FOGG Open Letter – May 10, 2018

Remembering Lee Radner

FOGG wants to update you on Lee Radner, who passed away on Sunday, May 6, 2018.

We thank all of you who responded to our Alert about Lee’s death.  We were touched by how many of you spoke fondly of Lee, and the kind thoughts you shared.

Lee’s final wishes were to have his ashes combined with those of his wife Rogene.  The ashes will be taken to Hawaii by his daughters and spread at sea.  There will be no funeral service as was his request.

As many of our FOGG supporters know, Lee was passionate about the Summer Kids Camp Scholarship Program at the Bay Club – The Gateway.

Lee’s daughters asked, that as a final remembrance to him, our FOGG supporters can make a contribution to Kids Camp on Lee’s behalf.

If you would want to do this, please send your summer Kids Camp Scholarship Program tax deductible donations to PDF/FOGG, P.O. Box 2294, San Francisco, CA 94126.  On the memo line write “Lee Radner – 2018 Scholarship Fund.”

Should you prefer to donate online, you can do so at this FOGG website.

Click on the ‘Donate to 2018 Summer Kids Camp’ yellow donation button.

Lastly, FOGG wants to share with you a story about Lee and Rogene from May 2007 written by one of Lee’s longtime friends, Diana Taylor, who is the President of the Barbary Coast Neighborhood Association (BCNA).  We thank Diana for sharing this with us.  Lee was a founding Board member of BCNA.

The story can be read at the link on this website.

FOGG thanks again all our supporters, and we wish all of you happy moments in remember Lee.

Sad News – Lee Radner Has Passed Away

Lee Radner, our FOGG Chair, passed away Sunday evening, May 6, 2018.  He had suffered a stroke earlier that day.

He died peacefully.

His three daughters are currently in transit from their homes in Hawaii.  They will make final arrangements and take care of Lee’s personal items.

Lee was a stalwart in FOGG’s 15 year effort to save the Bay Club – The Gateway, previously known as the Golden Gateway Tennis & Swim Club, from being demolished and the site becoming luxury high-rise condominiums.

He also spearheaded FOGG’s Summer Kids Camp Scholarship Program for the last eight years.

Lee will be missed by many, as he had friends who knew that he could be counted on to help them in whatever way he could.

FOGG will advise you when we have more information to share with you.
