David Skoug was Johnny's best friend and mentor for the last 44 years. The beginning was when Dave admitted Johnny to the mathematics graduate program at UNL in 1977. Over the course of 4 years, Dave taught Johnny in a few graduate classes, and they frequently talked about math and family. Dave took Johnny to his first January joint math meetings in 1981, and they even roomed together. That ritual became an annual tradition for them for many years - reuniting at the January joint math meetings. For 10 of the last 12 years, Dave and Muriel and Darlene and Johnny continued the tradition of attending the January joint math meetings and enjoying fellowship with at least one major dinner--the highlight of each year for Darlene and Johnny. Dave will be dearly missed. With deepest sympathy, Johnny and Darlene Henderson
