|Don Moreland, left, with his partner Tad.|
It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I want to let you know that our dear member, friend and icon of social justice, Don Moreland, passed away Saturday, January 7th. There is no one who was kinder and always ready to lend a hand than Don. He was gentle in approach but steadfast in his commitment to making the world a better place for us all. His pride as a gay man, military veteran, grass roots organizer and staunch advocate for the LGBT, senior and aging communities was an inspiration to us all. At this time, there is no funeral or memorial scheduled but there may be a memorial planned somewhere down the road.
We send our deepest sympathy to his dear partner Tad and other family members.
We all have many Don stories that I hope we will share with each other so that Don's legacy continues to inspire us to work for equality.
