Bob Lee, the 43-year-old tech titan who founded Cash App and died in an ill-fated Silicon Valley business trip last week, will be laid to rest in his native St. Louis, according to a San Francisco funeral parlor.
Lee, who had lived in San Francisco for about two decades before relocating to Miami, which he described as like “Silicon Valley in the early 2000s,” died last week in a shocking late-night stabbing.
Additional details were not immediately available. The Green Street Mortuary in Chinatown said it had been instructed not to go into specifics.
Lee was a father of two and an executive at Square and MobileCoin.

His final moments were captured on harrowing surveillance video outside the Portside, a high-rise condo complex near San Francisco’s Bay Bridge where a two-bedroom apartment will sell for more than $1 million.

Police arrested a 38-year-old Bay Area man named Nima Momeni on Thursday in connection with the attack, San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott announced during a news briefing.
He said the two knew each other and that police served multiple warrants in both San Francisco and nearby Emeryville in connection with the arrest but released few other details.

City police found Lee with stab wounds in the Rincon Hill neighborhood after 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 4, after he called 911 and pleaded for help.
In an earlier statement, Chief Scott said the department would not be commenting on evidence in the case due to the active investigation. However, he said investigators had been working “tirelessly” to find the killer.
“We followed the evidence, and there was a lot of evidence,” Scott said, but he declined to go into specifics, citing the ongoing investigation.
WHO IS NIMA MOMENI? SUSPECT IN BOB LEE STABBING IN SAN FRANCISCO
Lee left San Francisco for Miami in October and had voiced concerns about public safety in his former home.
A friend, mixed martial artist Jake Shields, told Fox News Digital that Lee’s concerns about rising crime were part of the reason he made the move. The other was that he believed San Francisco had lost its luster and that Miami had an “energy” akin to the tech boom in Silicon Valley at the start of the century.
