In memoriam: Eric Joseph Lopopolo
Eric Joseph Lopopolo, storekeeper for the Student Health Service (SHS), died April 9.
Born in Fresno, Lopopolo had worked for SHS for 22 years. He was in charge of all non-pharmaceutical purchasing -- medical and office supplies. He also made sure that sterilization equipment worked and that medical waste was handled and disposed of properly.
"Joe was always so positive and willing to lend a hand to anyone," said Marian Yee, outreach coordinator for the Student Health Service. "He loved going to work and made friends on campus wherever he went."
A resident of San Francisco, Lopopolo is survived by his partner Bob Streisf. The Student Health Service held an on-CampusMemorial for him April 13.

The project is part of an agreement between the CSU and UC systems, the PUC and major California utility companies. It will result in significant annual utility savings for the campus.

But it is hard to imagine that her extensive work in women's issues and public health doesn't make her an authority, at least in San Francisco. In fact, it would be easier to make a list of important Bay Area community health and social projects that Guy has not participated in than to create one she has.
Currently serving her third appointment on the San Francisco City and County Health Commission, Guy has worked with public officials, residents and community organizations in San Francisco since 1974 when she joined SFSU. Her distinguished list of accomplishments also includes a stint as director of the Bay Area Homelessness Program, a consortium of 16 colleges and universities founded at SFSU to prevent and end homelessness...
