In Memoriam

doveLew Partridge, Chapter 7 Trustee for the Eastern District of California, recently passed away in Rancho Murrieta California on October 3, 2013.  Lew was appointed as a panel trustee on November 19, 2009.  Prior to this Lew worked as a CPA as well as being an accomplished carpenter, he did most of the carpentry work in his home. This included building all of the cabinets in his kitchen.  Lew was preceded in death by his wife Barb and is survived by his 17-year old daughter Samantha. Melanie Patton was Lew’s Account Manager and remembers Lew for his infectious laugh, his kindness, love of family and his two beautiful dogs George and Max.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

David Allard, Chapter 7 Trustee for the Eastern District of Michigan, passed away on October 6, 2013. Based on achievements reflecting the highest standards of professionalism, he was honored with an induction into the American College of Bankruptcy earlier this year. Margaret Yde, David’s Account Manager, remembers him more for his contributions outside the trustee world. David worked with numerous organizations, including Mariners Inn on Cass, which provides occupational training for men recovering from drug addiction. David is survived by his wife, Janice and his  sons – Ryan and Devon. He will be greatly missed, not only by his family, but by the community he so graciously served.
