Man pulled from water identified as Port Townsend resident, Sequim attorney

PORT TOWNSEND — The man found dead in the Port Townsend Boat Haven on Monday morning has been identified as Anthony Philip Mauhar Jr., a Port Townsend resident who worked in Sequim.

He had been on his boat, which was moored at C Dock.

Mauhar, 68, was an attorney in private practice in Sequim specializing in business law and estate planning.

According to Port Townsend Sgt. Troy Surber, Mauhar was selling his boat and had scheduled an appointment to show it.

When the interested party arrived a bit early, he did not see Mauhar. The individual returned 10 minutes later to find Mauhar in the water, Surber said.

East Jefferson Fire-Rescue and Port Townsend police officers recovered the body.

“This is a big loss for our legal community, his clients whom he loved, and the community in general,” said attorney Mark Baumann of Port Angeles, a colleague and friend.

“Tony had to have been practicing in the area for more than 25 years. He was a valuable member of the legal profession.”

An autopsy is scheduled for today.
