It is with great sadness that we report the death of Dax Howard Pass, a colleague and highly esteemed Texas land broker. Dax passed away peacefully today following complications from a heart attack suffered over the weekend. Husband of Caroline Summers and father of three, Dax was a leading broker with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty Ranch and Land and a much-loved member of the Texas land and real estate community.
“Our staff here at Lands of America is shocked and saddened by the loss of our dear friend Dax,” said LAND Magazines publisher Tom Alexander. “Our condolences go to his family and loved ones. Dax was a good man and will be sorely missed. Vaya con Dios, mi amigo.”
With Texas ranching roots that went back six generations, Dax brokered his first land deal in 1995. In the latter part of his career, Dax founded Pass Properties, a real estate brokerage and consulting firm specializing in the sale of ranchland, pasture, agricultural farms, timber, hunting acreage and recreational properties across the southwestern United States.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Dax’s family at this time. Services in his memory will be held on Thursday, September 8 at 3:00 p.m. at Highland Park Presbyterian Church, with a reception to follow at the Dallas Country Club.
