Joseph Donald Rogers, 88, born May 1, 1926, passed away November 25, 2014, at the San Francisco VA Medical Center. He was born in Georgia, but had resided in San Francisco for more than 50 years. He was a well-known businessman who owned and operated several establishments over the years, including LeBoeuf Restaurant, Ginger's, Ginger's Too, and Ginger's Trois. Don, as he was known, loved his family and friends. He was gracious, kind, and thoughtful. Don's positive attitude and his acceptance of others was amazing. He valued uniqueness and believed everyone was special in their own way.

Don was a gentleman and an ambassador for the city of San Francisco. He enjoyed entertaining and sharing the lovely city of San Francisco with friends and family. "Mr. San Francisco" will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.

Survivors: Brother, Kenneth Odell Rogers of Claxton; nieces, cousins, and special friends, whom he cherished.
