Bruce Lee with Linda Emery

You may know Bruce Lee as a martial artist legend and action movie hero. Bruce Lee spent his youth in Hong Kong and moved to Seattle at the age of eighteen. Ruby Chow, a family friend, gave him a place to stay and a job as a waiter at her restaurant. After settling in, Lee studied philosophy at the University Washington and continued to develop and teach his martial art Jeet Kune Do. Seattle is where he fell in love with his wife, Linda Emery, and Seattle is where he is buried with his son Brandon. It's estimated that 10,000 people visit his Lakeview Cemetery grave site every year.
