Don L. Rives, former Board of Regents member

Don L. Rives, 80, a former member of UNT’s Board of Regents, died March 27 at his home in Austin.

Rives graduated summa cum laude from North Texas State College, now UNT, in 1956 with a double major in government and history. He went on to receive his juris doctor from the University of Texas Law School and was admitted to the State Bar of Texas in 1959.

He served as the assistant district attorney for Harrison County in 1959 specializing in real estate and probate law. As a member of the Constitutional Revision Committee of Texas, Rives was appointed to help rewrite the Texas State Constitution. In 1974, he moved to Austin to serve as executive assistant to Lt. Gov. William P. Hobby.  

He returned to his alma mater when Gov. Ann Richards appointed him to serve on UNT’s Board of Regents from 1992 to 1997. He later was appointed to the UNT Athletic Council.

He is survived by his wife, Pat Rives, one brother, four children and seven grandchildren.
