Scott Wicklund passed away on
December 27, 2012 at the age of 46.
Scott was born in Kirkland, Washington
on May 6, 1966, the youngest of five
children of Francis and Mary Wicklund
of Kirkland.
Scott is survived by his brother, Don
Wicklund, and sister in law, Belinda
Wicklund, of Kirkland, WA, his sister,
Geralyn Bandur, and brother in law, Paul
Bandur, of San Ramon, CA, his sister,
Barbara Wicklund, of Redmond, WA, his
brother, Douglas Wicklund, and sister in law Sharon Wicklund,
and his nieces, Selena and Kathleen Wicklund all of Spring,
TX, and his loving partner, Sharla Lynn, of Twisp, WA.
Scott Wicklund was a resident of the Methow Valley for over
20 years working at the North Cascades Smokejumper Base,
and lived on the base for many summers. He spent winters
traveling, taking photographs, skiing and playing in the snow
between Mount Baker, Steven's Pass, Mission Ridge and
mostly the North Cascade Mountains. He enjoyed surfing and
traveled worldwide to places like Indonesia, Singapore, New
Zealand, Europe, and Thailand in pursuit of the joy he found
through his admirable adventures. Scott also was an avid reader
with an early interest in journalism. While adding photos to
a backcountry ski story submission he got a request for more
pictures and so a career in ski photography was born. Scott
had his photographic work and articles published in Ski
magazine, The Seattle Times, Northwest Skier, Washington
Winter and various other magazines. He also had advertising
contracts with Steven's Pass, Mission Ridge, as well as several
other ski resorts.
Scott is our brother, uncle, friend and real life hero. We have
always said that Scott never met a stranger; he only met more
friends. Everyone who ever met Scott was proud to know him
and be a part of his life. He treated everyone with kindness and
respect. Scott will be sorely missed every day; but his smile,
enthusiasm, inspiration and stories will live on with us forever.
We have always been so proud of Scott and that will never
change. Scott lived his life to the fullest and that is how he
would want us to remember him. We love you Scott!
We ask that in lieu of Flowers please make a donation to
the "Leavenworth Ski Hill Fund in Memory of Jim, Johnny
and Chris" (Scott's words). This is officially known as The

Association which of course is also dear to Scott's heart.
