Memorial Fund For Sobel Children

A memorial fund has been established for the children of David Sobel who passed away on July 12 while on a camping trip with son Mickey and daughter Molly. Well-attended San Rafael and Bolinas memorial services were held in July for the 42-year-old father, community activist and owner of the Bolinas Bay Bakery.

Sobel was a moving force in the Bolinas downtown business community, a past-president of the Community Center, a political activist, and a supporter and fan of the Grateful Dead. He was well-known for his generosity with food from the bakery for those down on their luck, community events, and environmental causes.

Memorial contributions for the Sobel children can be made to: The Mickey and Molly Sobel Trust Fund, c/o Westamerica Bank, Northgate, 1 Mitchell Boulevard, San Rafael, CA 94903.
