Gordon Holmes, one of Lafayette’s first city council members, has died at the age of 83.

Holmes was one of a small group of men who spearheaded the drive for Lafayette to incorporate as a city in 1968. He became the city’s second mayor in 1969.

Look in Wednesday’s Contra Costa Times for a story and memorial service information.
