Jon L. Derouen - 1939-2008

In the course of locating lost Brothers, the Alumni Association has learned that our DONS and ATO Brother Jon Derouen passed away on December 20, 2008. Jon, affectionately known as Teddy Bear to his DONS Brothers, was a charter initiate of Zeta Mu when the Chapter was first installed in 1960. The last time most of us saw Jon was at the Silver Circle celebration of Zeta MU in 1985. Jon resided in Hermleigh, Texas, between Sweetwater and Snyder, and was prominent in farming and ranching activities in Scurry County.

Bill Sutherland

I first met Bill Sutherland in 1967 when he pledged our fraternity, ATO, at Sam Houston State.

In a fraternity, you naturally gravitate to people who you relate to and those who share common interests. Bill and I became great friends instantly. Eventually I was in his wedding to Elaine and he traveled to Illinois to be in my wedding to Susie.
