Leighton Hepker, 65, of Maquoketa, recently passed. Leighton was a broadcaster at KMAQ Radio in Maquoketa for over 40 years. Throughout these years, he was a fantastic promoter of Camp Courageous. From countless interviews with Camp Courageous Honorary Board Member Muriel Allen to interviews with Camp staff, he was always open to an opportunity to spread awareness of Camp Courageous. Under the ownership of Dennis Voy, KMAQ has been a generous supporter of Camp Courageous for decades. Leighton and Dennis had a wonderful relationship that spanned over 40 years. They spent thousands of hours broadcasting together. Leighton will be dearly missed by his friends at Camp Courageous and his listening audience. He touched more lives than he could ever realize.
