Trace Richey, Komen San Diego’s first Executive Director from 20008 – 2009, passed away early yesterday morning.

Trace left San Diego in 2009 to pursue his dreams and love in Tracy on the balconyAustralia and for many years worked in the non-profit industry in Sydney.

He was a bright light, a fun and charming person, and a man with a tremendous passion for helping others.

May he rest in peace.

Thanks to Samm McDonald for this photo which completely captures his charm, openness and kind nature.
