SWEEP Magazine and Cliff at the Finish Line

Sharing the tribute for Cliff that was published in the latest issue of Washington Rowing's SWEEP Magazine. Huge thanks to our dear friend Dwight Phillips who put this together. (page 10)


Many of you have asked about Cliff's celebration of life and we are looking forward to getting everyone together once it is safe to do so, which will likely be next summer. Our family was able to have a small celebration for Cliff in August, spending the day on Lake Washington in a little Husky electric boat. We spread Cliff's ashes across the UW finish line in the Montlake Cut, and Erika's boyfriend, Matt, put together a wonderful video to remember that day: https://vimeo.com/453793489

Thank you for your continued love and support,

The Hurn Family
