San Francisco will hold a closed casket viewing at City Hall on Friday for residents to honor and pay their respects to Mayor Ed Lee, who died unexpectedly this week during his second term in office.
Lee, the first Asian-American mayor of San Francisco, will lie in state for the public to visit between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. in the rotunda at City Hall.
On Sunday, friends, family and elected officials will celebrate Lee’s life in a memorial service beginning at 3 p.m., which is also open to the public.
Lee died at 1:11 a.m. Tuesday at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital after suffering a heart attack. Board of Supervisors President London Breed immediately assumed the role of acting mayor following Lee’s death.
