2014 was a sad year for Portland Santas, as car-related incidents caused the death of 3 of our own.
HIS NAME IS KENNY SPURLOCK!
We learned of Kenny Spurlock’s death during Summer Santacon, which then turned into an impromptu wake.
Kenny was one of the muralists of the oft-referenced Santacon mural and a delightful agent of chaos.
Kenny wound up being celebrated with several memorials, including performances of live theater, live music, murals,
giant origami, dozens of people in a group hug, and chanting.
HIS NAME IS STEVE FRITZ!
HER NAME IS CARY FAIRCHILD!
Steve Fritz and Cary Fairchild were old guard Cacophonists who were driving in Steve’s famed zebra-striped car on I-5 when
a truck crossed the unbarricaded median on 9/24/14. Steve was killed on site, Cary died the next week due to related injuries.
