It is with deep sadness that we report the sudden passing of Redwood City icon Steve Penna, publisher of The Spectrum Magazine.
Penna was one of the original board members of the Police Activities League. He was a supporter of the city’s nonprofit and business communities and a fundraiser for many Redwood City events, including the city’s concert series. He also helped to raise $11.5 million to restore Carrington Hall at Sequoia High School, his alma mater. Penna was born on Hilton Street a couple of blocks from the city’s downtown and also attended Hoover Elementary School and Cañada College.
Penna’s magazine won several awards at the 2017 Greater Bay Area Journalism Awards, which was hosted by the San Francisco Press Club.
