Dr. Dexter Johnson was an internationally recognized radiologist born December 6, 1931 and died February 4, 2003. He graduated from the University of Washington medical school. He began as a general practice physician in Lynden plus residency time on the medical staff at the old State mental hospital in Sedro Woolley. He did a residency in radiology at Mayo's and practiced in Montana for several years until moving back to Seattle. We were close friends who both worked on purse seine fishing boats in Puget Sound and Alaska while going to college. He married a woman who lived a block away from my family home in Anacortes and lived in Anacortes for a time. We remained close friends until his death. He was a talented, bright and compassionate physician as well as a good friend whom I miss.
Harwood (Bill) Alexander Bannister, 95, passed away on February 9, 2010 in Burlington, Washington. Bill was my law partner for many years and my mentor who taught me not just about the law, but about the importance of being an ethical lawyer. He was a lawyer's lawyer, known for his high standards of ethics and brilliant mind. Bill, Stan Bruhn and I, along with Bill's wife, Nancy, were law partners for many years. I owe so much to him for my training and for his patience in tolerating a wild young trial lawyer. He was admired as well as respected by all who knew him. I'm proud to have been associated with Bill in the practice of law.
