It’s with great sadness that we let you know that Brian Pemberton passed away on Saturday, September 11th, after a long (and escalating) battle with a lung disease known as IPF (Ideopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis). Brian was more than just the founder of the company that’s become NW Explorations. He was a friend and mentor to many people in our company and industry and someone who was passionate about sharing his love of boating – particularly in the Pacific Northwest.
Brian will be missed by us all and leaves behind a legacy that his family and friends applaud. Whether it was being a business leader, mentoring people, climbing mountains, or leading boaters to Alaska, Brian did it all with passion, skill, and commitment.
From a grateful group of friends; we pass along our condolences to Brian’s family and celebrate his life as one that was well-lived.
Calm Seas Brian.
