Comments Off on Thomas Randall (“Randy”) Lankford dies at 69
We learned this week of the recent passing of Brother Roger Davidson.
Roger was well known and loved by brothers of every generation.
Brother Alan Haworth reflected, “I remember, Roger came down in the summer of ’07 and helped us paint the house. I think he was 83 at the time. Flew down from Colorado to be there, helping rebuild the house. He was also John Tower’s roommate and best friend. He was at the Tower tree dedication in the early ‘90s when the Tower library was dedicated. Roger was a great man, a faithful brother, and steadfast in his dedication to Kappa Sigma. He will be missed but never forgotten!”

Brothers and friends,

Austin: Thursday, July 22, 2010. 10:00 am, University Christian Church, at UT (see UPDATED II above)
Houston: Saturday, July 24, 2010. 10:00 am, George H. Lewis & Sons funeral home
Bruce requested a wake. Bruce’s 60th birthday bash was at a beer hall in Austin. Maybe a similar bash would be appropriate. When it gets cooler. Like September. Seriously.
We are looking for pictures of Bruce for photo boards to be displayed at the funerals. If you have some, please email them to this address ASAP.
Bruce deserves to honored in the same way that he insisted his deceased brothers were honored. He will get that, and more.
When details are confirmed it will be passed on.
Southwestern Kappa Sigma alumnus, Richard Arnold Woods, Class of 1963, died December 11, 2007.
The fraternity extends its sympathy to Richard’s classmates, friends, and loved ones.
