Man Who Kept Mount Rushmore Lights On Dies

Man Who Kept Mount Rushmore Lights On Dies
KEYSTONE, SD -

A South Dakota man who drew national attention in the mid-1990s when he paid to keep the lights on at Mount Rushmore during a federal government shutdown has died.

Arthur Oakes, of Keystone, died Monday after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 74.

Oakes wrote a check for $240 in late 1995 to keep the stone faces of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt illuminated for a week.

His widow, Marilyn, says her husband who was politically active throughout his life wanted to show that ordinary people can make a difference.

Arthur Oakes' funeral is 11 a.m. local time Saturday at the Mount Rushmore Ward Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
