It is with great sadness that we share with you the news that Lion Cy Bologoff lost his long fought battle. He will be missed. Long Time Brisbane Lion (since 1987).
Former Mayor Cyril G. “Cy” Bologoff passed away September 28, 2015. Cy served on the City Council for 4 full terms (16 years) from 1995-2011. He was Mayor four times, 1998-1999; 2002-2003; 2005-2006 & 2010-2011.
Prior to his service on the City Council, Cy had worked in the Brisbane Fire Department for 30 years, retiring as the City’s Interim Director of Public Safety and Brisbane’s Fire Chief.
Cy and his wife Bonnie first moved to Brisbane in 1959 and purchased their home here soon after. They were proud of their community and its schools, with their two children attending Brisbane Elementary, Lipman, and graduating from Jefferson High School. Cy spent 30 years in the City’s Fire Department, having served as a volunteer firefighter, a career firefighter, and ultimately, Fire Chief.
While on the City Council, Cy worked diligently with the Senior Advisory Committee whose dedication resulted in the construction of a new, affordable Senior Housing Project and the Senior Sunrise Room, providing Seniors in the community with a dedicated space of their own. Cy always made himself accessible to citizens, while serving on the City Council and upon retiring from the Council in 2011. He could be seen weekly attending the Wednesday afternoon Senior Luncheons at the Community Center, and was oftentimes by his wife Bonnie’s side helping her as she served up hot cocoa and cookies to kids during Concerts in the Park or at the Festival of Lights.
Cy will always be remembered for his dedicated leadership, extended service on the Council and to the citizens of Brisbane, and his warm smile and chuckle.
Cards and condolences can be sent to the Bologoff family at 202 Glen Park Way Brisbane, CA 94005 and Brisbane Lions Club, PO Box 317, Brisbane CA 94005
A memorial service is planned for Monday, October 5th at 1:00pm at Garden Chapel in South San Francisco (885 El Camino Real, South San Francisco).
