October 22, 2012 "My dad, Vilbry White was a former teammate at UT in the '40s. The two of them remained close friends until Vilbry passed away at age 84, a couple of months ago. It always struck me how quiet and unassuming Slater was, given his previous fame in the sports world. He and my dad seemed to care about each other like brothers.

I was fortunate to have accompanied my dad and Slater at the luncheon at UT celebrating the occasion of the retirement of Slater's jersey. As a UT basketball season ticket holder, I have smiled proudly when the video screen flashes his photo during the montage of great UT basketball moments. I also make a point of revering the 1947 banner at every game. This year will be especially poignant, now that both Slater and Vilbry are in heaven.

May Slater's family find great comfort in knowing the wonderful impact he had on so many people throughout his life." - Lesa Moller (Austin, TX)
