San Francisco says farewell to Donald G. Fisher

Fisher The man who created the Gap clothing chain received a high-profile farewell in San Francisco.

Donald G. Fisher died in September at his San Francisco home after a long battle with cancer. He was 81.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that about 5,000 people, including Willie Mays and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, attended the Oct. 23 tribute. The story's author was as high-profile as many of the guests: former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown in his Willie's World column.
