Rep. Carolyn Maloney's husband has died
« on: September 26, 2009, 06:58:07 PM »
NEW YORK — The husband of U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney has died on a mountain climbing expedition in the Himalayas, aides to the congresswoman said Saturday.

Clifton Maloney, a millionaire investment banker and avid climber, was resting in a high-altitude camp after a successful ascent to the summit of the world's sixth-highest mountain when he died.

He was 71, a late age for such a grueling endeavor, but had been in excellent health, aides said.

"I am told that his last words were, 'I am the happiest man in the world. I just climbed a beautiful mountain,'" said Barry Nolan, a congressional aide who works with Carolyn Maloney.

Congresswoman Maloney is, of course, our representative. Sad, but for a mountaineer to die on a mountain is to die doing what they love...

I was also saddened to hear of Clifton Maloney's untimely passing. Perhaps the stress of the climbing along with the high altitude triggered a heart attack.

My sincere condolences to the family.  :-(
