Many thanks to the Austill family for coordinating this thoughtful memorial and to Lee Akers for presiding as the master of ceremonies for our past cultural ambassador at the Pioneer Room last night. Fellow broadcasters & journalists, print makers, members of the local HAM radio community, and close friends shared personal and professional stories of encounters with the Dot Man during his remarkable life.

His legacy, immortalized in the series of prints documenting the landmarks and scenes of what will one day soon be celebrated as the downtown historic district, is Miles City's legacy and a gift to us all.

Thank you Joe. You have put into words what I've been thinking since the celebration. I was thinking that Gene Larson, the Austills and Lee Akers show the best side of Miles City, the creativity and the community caring.

For years, I've had people to call when I wanted to talk about 'old stuff.' Johnnie Thomas. Robin Gerber. Mary Haughian. My mom. Gene Larson. None of them are reachable by phone these days.
