Hal Verb has died


Mr. Harold (Hal) Verb Died on December 4, 2009. Born in Philadelphia on April 14, 1931, he moved to San Francisco in 1962 and worked as a printer and bookseller. He declared his atheism at age 17 after reading works by Emanuel Haldeman-Julius, and eventually acquired one of the largest collections of the author's "Blue Books" in the U.S. A recognized pioneer in the Bay Area atheist movement, he was on the board of American Atheists' local chapter and later helped to form Atheists of the San Francisco Region. Hal will be missed by the Bay Area atheist community.

So, was he buried anywhere? Cremated? Donated body to science?  If anyone knows, let me know. I'd like to do something in his memory.  Thanks.
