DAHP is saddened to report the passing of Donovan Gray, 68, a former DAHP colleague and ardent supporter of the arts and historic preservation. According to today’s centralmaine.com post, Donovan died from injuries suffered after a crash on Thursday near Colby College in Waterville, Maine.
Born in Seattle, Washingtonians will remember Donovan for his long time passion and support for the arts. He later came to be equally devoted to historic preservation with a special passion for historic railroads, leading successful efforts with the Cascade Rail Foundation and WA State Parks to save and rehabilitate the historic depot in South Cle Elum. Before moving to Maine, Donovan worked for DAHP in the early 2000s in reviewing historic rehabilitation work on the State Capitol Campus following the 2001 Nisqually Earthquake.
Our sincere condolences to Donovan’s many friends and family.
