Remembering Elmer Owens

Elmer Owens, First Book SF Board Member, passed away after a long illness on Tuesday, April 23, 2013.

Elmer was an accomplished speech pathologist. He was a kind and gentle man of great good humor who contributed much to the success of Up on Top and First Book San Francisco. He is greatly missed.

A celebration of Elmer's life will take place on Sunday, May 19 @ 2:30 pm @ the Unitarian Universalist Church, 1187 Franklin @ Geary.

Here is a link to Elmer's obituary on SF Gate.

Below are two photos of Elmer in lively conversation with fellow First Book San Francisco Board Member Kathy Katz at a First Book event in May 2010.
