A Yosemite Figure Passes Away

I never met Dean Conway nor, frankly, know of him – but the report below makes him sound like one of those interesting Yosemite characters who touched quite a few people, loved the Range of Light, and will likely be remembered. (Interesting fact from the West Coast Imaging Blog post: Conway Summit north of Lee Vining carries his family name.)

Remembering Dean Conway A part of Yosemiteís history died when Dean Conway passed away on June 6, 2008. Conway was a legendary packer who packed in to the High Sierra people from all walks of life, along with at least one future president, film crews, and celebrities.

The obit from the Fresno Bee gives a far better overview of Conwayís life, than I could do, but the one time I got to meet Conway was a memorable one. – Rich Seiling (noreply@blogger.com) [West Coast Imaging blog]
