Last week Esmond’s Martin was killed in his home in Nairobi Kenya. The incident is being called a robbery turned violent. I met Esmond and interviewed him at his home in 2015. His death is tragic news. He was a great contributor to efforts saving elephants in East Africa and the world over.
Besides a conservationist, Edmonds was a pen and ink artist. I remember his exhibit showcased at the Denver Art Museum a few years back. It is a small world. A kind and gentle man was Edmonds. I’m sorry for his loss and the extended family’s sorrow. Condolences to his wife. He was married to a sister of a Denver philanthropist. Sad to lose him to the dust of Nairobi.
