Memorial march honors beloved barista Brian Fairbrother

A memorial march on Tuesday from South Lake Union to the southern edge of Eastlake honored beloved barista Brian Fairbrother.

Fairbrother died Sept. 8 from injuries suffered in a bicycling accident at 1177 Fairview Ave. N. on Aug. 30.


Friends and family in the march, many wearing orange, his favorite color, walked from the Espresso Vivace location in South Lake Union where Fairbrother was a manager to the site of his accident. Many later continued on to a picnic at Volunteer Park.

Tom Fucoloro from the Seattle Bike Blog covered the march and generously shared the photos here. There are more at the blog.
