    I’m sorry to hear about Dr Maxey, but am so pleased that I was honored to have known him as a patient , friend , and Rotary Club fellow. He always had something interesting to share when he came to my office and challenged my thinking many times. He was a gentleman and a gentle man, and I am sure he will be missed by his family.

    I am so sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. We were Rotarians together for the last 25 years or so, and so I saw him several times a month, sometimes sitting with him at our lunch meetings to catch up. Ed was a brilliant and disciplined gentleman of strong principles. When the V.A. hospital where he worked insisted he practice in medical areas outside his justly earned accreditation as a surgeon, in behalf of the veterans he was serving he opposed that decision which he believed was driven by financial concerns, not concerns for the medical best interests of the patients. We carried that objection all the way to the United States Supreme Court. In fact it was the only case in 40 years of law practice I presented to that court. Ed also had a very deep concern about the effect of high voltage power lines on health. He became extremely well informed in that complex, developing, and contentious area of technology, and provided me much expert assistance in a case I had which involved the effect of such lines on adjoining property. Once, when he was in his 80′s, he told me he did 50 pushups everyday as part of his regimen to stay physically and mentally fit. I was astounded, because I was about 25 years younger, and probably not able to do 50 pushups at all. So thereafter that became one of my standards greetings to Ed, “you still doing your 50 pushups per day?” He was. I’ll miss him. Please accept my sincere condolences. Jack Butt
