Memorial For Area Native Tom Pfaeffle Will Be Aug. 13th
Area native Tom Pfaeffle, who was tragically shot and killed in July, will be memorialized on the evening of Thursday, August 13th at The Moore Theater in Seattle.
Doors will open at 5pm, and everyone is welcome.
Pfaeffle, a 1979 graduate of Mt. Rainier High School, was an acclaimed 30-year veteran sound engineer who worked with bands like Nirvana, The Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Heart and many others.
According to a website set up as a tribute:
We’ll be celebrating the night in the only way Tom would’ve wanted. With great stories, music & friends
All proceeds from the evening will go to the Pfaeffle family. There will be no ticketing, we ask that you donate whatever you can.
Weâ€™d like to thank The Seattle Theater Group, Triamp Group and The Art Institute of Seattle for their generosity.
For those of you who are unable to attend, please feel free to use this site as a place to share memories, stories, songs and anything else youâ€™d like to share in remembering Tom, his life and his work.
The site also gives this recap of Tom’s life:
On Friday, July 17th, a loving wife lost her husband, a family lost their father, students lost their teacher and friends lost a smiling face they could always count on. We all lost something that this world has far too few of… a generous, caring, sincere, heartfelt person who gave all he could to those who became a part of his life.
Tom was a great man to many people for many different reasons. Weâ€™ve put up this website to honor the memories we have of him and to come together to celebrate his life and contributions to our collective successes, creativity and happiness.
Anyone who knew Tom knew that the single most important part of his life was his family. A trust has been set up in their name to help provide some support. We ask that you give what you can.
Tomâ€™s generosity knew no limits. This is our chance to show that not only was Tom a generous person but he knew how to surround himself with people of equal character and generosity.
We hope the trust not only provides the family with support now but will continue to provide for them in the future.
