R.I.P. Kjell Dale

Posted by Jane Gorby on July 29, 2011, 4:56 pm

With great sadness I report that my dear friend and next-door neighbor, Kjell Dale, aka the Admiral, passed away in his sleep early this morning. He'd gone to the VA Hospital in Seattle for treatment after he was diagnosed here with cancer in May. Kjell died with close friends at his side. He was 74.

A celebration of the Admiral's life will be held later this year in La Manzanilla, including, appropriate for a 40+-year seafarer, dispersing his ashes at sea.
