In Memoriam of Bill Painter

Bill Painter

We honor Bill, who hiked Badger Mountain more than 2300 times, forging a path with his family and friends, often training for bigger climbs, long before there was an official trail. Bill climbed many high peaks and achieved numerous ascents of Mount Rainier, the last at age 84, still the record as the oldest person to summit that mountain.

Contributions to Friends of Badger Mountain in memory of Bill will be acknowledged on the website in total amount once they have all been received.  Thank you.
