Hal Pelton

Dear NWGS members,

It is with great sadness to report the loss of a wonderful NWGS member.

Hal Pelton, long-time NWGS member and retired Seattle Central Community College geology instructor, passed away on August 4. Hal attended many of our NWGS meetings, and there are probably at least a few members and other local geologists who took classes from him.

There will be a memorial gathering on August 25. If anyone would like to attend, they can contact the family at the email address listed in the obituary below for more information.


With heartfelt condolences,
