Ron Gilbert's Celebration of Life Ceremony

On 4/29/2023 a Celebration of Life Ceremony was held for the founder of Ron's log. It was held at the Cabot's Museum in Desert Hot Springs.

Many wore pink as Ron was famous for wearing pink, plus “pink” was his burner name. His his brothers were present as well as some of their family. Ron had friends come from his various circles and family, friends, and city leaders who spoke.

Here are some pictures submitted to us:

Friend Jeff Bowman was the officiant.

Afterwards the family allowed Ron's friends to take some of his ashes to bring to events that Ron attended like Burning Man, and the World Naked Bike ride Los Angeles.

We, the Friends of Ron's Log, will keep his memory and content here alive.

Please consider giving a donation in Ron’s name to the various organizations that he loved and wrote about. In town: DHSHistoricalSociety.org and CabotsMuseum.org
