Laten slept for years outside the Seattle Medical-Dental Building and was known and beloved by many who worked there, who requested a Leaf be placed for him where he slept. His Leaf was dedicated on October 22, 2021 and laid on April 6, 2022.
Laten’s brother Lawrence said of him, “Laten was a loving, honest, caring, funny, brilliant, yet simple man. He was a son, a big brother, a cousin, and an uncle. He was dearly loved and will be deeply missed” and more in his eulogy at Seattle Emerald.
