Morro Bay, CA – The celebration of life event for Councilmember Robert “Red” Davis is set for Monday, August 9, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. in Morro Bay’s Cloisters Park. Red passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 24, after serving his community on Council since late 2016. Friends, neighbors, partnering agencies’ representatives, community members and City Councilmembers, employees and volunteers are encouraged to attend this public event, hosted by Red’s family and the City of Morro Bay.
Attendees should plan to arrive early. As Red was an avid biking enthusiast, those who are able are encouraged to ride their bikes to the event. A bike valet will be available to safely and securely park bikes at the park. The main parking lot at Cloisters Park will be reserved for Red’s family members, for those who need ADA assistance, and for event set-up purposes only. General parking will be available at Cloisters Park in the adjacent dirt field. Event overflow parking will be set up at Spencer’s Fresh Market parking lot (2650 Main Street), to be serviced by a trolley to and from the event. Special thanks to Bike SLO County for donating the bike valet to Spencer’s Fresh Market for offering use of their parking lot to help with event overflow.
Red’s family has asked that in lieu of providing flowers, folks consider donating to Bike SLO County in Red’s name. The donation link can be found here.
“The outpouring of support and love to Red’s family and to the City team since his passing has been absolutely incredible and heartwarming,” said City Manager Scott Collins. “We encourage all of those who were touched by Red in some way to attend this event to honor his life.”
As this event is being held during a time of rising COVID-19 cases locally, unvaccinated attendees should wear a mask, and others may also consider wearing a mask. For more guidance, please review the State of California’s latest recommendations related to COVID-19 and masks here.
