Celebration of Life – Kees & Claire
Tragic news has spread about the loss of two very special people. It was confirmed that our good friends and friends of many, Cornelius 'Kees' Brenninkmeyer and Claire Dixon, were killed when their snowcave collapsed on them at night, during their would-be 30 day traverse of the Wapta Icefield.
A news article from the Calgary Herald explained the story in more detail.
They died doing what they loved, exploring the mountains, together. While it's impossible to forget Claire's glowing non-stop smile or Kees' larger-than-life, contagious excitement, the photo above taken on their trip is an easy reminder of just how beaming with happiness they always were.
All their friends and accquantances (scattered around the region from their many adventures) are invited to come to Kamloops Saturday January 27 to celebrate Kees & Claire's unforgettable lives. Details to come, contact Jamie Bond for more information.
We'll miss you Kees & Claire… but we won't forget you.
