Celebration of Franklin Bradshaw's life (March 15, 2014)

Seattle, WA
Post #: 1
I read about Franklin’s death, but I didn’t recognize his name until I got an e-mail from his sister Cynthia. She sent me a link to news articles and his personal photo website. As often the case with me, I’m not good with names, but I do associate faces with their vehicles and gears (PFD, paddle, kayaks). When I saw his photos, I remembered him.

In looking at Franklin’s photo website, there are photos of his sea kayaking “meet-up” trips with Saul so there are some in this group who knew him.


Franklin lost his life on January 18th in a mountaineering accident.  There's been a lot written, so rather than adding more here are some links:


and Franklin's website: 


There was a Memorial Service on February 8th and there will be a Celebration of his life at the Seattle Mountaineer's clubhouse on March 15th.  Here's more information:

Franklin was dedicated to sharing his love of the outdoors with others and was committed to pass that passion on to the next generation. So, in lieu of flowers, we request that donations be made to The Mountaineers youth programs towards establishing a Franklin Bradshaw Youth Fund Attn: Development, 7700 Sand Point Way N.E., Seattle, WA 98115 (e-mail for electronic instructions)

Can you let you other's that would like this information.
