Brian David Rafter
June 4, 1971 - September 18, 2020

Brian D. Rafter, age 49, of Seattle, WA passed away from liver disease on September 18, 2020, surrounded by loved ones.
Brian was born in Farmington, MN to Kenneth Rafter and Sharon Johnstone Rafter (Robertson). He spent much of his childhood growing up in his mother's home state of AK. He graduated high school in Wasilla, AK in 1989. Brian obtained many technical certifications that led him to a career as an Systems Engineer and IT Manager. -
Brian's sense of humor and generosity will always be remembered. He loved all things tech, cooking and he was a Subaru enthusiast.
