Help us dedicate a bench in memory of Gilbert Menke
Gilbert Menke passed away in a tragic work accident in July, 2016 in New Hampshire. As a way to honor and remember our beloved family member, friend, colleague, and student we would like to dedicate a bench on the UC Davis campus in his memory. This bench will be situated where Gilbert could often be found – relaxing in the sun, visiting with friends, eating lunch, or smoking cigarettes (before the all-campus ban) – as a student, then a sculpture studio volunteer, and later yet as the Sculpture Technician for the Art Department. Gilbert left a young daughter and partner behind. In the event we meet our goal we will hold a dedication once the new bench has been installed. Any funds raised in excess of $3000 will be presented to his family.
