The family asks in lieu of flowers and gifts, that charitable donations be made to the George C. Lin Memorial Fund, which will provide grants to institutions that provide scholarships to students studying film, and for pheochromocytoma research and education. Please send checks to:

The San Diego Foundation

Please write the name of the fund, George C. Lin Memorial Fund, on the memo line of your check. A memorial Facebook group was started last week, where friends can share their fond memories and photos of George with one another: George Lin, friend, brother, son, beautiful human being.

UPDATE: Here's the San Diego Union-Tribune's obituary for George Lin: George Lin; scientist's passion led him to work on Asian film festival. It's amazing. Even while struggling with his disease, which left him paralyzed and barely able to speak, he was urging the Filipino nurses around him to check out the San Diego Asian Film Festival. That's true dedication.
