Subject: Keve Bray = Seattle?

I while ago, perhaps 3 years (?), I connected briefly with a mudcatter that had known of Keve Bray, in Seattle. I knew Keve quite well and he had a powerful impact on me as a performer, in the late 50's and early 60's.

As I recall, this mudcatter was in Grad school studying Social Work at the University of Washington. I have gone through several e-mail carrier changes over the recent months, and I have lost my e-mail contact with this person. I'm hoping that he sees this note and will contact me again. And I also would like to talk with anyone else who remembers the late Keve Bray. Thanks for reading this ... Bob (deckman)Nelson

I knew Keve Bray well from 1969 - 1970. He was an adjunct professor at Highline Community College. I learned a lot from him and transported him frequently from the college to his home in the Central area of Seattle. Oddly enough, his wife Olivia Bray was one of my elementary school teachers in the 5th and 6th grade at Whitworth Elementary School. I knew his kids as Ms. Bray would bring them to school on special occassions.

I too would like to more about what happened to my friend Keve Bray. Please let me know any new information you have found.

Jim, it may be a week or two before you hear from Deckman (Bob Nelson) because he is currently on concert tour in Idaho.

I met Keve Bray a few times through Bob, but Bob knew him quite well, and did some performances with him (e.g., a wonderful stage dramatization of James Weldon Johnson's God's Trombones: Seven Negro Sermons in Verse). Bob (backstage) provided guitar accompaniment to a haunting song sung by Keve's wife.

As soon as Bob gets back from Idaho, I'll alert him to check this thread.

Hi Jim ... Bob Nelson here, in Idaho. I'm visiting with "Rapaire", and using his puter and moniker. I read your comments about Keve. Quite a guy! I'll be back home in about a week, after we get done with Idaho and Montana. When I return, I'll refresh this thread and get back to you by private e-mail about the details of Keve's death. CHEERS, Bob(deckman)Nelson

Hi Jim ... IT's being Sunday evening here in the Seattle area. It looks like we are about four time zones away from each other. I've got both your business phone and your cell phone number. I'd like to talk with you on the phone and discuss Keve's death. If you'll suggest a good time for me to call you tomorrow, Monday, we can talk about things. CHEERS, Bob Nelson
