A memorial service for Anacortes native Pat Mooney will be held January 28 at Anacortes Christian Church. Pat, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, operated Piston Service for many years before he retired in 1999. He and his wife Betty, also a Marine Corps veteran, were active in the community as volunteers with organizations including the Salvation Army. He also served as a commissioner with the Port of Anacortes.
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.
