Just heard the sad news that Roy Mottini has left us. Roy was a fixture in North Beach and at Café Trieste. I’ve known Roy for 17 years and have taken many photographs of him. Despite his many health challenges, Roy was a kind and caring soul. Just a few weeks ago, he was trying to give me the few dollars he had in his pocket. He so wanted to help those around him. North Beach just won’t be the same. RIP Roy. We miss you already.
