    (April 5, 1942-January 27, 2019)
    Born in United States
    Grandson of Charles Merrill (of Merrill Lynch & Company) and son of Robert Magowan (chief executive officer of Safeway)
    Managing general partner of the San Francisco Giants (1993– )
    Director at Daimler Chrysler
    Stanford University graduate (1964)
    Businessman of the Year (1993, San Francisco Business Times)
    Barry Bonds (then a free agent) was his first major acquisition.
    He believes lifetime .280 hitters who batted .200 partway through the season will go back up to .280 by the playoffs (too optimistic).
    He donated $2000 to the 2004 Bush/Cheney campaign (small, but still).
    He named his cat ‘Magowan.’
    He received his masters’ degree from Oxford University (1966).
    He pioneered the construction of what eventually became AT&T Park — without any planned taxpayer assistance.
    That stadium would go on to rank second in total attendance among all 30 Major League Baseball teams.
    He was a 37-year veteran of the Safeway franchise, including 13 seasons as CEO and Chairman of the Board.
    He was instrumental in keeping the Giants from relocating to Tampa Bay (1992).
