IN MEMORIAM - Robert Charles Sondheim - May 15, 1951 - April 6, 2019

Robert Sondheim was a fifth generation Seattleite who lived mostly in the Magnolia and Queen Anne areas of Seattle. He was the son of Harold Sondheim (deceased) and Sally (Reingold) Sondheim of Bainbridge Island.

He attended Queen Anne High School and graduated from Willamette University in Salem Oregon with a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science and Economics. After college Robert worked for political campaigns for both the state legislature and the Seattle City Council; and, for one year at the Washington State Capitol in the leadership office suite.

Robert was a co-owner of Rosebud Restaurant with his business partner, John on Capitol Hill for 17 years, a notable place to hang out in the Pike-Pine corridor. Mayors, city and county officials, and local Capitol Hill residents liked to dine at Rosebud. There were many autographed photos of movie stars from Robert's family connections in Hollywood along with the famous Rosebud snow sleds that peppered the walls of the restaurant. During the International Film Festivals, movie and entertainment stars liked to go to Rosebud where they could have a great dining experience and not be bothered by the press or the public after performances. During this time, Robert served for 4 years as President of Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce.

He enjoyed working for the development of Cal Anderson Park and preserving a remnant of historic older buildings that were going to be demolished for new construction using the 'envelope concept' which saved their exterior shells for inclusion into the new architecture. He served on the Board of the Gay City Health project. He was the longest serving volunteer at the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI). He served on the Board of the Seattle Repertory Theatre and the Board of the Des Moines Historical Society. He ran for the Seattle City Council three times. He was a very active member of the Cadillac LaSalle Club for 35 years and was its President twice. He worked during his retirement years at Daystar Retirement Village in West Seattle.

Robert is survived by his life partner, Herman; his mother Sally; his sisters Cindy and Cathy and their children and grandchildren.
