I am deeply saddened to report that former Western Region Commodore Glen Meskimen passed away on November 21st from cancer. Glen’s memorial will be December 3rd at 1100 at Butterworth Arthur A Wright Chapel, 520 W. Raye Street, Seattle, Washington. Dress uniforms are encouraged.
Glen Meskimen was the model Sea Scout who dedicated his life to the love of the sea and Scouting. Glen was a quintessential profile in service to Sea Scouts. He was never afraid to help Scouting overcome challenging situations, whether it was as a skipper or commodore. Glen will be missed by many.
I ask all Sea Scout Ships in the Western Region to strike eight bells on December 3, 2016 at 1100 PST to remember Commodore Meskimen.
Yours in Scouting,
Western Region Sea Scout Commodore
