Noting the Passing of former CD 11 City Councilman Bill Rosendahl at 70
Rosendahl died early Wednesday morning at his home in Mar Vista, surrounded by friends and family, after a four-year battle with cancer, according to a statement by David Graham-Caso, communications director for City Councilman Mike Bonin. Rosendahl was diagnosed in 2012 with cancer of the ureter, the tube that connects the kidney to the bladder. The disease went into remission in 2013, but it reappeared in 2014. His loved ones were told by doctors in January that Rosendahl could pass away "any day,” Graham-Caso said, so for the last three months, they have been visiting his home, holding something of “an amazing living wake." Rosendahl is survived by his longtime partner, book publisher Hedi El Kholti.
A tireless, selfless Progressive, Rosendahl was a sincere persona who in the middle of his battle with cancer, still placed paramount the concerns of those who he could help, above self. Our bloggin memory of Councilman Rosendahl will include his befriending of our former Mayor Sam Blogger David "Zuma Dogg" Saltzberg, as exampled in the photo above.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Rosendahl Family and Friends as Angelinos join in remembering a Selfless Man of Character.
