Patrick Millegan’s bequest honors Harvey and Betty Manning

Patrick Millegan’s bequest
honors Harvey and Betty Manning
July 7, 2015
Dear Tom,
This note is difficult to write, as it represents the last wishes of my beloved partner and friend, Patrick Millegan. He died just over a year ago while climbing the North Twin Sister, a mountain he dearly loved. He had made the climb at least 6 times in the past.
He was at his happiest in the mountains, and of all the places in the world he explored he had a special passion for his “home” range the North Cascades. This bequest represents his commitment to protecting and preserving that which he so loved. He wished that it be in honor of Harvey & Betty Manning, who were close family friends when he was growing up; their own zest and encouragement of his exploring the outdoors is an inspiration to us all.
Sincerely,
Cyndia


Patrick Millegan’s $25,000 bequest to NCCC will be invested in ongoing advocacy on behalf of the North Cascades.
