Yes, Overton lives here in Austin. All I have seen or heard about him has been admirable.

Looks like he passed away yesterday at the age of 112. RIP.

I was in Alaska for three weeks, then here in Florida for Christmas and New Years. Yet, from a distance I feel as though a positive presence has begun to fade from my home town of Austin.
