There will be a celebration of RR in Modesto, CA on March 12th. Those interested in attending, please send an email to rr.memorial(@)hailmail.net (we need to have a relatively accurate prediction of attendance for planning purposes)

You will then receive an email invite... (Heads up, for those with gmail, they seem to be ending up in a folder titled "Promotions"....)

Thank you!

To those traveling in from areas populated by climbers or others who may be attending the memorial, ie. Colorado, Southern California, Central Valley California. This would be a good place to see someone who needs a ride gets it and set up a carpool network. I've already had contact with a few people who are in my area or on the way to Modesto and we will try to pick up as many as our vehicles hold. Great time to catch up on friendships and stories.
Any ideas as to how to pull this off in an organized manner? Also suggested by Tamara in our conversation today. She is pulling off a monsterous task hosting this celebration. Thank you Tamara for allowing us to gather once again amoungst friends.
Peace

This is where it began for me in 1971.
Much respect.

The 'official' obituary is in the Modesto newspaper:
http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/modestobee/obituary.aspx?pid=184548848

Note that the family asks that donations in Royal's memory be made to:

Greater Yosemite Council of the Boy Scouts

Central West Ballet

Yosemite Climbing Association

Presumably all can be found via the internetz. That may be an option for those who can't make the memorial.

Tamara? I received your invitation. Thank you! May I include my wife Heidi/Dorita on the RSVP? She visited with both your parents at various Outdoor Retailer Shows & would like to show her respects at the memorial, since she plans on making the trip to Modesto with me.

The ST messaging system is suspect at best. If you are planning on contacting Tamara using the email address will ensure that it arrives.
