Brian Keating Memorial Fund

$25,151 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 60 people in 11 months
Created September 8, 2018

Brian unexpectedly passed Sept. 2, 2018, from a heart attack. He was 62 years young and left a great void in many of our hearts.

His quick wit, dry sense of humor, and over-use of emojis will be missed. His compassion, creativity, and generosity will always be remembered.
Brian was always there to lend a helping hand.

His profound and positive impact on the specialty tea and natural products industries is timeless. While we will miss his smile, whenever we have a cup of tea, or walk into a Whole Foods, we will encounter a small part of Brian's legacy.  He affected the businesses of hundreds of people, brands, and hopeful entrepreneurs. His incredible network of friends and colleagues spanned the globe. Brian enriched thousands of lives.  

Now we need to celebrate him. Pick up your guitar if you have one. Listen to your favorite tune. For a moment, share Brian's passion for music.

Please donate to Brian's memorial fund. Proceeds will be divided to help cover costs associated with Celebration of Life services in Seattle and Boulder - the two cities Brian considered home.  

All additional proceeds will be gifted to create a legacy donation to KEXP, Brian’s favorite radio station, to honor his love of local music.
