Bryan James Flaherty, 1958-2010
Bryan, a longtime resident of Seattle and outgoing member of Seattle's Gay community, passed away peacefully and surrounded by love on March 31, 2010, at his home in Palm Springs following a two-year battle with cancer. Bryan was born November 25, 1958, in Olympia Washington to Leon and Pat. He moved to Seattle at a young age where he began his 31-year career with Qwest. Bryan and his partner of 15 years, Ron Hager, had recently retired to begin a new adventure with a new home in Palm Springs, just months before learning his diagnosis of stage-four colorectal cancer. A caring and giving man, known for his zeal for life and a gregarious wit, Bryan looked forward to his fabled holiday parties and lavishing guests with culinary delights at his and Ron's homes on Capitol and Beacon Hills. Bryan leaves his partner Ron, brothers Brad and Scott, and their families. Countless friends whose love for Bryan was reciprocal are also left to fondly remember and miss him.

A memorial service and inurnment will be held 1 p.m. April 22 at Forest Lawn cemetery in Cathedral City, and a reception follows at Wiefels, 660 S. Vella Road, Palm Springs. Remembrances in Bryan's name are suggested to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance to support colorectal cancer research or services, P.O. Box 19023, Seattle, Washington, 98109-1023.
