You may have seen fliers all over Fremont recently for Phil Irwin, who disappeared from his Queen Anne home on June 1st. Sad news today via MyBallard as Irwin’s family reports that his body has been found in Lake Union.

Phil’s daughter Emily, a Ballard resident, writes, “I just wanted to let you know that my father’s body was found in Lake Union yesterday by divers from the Wooden Boat Center who were working a regular dive for ship wreckages. It appears that he took his own life by jumping off the Aurora Bridge. Again, thank you for the help in trying to find him. My family is grateful to know where he is and, at the same time, deeply saddened by the reality of the situation.”

Condolences to the Irwin family.
