A bench in Blair’s honor

Published April 11, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

A new bench at Heart Lake, dedicated to James Blair McCallum. The plaque reads: “An amazing husband, dad, brother, son, papa and friend. Devoted and accomplished in every aspect of life. So much to live for — gone too soon. We will love you always and forever. From all your family and friends.”

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
