Dennis Mahar first joined LMTAAA in 1979, and became the Executive Director of the agency in 1982. Under his leadership, the agency grew from just a few employees, to 60 employees, with offices in three counties. In addition to serving as the Executive Director for LMT, Dennis also touched many lives in our local communities by serving with the Thurston County Food Bank, United Way of Thurston County, Puget Sound Senior Games, W4A, and many more. To the community, he was a strong and generous advocate for seniors and those with disabilities. To his staff, he was a caring and trusted leader, who shared with us his love of sports, politics, and his great sense of humor . We will miss him for a very long time.
