May 28, 2011 – Re-post from our Strategic Alliance Partner Discover Baja.
“Discover Baja is sad to announce that Baja pioneer and adventurer Marvin Patchen passed away this week. In addition to being an engaging author (Baja Adventures by Land Air and Sea, and more recently Baja Outpost), Marv was a great friend and supporter of Discover Baja over the past 20 years. His fascinating stories, exciting presentations and amazing photography would keep the attention of members for hours. His knowledge of Baja seemed inexhaustible, and he was always willing to share his latest exciting adventures and discoveries. All of us at Discover Baja send our warmest sympathies to Aletha and his family. You will all be in our thoughts and hearts as we remember and celebrate Marv’s amazing life and love of Baja. VAYA CON DIOS, AMIGO.”
Baja Amigos also extends our sincere condolences to the family; Baja Pioneers like Marvin Patchen have inspired many to explore and enjoy this magnificent peninsula.
