Robert M. Leon Memorial Fund

It is with profound sadness that HASF announces the passing of Robert M. Leon on March 22, 2021.

Robert was a Board Member of the Haight Ashbury Street Fair (HASF) since 1979 and served as the Executive Director/Producer from 2007 – 2019. In June 2019, Robert was awarded a Certificate of Honor from the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in recognition of his commitment in Community Arts & Events.

Through his community involvement Robert had the opportunity to meet many people and build relationships that meant a lot to him.

We have set up a GoFundMe fund raiser for Robert’s final arrangements. Any contribution you can find in your heart to make would be greatly appreciated. On behalf of Robert’s friends and family, we are grateful for your support.
