Sam Yates was a member of our Club from March 15, 1988 to February 1, 2014. As Senior Vice President of Investments for RBC Wealth Management, he played an important role for many years in managing the funds held by the San Francisco Rotary Foundation. He was one of the investment managers who regularly provided a financial “prognostication” as the first speaker of the calendar year. 
Sam passed away on November 10, 2021. See his obituary. If you have a copy of A Tradition of Fellowship and Service: The Rotary Club of San Francisco at 100, you can find more information on Sam's contributions to our Club and to Rotary.
