Chef Bruce Fry

It saddens me to announce the untimely death of our beloved team member Chef Bruce Fry. Chef Fry passed away early this morning, Thursday, June 15. Chef Bruce Fry was a member of the Hilton family for 32 years and his contributions and legacy will be warmly remembered.

Arrangements for memorial services for Chef Bruce Fry are being planned, but the date and time are not yet confirmed. Chef Fry’s family wants the hotel to be involved with the services and it will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Seattle Airport so many team members can attend. We will communicate the details of the services to all when confirmed.

We respectfully request that all questions and comments regarding this matter be directed to Lee Kaufman in Human Resources.

Thank you to all of you who recently took the time to write notes to Chef Fry. His family received the notes and wanted you to know how much they appreciated them. They also want you to know how much your love, support and warm wishes have meant to them during this difficult time.

-In Loving Memory of Chef Bruce Fry

Seafood Study – Please Participate

Hello everyone,

My team of researchers and I have developed a project called, Seafood Traceability In the Pacific Northwest: An Industry’s Perspective, being conducted at Oregon State University focused on the following demographic:

Anyone involved in or who supports a seafood business/organization as an owner, employee, and/or contractor in Alaska, British Columbia, Oregon, Washington, California, or Hawaii.

If you belong to this demographic, you are invited to participate in a 15 min survey found at this link below (password: “seafood”):
