, Gerry was detailed to take me to dinner on my first night. As you might guess, he was a convivial host who discovered that we had a mutual admiration for good Scotch. From that hospitable meal up until the time that we left Rolla for retirement, Gerry was always a good friend and a genial fellow. As long as she was able, Betty Rupert was a good friend to my wife, Priscilla. He was an asset to UMR/MST. Lee Saperstein ([email protected])

My sincere condolences to Kathie and Brad on your Dad's passing.
He was a terrific teacher and friend to legions of students, and was my graduate studies mentor. After enjoying an introductory geophysics course from him (Geophysics 285), I switched my graduate program from geology to geophysics. It was through him that my NSF fellowship funds were made available. He became my advisor on the MS and joined my committee for the PhD after all of you returned from the posting at Western Geophysical in Milan. After graduation, when jobs were scarce, he was responsible for getting me a 6-month post-doc in George Clark's Rock Mechanics outfit. (Funny side note: When George got white lab coats for all the staff, Jerry suggested they have "Clark's Meat Market" printed on the back.)
Your Dad was so important in setting me up for a successful and fun career in the oil industry. I could never thank him enough.
We stayed in touch over the years....Jerry stayed at my house in Oakland, CA on occasion when he was conducting a training course....and I always enjoyed visiting with your Mom and him whenever I returned to Rolla. Often his good buddy Dave Summers would join us at your house for a few cold ones.
Your Dad was a remarkable person. May he rest in peace.

Brad,

I remember that wonderful Sunday when your parents and my parents met at your photography show at Central Methodist College. What a joy to recall! It was a memorable day for us and I remember your parents fondly. God bless and keep you and Gerald and Mildred always!

Love,
Marcia Pfost Lewis
