    Heard about it on the radio yesterday and used it to preach to my son again. Control your speed and be extra careful on rainy days.

    It was a shame. He had no chance if you look at the photos of the suburban!

    Can you belive how all the people who work for him feel today?

    they are all going to have to find new jobs.

    If you think about it, he affected a large number of people's lives who were counting on him!

    I didn't know much about in a professional sense, other than that he was a Houston lawyer. I do drive by his ranch SW of San Marcos all the time and can say it is probably one of the most beautiful in the entire hill country. The area along Fulton Ranch Rd. where the hills transition down into Blanco river bottom looks like something off a postcard. He owns a ton of land out there by any standards, let alone the hill country where most tracts are smaller. A lot of sweat went into acquiring all that, it's really unfortunate he won't get to enjoy it in retirement.

    John was never going to retire. He loved what he did, to say he was driven is an understatement.

    Yikes! He was driving almost 80 down Allen Parkway in the rain. This goes to show you what a momentary lapse in judgment can get you. Cars are not built to take a side impact like that, and had they hit the tree head-on, they probably would have lived. RIP.
