It is with much sadness that I report the recent death of MMWD’s Board President, Alex Forman. Alex had been diagnosed with cancer in 2005, and had been receiving treatment since then. Alex passed away on July 9, 2009.
The following article from the Marin Independent Journal provides an excellent review of Alex’s life:
Alex was a dedicated member of MMWD’s Board of Directors, having been elected on a pro-conservation platform in 2000. Alex served as President of the Board in 2004 and again this year, and was an active member of both the Watershed Committee and the Water Conservation Citizen’s Advisory Committee. He was also a regular participant in the Tomales Bay Watershed Council meetings, serving as MMWD’s liaison to that group.
Alex will be remembered for his passion for meteorology and for hiking and bicycling the trails of MMWD’s watershed on Mount Tamalpais. He always had respect for his fellow Board members, MMWD staff and for his constituents. We will miss him greatly.
