We are deeply saddened by the loss of Lewis County Commissioner Gary Stamper.
Gary served on the Lewis Mason Thurston Area Agency governing board from 2015 - 2020. He was elected chair in 2019. Among many other notable contributions, Gary’s service with the LMTAAA helped create jobs, supported Veteran Directed Home Services, and helped expand home meal delivery programs for the aging population and people living with disabilities. He also supported a Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program that enabled those vulnerable populations to buy nutritious, locally grown products, thereby sustaining local and family owned farms.
Gary’s kindness and friendship will be greatly missed. We are deeply grateful for his leadership and support of our work. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family, friends, and communities. May the flame he left in the incalculable number of hearts he touched glow ever brighter in his memory.
