CPNO members set up a “coffee talk” on July 26, 2023, at the Koffi South on Camino Real near the Ace Hotel to raise awareness of our neighborhood organization. We encourage all our neighbors to join online and be on our confidential, low-volume mailing list. It is an important source of information in the event of a public safety emergency in the neighborhood.
Our Canyon Palms neighbor Bob Fey, who died July 29 at the age of 79, is being remembered for the roles he played in the growth of Palm Springs as a developer and philanthropist. (See the Desert Sun’s obituary.) Bob was present for our organization’s formation, and many of us got to know him as he walked his dogs in the neighborhood.
“Bob was always forward thinking and engaged in today and the future,” said Ken Patrick, chairman of the Canyon Palms Neighborhood Organization. “To my delight, he would recall and share neighborhood development history and his significant contributions when coaxed. He was a positive and generous man.”
The newspaper said Bob’s funeral was scheduled for 11 a.m. Aug. 3 at Temple Isaiah, a synagogue he helped build and lead.
