In Memoriam: Thierry Rautureau
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our esteemed board member Thierry Rautureau, on Sunday, October 29, 2023. Thierry was the Vice-President of the AFSeattle board, and was very involved with all facets of the Alliance’s activities. He served on the board for over 10 years and was universally loved for his presence, his contribution and his sense of humor. Thierry was a
prominent member of the Francophone community in Seattle and hosted the famous podcast “Hot Stove Radio” with Tom Douglas under his title
"The Chef in the Hat". This is a sad day for the Alliance community, the staff, and the board, and he will be very much missed. We
are all grieving this sudden loss, and we encourage you to take a moment to celebrate his legacy.
