Please let me know if any of you would like to and are able to attend Jeff's Celebration of Life. We are limited to 250 people, so if you'd like to be there and can attend on Saturday, September 22 from 5 to 8 pm in Boulder, Colorado please reply, with the # of people in your party (if more than just yourself) so that I can add you to the invite on Facebook. If you don't have Facebook, I just need an email or phone # and can add you to the event.

There will be a second memorial later this year in Ogden, Utah where my dad grew up so if you can't make it to this one, hopefully we will be able to see you then!

Thanks,

Sonja Lowe

I was at the base of Latok 1 with Thomas Huber when I heard the news. Kind of bittersweet...the site of one of his notable climbs and Thomas had just made the second ascent of Metanoia! Jeff’s grondbreaking solo on the Eiger.

Jeff will long be remembered for his pioneering climbing but I was even more impressed with the way he dealt with his long and terrible illness.

New York Times published an obit today (?!) in the online edition. Thorough write-up with a handful of well-chosen and representative photos.

Always an inspiration to me. Another end of an era moment for me. Sad.

Jeff would have turned 67 today. Climb on, brother.

Edit: 68th birthday. My bad.

Good of you to take note, neebee! Thanks for putting the links together. Don't we miss the mellow Jello presence here?

Hey Gilroy, love that pic of Jeff with Philo lurking.

Jeff was an inspiration to all of us in Gunnison. We would go out and boulder at Hartman's rock and then run into Jeff and hear about his most recent daring doo's; Black Ice Couloir, The Eiger etc. He will be mightily missed.

That can't be philo, Scott, he's banned.

We're talking about the same person, right? The guy that repaired Jeff's wheelchair until it was a supercharged scourge of the parking lot? The guy that went to ICU with Jeff those many times, designed the ramp to make the house wheel chair accessible?

That can't be him.

Phil, able to live under the radar and make real contributions that take time and energy. Puts his deeds where is mouth is. I know that Jeff meant a lot to him.

Phil, despite his kneejerk moments here on the forum, devoted himself to Jeff and Connie when they truly needed help. I shared many fine moments discussing the workings of the cosmos with these people.

Don't miss Philo's digital Turret's Syndrome, but he did help out a lot.

Jeff belongs at the top bump.

Be there or be talked about, Boulderites!

Can someone tell me how I can watch Metanoia? I was moved to see it with his passing, but I have not been able to find it anywhere.

As far as I know Connie has had the links disabled.

Valentina is 8 now.

Word is, the Lowe clan are massing at a huge mansion in Niwot.
(Jeff had 8 siblings with numerous descendants)
Sounds like this could be bigger than the Utah memorial.
