February 19, 1934 �" September 9, 2010

Brian Alexander Dobrow left this life on September 9, 2010 in San Francisco as a result of complications from renal cancer.

For Brian, life was an exciting adventure that included his partner, his children, the ballet, world travel, and a 45-year professional career in public health administration. From 1985 until his retirement from the AIDS office of the San Francisco Department of Public Health in 2001, he devoted himself to HIV prevention and the care of people with AIDS.   He served on statewide and national advisory bodies including the Governing Board of the American Public Health Association, the California Public Health Association and the California HIV Prevention Council. In addition, he served as the executive director of several Bay Area non-profit health agencies.

He is survived by his life partner of 30 years, Thomas Outt of San Francisco, his daughters Dana Dobrow-Curtis of Stockton and Michelle Dobrow of San Francisco, his son Patrick Dobrow of Spokane, Washington, his sisters, and his many friends in Puerto Vallarta and San Francisco.

At his request, no services will be held. Contributions may be made to The Friends of the Library, Visual Aid of San Francisco or the Stop AIDS project.
