I’ll join others in celebrating the life of Don Moos. I didn’t know him well but I did have a unique opportunity to be with him for three days at Domke Lake for a time of fishing and conversation.

During the years I served as Holden Village Manager I enjoyed regular trips to Domke Lake. Dr. Leo Bustad, Dean of the School of Veterinary Medicine at WSU was one of the regular fishing partners. Don Moos was a friend of Leo’s and was invited to join us for a trip in the late 1970’s. Dr. Rudy Edmund was another fishing partner who was the champion fly fisherman. Rudy was a geologist, corporate executive and teacher. Rudy was the most important member of the team since we knew fresh Trout would always be available for breakfast and dinner with Rudy in the group.

We would rent one of the cabins at Domke, a couple of the boats and spend three days enjoying the beauty of Domke Lake, the abundance of Trout as well as great fish fries and stimulating conversations.  For me the conversations were the most important.

It was an honor to have Don Moos with us on one trip. The first thing that impressed me was Don’s humility and his depth of understanding of government and politics. He also had a keen insight into the general human condition. Although I briefly visited with Don on several occasions following the fishing trip it was these three days at Domke that provided a unique opportunity to get acquainted with and enjoy the fellowship of one of the unique servants in Washington State.
