Still reeling from learning what happened, in this piecemeal way -- the article above says he was both way off the trail and that he fell. No answers and no words to describe this tragedy. Funeral TBD. Thank you all so much. Special thanks to the strangers here who cared so much and gave us hope: @designomnivore @Oriah @K9Enzo @Simply Southern @Sillybilly. Let me put a face on Bruce before I leave this site. He was highly principled, happy-happy-happy, the Energizer Bunny (his bear hug could herniate your discs!), ate really fast and laughed really loud, extraordinarily charitable (he said giving his time was way more important than just writing a check, which he also did), always studying other cultures, religions and philosophies for his own personal growth, a "regular guy" who would talk to anyone, sensitive and caring like your best girlfriend, the best all-around friend you could ever, ever have. The only laugh I had this week was seeing him called a "wealthy financier"-- just no. The place he most felt alive was in wild nature and getting up close and personal with it. Ice climbing, kayaking, white water rafting, trail running, and all in the most spectacular natural places on earth. Still he took every precaution possible and was highly trained for 30 or 40 years as a technical climber, mountaineer--trust me, he did not want to lose his life this way, or any way. He had so many plans it was dizzying. He lived for his beautiful kids, his remarkable wife, his fantastic 90+ year-old mom and his giant extended family, friends, coworkers, and humongous circle of admirers. None of us can imagine a world without Bruce Rubin.
