The passing of a legend... Keith Backlund
Keith Backlund, master craftsman, paddling legend and lifelong friend passed away last night - at his brother's house in Stalker- the home he grew up in. They were going out to eat and he couldn't catch his breath- and then passed quickly. He had a delightful couple days and a night out eating with his family.
Condolences to Ann and to the many many friends that were touched by Keith's talent, humor and love.
Step good, KJ, step good.
