"Graves of Bruce Lee and Brandon Lee" Capitol Hill Tip by sunnywong

Capitol Hill, Seattle: 6 reviews and 6 photos


Buried side by side, Bruce Lee (1973) and his son Brandon (1993) have beautifully simple graves that are quite moving. Bruce Lee's tombstone is very angular and done in brilliant red with gold lettering in English and Chinese. A black-and-white photo of him graces the top while an open book rests at the bottom. The English inscription carved into the book reads: "Your inspiration continues to guide us toward our personal liberation." Beside it is Brandon Lee's tombstone, an impressive, fluid form with his name also carved in gold. Behind both tombstones is a stone bench with the inscription: "Husband and father, son and brother, you are always with us." Both of these tombstones are inspiring and definitely worth admiring.
