In Memory of George Trigaux
George Arille Trigaux, one of the founders of Save the Scenic Santa Ritas and a member of its original Board of Directors, died on May 29, at the age of 83 after a long struggle with cancer. George, was an avid birder, lover of nature and conservationist, passionate about protecting wildlife habitat. After he retired from business, he and his wife June traveled the world to visit the great birding sites as well as to learn about other cultures and environments. At home, in spite of declining health, he worked steadily to inform people about the devastating impacts open pit mining would have in the Santa Ritas. George tempered his ardor with a gentle, friendly, modest demeanor. His many friends in SSSR will miss his passion and his wisdom.
