GCPBA RiverNews 09.27.13 – Our Friend “Mary Phyl” Simpson

Robert and Mary Phyl Simpson in the Canyon, on the river.

It is with great sadness we report the passing of our friend, river runner and hiker Mary Simpson of Flagstaff, Arizona in a place she loved and with the people she loved, her family - at Granite Park, Mile 209 in a boating accident. Our hearts go to her family and her husband Robert - high school sweethearts.

The National Park Service will make a formal announcement shortly.

For GCPBA: Richard Martin
