A memorial service for George N. Zenovich is scheduled to be held Oct. 19, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Pardini's Catering and Banquets, 2257 W. Shaw Ave. in Fresno.
The Zenovich family is asking anyone planning to attend to RSVP by Oct. 17.
Mr. Zenovich, 91, a musician, attorney, appellate court justice, state lawmaker, Democratic Party activist, mentor and lobbyist, died late last month in Fresno. He played key roles in several significant pieces of California legislation, including creation of the landmark Agricultural Labor Relations Board, the State Arts Council and the California Housing Authority.
A website set up for the memorial says the service will "celebrate (Mr. Zenovich's) life's achievements in remembrance." The website is titled "A Life Of Public Service."
Remembrances may be made to Hinds Hospice, 1616 W. Shaw Ave #A5, Fresno CA 93711. As an alternative, family members ask for a donation to a favorite charity.
