Robin Williams
The San Francisco Chronicle reports the effort to rename the grassy lawn on the east end of Golden Gate Park was led by Debi and Will Durst, who have put on Comedy Day at the park for 37 years. Williams, who grew up and lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, performed at the first Comedy Day and returned to take part whenever he could.
