My name is Debbie Gotchef, my husband is Tom Haak. Our son is Benjamin Haak. He was living in Bellingham and had a fatal fall on Sauk mountain on October 18th, 2017 on a solo hike. He would have been 21 on the 14th. He loved backpacking, hiking, skiing, and sailing and just about any activity outside. Discover Park was a favorite family spot since he was a baby. He had his 3rd birthday party there, and participated in the Discovery Park Nature Day camp many times when he was a boy. We spent many hours as a family in the park, riding bikes, throwing the football, climbing trees, and exploring. His sister, Ellery Haak is 18, and also loves the park. She has been bringing her new puppy, Hansa, there every week since we got her in November (she is our grief pup:)).
