I just found out this evening, that Dr. Ed O'Rourke passed away, peacefully, on Sunday, November 11, 2012 in Baton Rouge.
I thought y'all would want to know.
His obituary can been seen at johnsonfuneralhome.com
We get the Baton Rouge paper, but I don't usually look at those obituaries. A friend, David Lavergne, called me to let me know. There wasn't a photo of him in the paper--Wish there had been.
Rest in peace, Dr. O'Rourke and thank you for leaving such a great legacy of your fig trees here for us.
