06-23-2017 - BILL DISMUKES REMEMBERED BY JACK KUSHNER
We were sad to hear of the passing of our classmate Bill Dismukes. Here are some thoughts from Jack Kushner as he remembers Bill.
RR

Probably like all of you, I have been sad all day since I heard the news about Bill. I knew this day would come and that he was no longer of sound mind, but still memories went round and round in my head. I still remember meeting him on the football field  when we played for Capital Chevrolet. We were going to Baldwin at that time in the 8th grade. During the summer we both were counselors at the Rotary YMCA camp outside of Wetumpka. At Lanier we ran against each other for class officers, but we were in the same class for Latin. Bill went on to Vanderbilt and I went to Tulane. We met up again in medical school, but then went our separate ways as he went to Boston and I went to Washington D.C. Upon my return from Viet-Nam, I saw him again prior to starting a Neurosurgery Residency. Later we communicated by telephone about various things and met again when he was in B'Ham. I lectured at the UAB twice and he was always in attendance. Last saw him at a Lanier reunion in Montgomery and although he knew who I was, the conversation was very limited. All of our lives have been diminished by his death as Bill was a good physician. He will be missed as he certainly made a contribution to medicine in Alabama. I think this is one of the reasons the reunions in Montgomery have been successful. I plan to return in the Spring to Montgomery.  Jack Kushner
