Every year around St Patrick's Day my memory returns to one of the best friends I have ever had, who died too soon, and who might be outraged at what appears to be happening today to his most enduring legacy, the Alaska Permanent Fund PFD payout. He didn’t cause it to happen alone, but the Permanent Fund corporate board room at the Juneau headquarters was named after Hugh Malone on April 30, 2001, and his presence must be felt during every meeting there since.

|It was almost always difficult to get a good picture |
of Hugh Malone but we had good times on my boat!
|Hugh and I pulled our share of dungeness and king crab in the waters around Juneau.|
Hugh Malone died while on vacation in Italy March 8, 2001 at age 57. It came as a great shock to me at a time when I was working as a substitute teacher while earning my teaching certificate in Juneau schools. He had encouraged me in this pursuit.
