Howard E. Sargeant, founder of Lakes Gas, passed away in October 2017 at the age of 94. To commemorate his life, employees from our corporate office presented a plaque to his family.
Recently, the plaque was mounted to a bench in Lakeside Park by the city of Forest Lake, Minnesota. While park visitors are relaxing, they can reflect on his memory, along with his contributions to the community and the propane industry.
