January 2014 Harchery
The Everett Steelhead and Salmon Club along with our Youth Club the Everett Youth Steelhead and Salmon Club lost one of our most loved and dedicated members on February 18th. Jim Brauch passed away after a very short time battling cancer. Not only does he leave behind a great family and many wonderful friends, he leaves a huge void within our club. Jim was a lifetime member of the ESSC and Chairman of the ESSYO. He spent countless hours devoted to kids fishing events. His outreach to the fishing community in pursuit of that personal goal of obtaining just one more rod to be giving to a child or a couple of extra dollars raised to buy more fish for the kids programs was unmatched. Jim has served in many positions within the club and with all that knowledge was one of my go to sources when I had questions. He chaired the Lifetime Membership committee, volunteered as the auctioneer for the annual Sno-King CCA banquet, gave countless hours to not only for our own derbies, but generously donated his time to Salmon for Soldiers and the Everett Blind Derbies s well. Jim was a giving man and his constant and endless supply of humor will be missed greatly.Read more...
