    This really makes me sad to read. I was fortunate to meet Doc at the Lonestar Roundup a number of years ago.
    For any of his friends and family that may read this, I send my condolences and I'm very sorry that cancer is what ultimately took him from your lives.
  5. Like many have said here, I didn't know Doc either. But, he sounds like the kind of guy you would want for an uncle, friend or next door neighbor. People like him are becoming a rare breed in this mixed up world we live in today.
    So sorry to hear of his passing. My deepest condolences to his family and dear friends (@Ryan). He will be missed by many.
    Vaya con Dios Doc..........E
  6. Could someone post a pic of Doc? I didn't know him but it's important that we don't stay anonymous, especially in death.

    It’s amazing how many unassuming great people on the hamb.
    Standing in the shadows with nothing but love for the next fellow who requires it. Doc… one of the greats. A good example for all of us.
    For those close to him my deepest condolences.

    Hated opening this thread. So sorry to read this. I knew from his posts that he was a special, special guy. The world needs more Docs. RIP to a good man.

    My god!
    Remember when we all anti-ed in for HAMB Andy's 2-door?
    And how Doc. Stepped up to the plate, big-time.
    Generous to a fault!

    Been trying to find a pic or so when i met him and saw him at many of the early Round Ups.....
    no luck yet....
    Man. this is really bothering me.He certainly was a patron of many of the Hamb older Friday Art show regulars.He was always buying Norms hand carved skulls and was very concerned about Norm before his tragic passing..Doc was a such a fine man.
  16. I only knew Doc from his posts on the H.A.M.B., but he seemed a very honest, caring and generous man.

    As I never had the opportunity to meet or know Doc, I agree 100% that threads like this should be honored with a photo and a link to his profile so we can catch up with those we were not fortunate enough to meet in real life.

    Thanks for everyone you helped, Doc: in the operating room or in the garage.

    A HAMB legend for sure.
    We can all learn from his example.
    Condolences to all that knew and loved him.

    When my wife and I lost our oldest Son Cody in a car crash in January '08, Doc was one of hundreds that reached out with comfort.
    I lost my Son Cody and my HAMB family needs to hear my thoughts | The H.A.M.B. (

    "I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. As a father, I can only imagine the pain that you are going through. I'm praying for you and your family.


    He went even further in a donation to help us. I never have forgot everyone's kindness and prayers in one of my darkest times.
    For those of us that have been here for 20 years now, this is truly a family.

    In August of 2019, we sadly lost our 2nd oldest Son Cort at the age of 36.

    Doc and God Blessed and Prayed for many folks, and we are grateful to have known him through our HAMB family.

    God Bless you Doc.

    I’m on a bit of an expedition at the moment and have spotty internet. In fact, I can only hear part of the voicemail mark left me and can’t read many of the replies here. But I have a sinking feeling I forgot something or someone in my post. If I did, please forgive… or maybe I’m just stressing out as it’s super important to me that mark and doc’s family realize what doc meant to this joint.
  23. Such a great man. God must be proud.
    RIP, Doc.

    Never met Doc. but always enjoyed his posts and point of view. It doesn't surprise me that he had kindness and gereosity in abundance as most of the medical types I know have that same trait. That's why they go into that line of work. Great stories have been told about the man, wished I had met him.

    It seems that these announcements are being posted way too frequently and the realization that time is speeding up and I'm only 65 gets me in a down mood. I guess we all should try to emulate Doc. and others like him. I've met a lot of great people in my life but I can count on one hand the number of "true gentlemen" as Jeff mentioned.

    Thanks for letting us know @Ryan.
