We created this blog in order to share memories and stories of our dear friend Ignacio Celedon (aka Fito), who was killed in an attempted robbery early in the morning on Sunday, September 12th in South Berkeley. Fito led an amazing and enthusiastic life, and we invite everyone who knew him to contribute your memories and pictures. You can also find updates here on community meetings and links to news stories about his passing and the ongoing effort to bring his killers to justice.

Fito was from Chile, and since his death his family and his fiancee's family have spent a lot of money on travel back and forth between there and the Bay Area. We've created an opportunity for you to donate in order to help offset some of these costs.

September 12, 2013
Almost impossible to believe it has been 3 years since Fito transitioned... his birth and death day were observed at the garden with some friends and family.  Their presence made an unimaginably difficult day much easier.  Alejandra visited from Chile and it was perfect timing because it was the last day in our apartment, so she was able to help me say goodbye to the place where we happily lived together, if only for a short time.  As in years past, Rolando Ortega Chilean Consulate came to the garden as did several news outlets (NBC News, ABC News).  I am now in Baja California, in the midst of the grand migration towards Brazil for the 2014 World Cup!
