Lynda V. Mapes has this story in her nature blog at the Seattle Times:

We covered his life — and tragic death by boat propeller — extensively in The Seattle Times.

His life is the subject of a film that will be screened September 9 -15 at the SIFF Cinema at McCaw Hall at Seattle Center and in Tacoma at The Grand Cinema. Suzanne Chisholm is the film’s producer and co-director. It is distributed by Paladin.

For more information on the film, see the film’s website.
