Don Cash had just achieved his dream of climbing the highest peak on each continent when he died on his descent from Mount Everest. The Utah resident had quit his job to go after his dream of joining the “seven summits club.” He achieved his goal when he reached the top of Mount Everest but collapsed on the descent in an area called the “Hillary Step.” It is believed he suffered a heart attack, sherpas gave him CPR but he passed away. Cash signed a waiver that his body would be left on Everest if he died.

He sent a message to his son shortly before he passed away, saying, "I feel so blessed to be on this mountain that I read about for 40 years."
