Fannin, Neil  
Neil "Bud" Franklin Fannin Passed away peacefully with his family by his side in Pleasanton at the age of 85 on November 16, 2014. Neil is survived by his wife of 57 years, Elsie; and their four children and eight grandchildren.

He is also survived by his brother, Warren and many nieces and nephews. Neil is preceded in death by his brother, Ernie and his dad, Ernest Fannin. Neil was born in Rolapp, Utah on October 31, 1929. The oldest of 3 boys, the family moved to Grass Valley in 1934 and then on to San Francisco in 1943. Neil attended John Swett Junior High and graduated from Samuel Gompers Technical School in 1948. He went to work for the American Can Company after high school and continued to work for them for 43 years in San Francisco and Oakland, except for his 2 years of military service. Neil was part of the 82nd airborne division stationed in Fort Bragg, North Carolina and volunteered to be a paratrooper. Upon returning from the service, he married the girl next door, Elsie Dolf, on April 7, 1957 at St. John's Lutheran Church in San Francisco. Over the next few years as the family grew, Neil would take the family on many outdoor and camping adventures. He loved the Grass Valley area and they would go camping and gold dredging every year. He was a great dad and husband and always put family first. A man of few words, he loved to tinker in the garage with his wood working tools for hours on end. We have many wonderful pieces of furniture made by our dad that will be cherished for years. In 2009, Neil and Elsie moved to Pleasanton to be closer to the family. They had fun times taking trips with the other seniors from the Pleasanton Senior Center and riding the shuttle around Pleasanton to the many restaurants and shopping areas. We want to thank the Pleasanton Senior Center, Serene Care and Hope Hospice for the love and kindness they showed our parents, especially our beloved father. Dad, we will miss you and we know you are now camping with the angels. A Memorial Service will be held at West Portal Lutheran Church, 200 Sloat Blvd, San Francisco, on Saturday, November 29 at 11am. A reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Neil's name to Hope Hospice of Dublin, 6377 Clark Avenue, Suite 100, Dublin, CA 94568.

Obituaries from the Past Week

Forgan, James  
James Bellamy Forgan On November 9th, James Bellamy Forgan passed after a long and arduous fight with kidney failure. Jim was a proud San Franciscan, raised in Noe Valley where he attended St. Philip's the Apostle and Sacred Heart High School. He considered himself part of the old guard, having played short-stop with the San Francisco Seals. He worked for the city's Water Department and was the head bartender at the San Francisco Opera House for more than 20 years. Jim also played a character actor in several episodes of The Streets of San Francisco and was a frequent subject of musings in many of Herb Caen's columns. In 1993, he married Sheila Claire Lee of San Francisco. As fate would have it, Jim met Sheila years earlier on the evening of her prom and referred to her then, and many days after, as "a day at the beach". Among so many other roles played in his lifetime, Jim was a devoted husband, a caring father and a veteran of the Korean War. He is survived by his wife Sheila, his two daughters Michele Ahern, Kristin Bouey, son-in-law Kevin Bouey and grandson, Quinn James Bouey, all of who loved him dearly. Jim wished for there to be no service or memorial in his honor, but rather donations made on his behalf to the Marin Humane Society, or to Heartland Hospice of San Rafael who cared for him during his last days. His smile and laughter will be missed by many.
