It is with heavy hearts that we have to post that our friend and co-worker Rhys Harriman passed away on June 5th. Rhys died in a tragic accident while visiting family in Maine and our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Kelly along with his many family and friends. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Columbia River Keepers 111 Third St, Hood River, OR 97031
Rhys was always his happiest when he was on the water and was among the regulars at Swell City. So the next time you rig up and go out make that first jibe for Rhys and know that he's smiling down on all of us.

Rhys, my friend, was fond of nicknames. I am "Clem-dog-daddy-o" and I miss my friend!

No finer man existed. He set the gold standard. I am thankful to have been his friend.

It is a very sad news. Rhys was such a fine man. Always had fun with him, at the store or on a windsurfing site.

My condolences to his wife Kelly and his family.

Truly sad news. I didn't know Rhys that well, but every time I saw him he seemed to have an extremely positive and cheerful attitude. He will be missed.
