In Loving Memory of Pat Haverty...

With a very heavy heart, the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development shares the news that our vice president, Pat Haverty, passed away on September 10, 2020. Finding the words to appropriately express the significance of this loss to our organization and our Chamber family is extremely difficult. Pat was a respected colleague and valued friend to all who were fortunate enough to cross his path. In addition to being an exceptional leader and impactful professional, Pat was a truly kind-hearted individual who will be greatly missed. In tribute to Pat, we are sharing a few sentiments that perfectly capture the truly impactful man he was. Click here to view a video from those that worked with Pat over the years, both in Lincoln and throughout the state.
