This is so heartbreaking.

Several of us were fortunate to come to personally know Dex through riding events on this board, and his generosity and humility matched his formidable talent and skills.

What a great man. So sorry for his family's loss.

I'm sick to my stick. Friend, riding partner, astronaut (3 trips in the shuttle), great husband/father, died in a water ski accident yesterday. I'm still in shock. We rode in two countries and 7 states together. I still can't believe it. Alan Poindexter, you were a good man and may you RIP. This shot was taken on our trip through northern Mexico. Thanks to Jake for letting us know.

This is a shocker. My heart goes out to his family, and especially his son that collided with him. May Dex rest in peace.

I'm so very sorry for the pain you feel David and for that of all the folks here who knew Dex. Thank you for sharing those photos.

That's awful. Condolences to the family


Ladies, if a man says he'll fix something, he will. There's no sense reminding him every 6 months or so.
