A tribute to George Ramos, the former Cal Poly Journalism Department chairman who died last month, will be held Saturday in Morro Bay.
The memorial will begin at 1 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Building, 209 Surf St.
Food and drinks will be available afterward at Legends at the Circle Inn, 899 Main St., and at Fuel Dock, 900 Main St.
Ramos was found dead in his Morro Bay home by police July 23 after colleagues at the online local news site Cal Coast News had not been able to contact him for several days. Ramos was an editor at Cal Coast.
He was a Cal Poly journalism graduate who went on to win three Pulitzer Prizes while at the Los Angeles Times. He was hired at Cal Poly in 2003 and was department chair until 2008.
