Longtime West Seattle resident David Brachtenbach passed away on August 9th in Federal Heights, Colorado. Those who knew David best will remember him for his kind heart, irreverent sense of humor, creative intellect and love for his dogs. He will be missed by his family and friends and those who saw him on his regular walks around West Seattle. Born in 1962 in Selah, Washington, David lived most of his life in Seattle. He was loved and will be missed. Donations in his name to the Seattle Humane Society are appreciated.

    Although I have not know David for long his friendship has meant the world to me. He brought his humor, wit and vitality into my life, he was truly a bright spot. I shall never forget him and the wonderful conversations that we have had. Rest well dear friend….

    Though I wasn’t ever able to meet David, the outpouring of love and loss in the Brachtenbach family surely stands as testament to the kind of person he was.

    Peace to David and the family he left behind.
