The memorial rock was dedicated to Timothy Ray Brown on Saturday.
He was originally known as a “Patient in Berlin”. In 2008, he received an experimental stem cell transplant from an HIV-immune donor in Berlin, Germany.
Doctors say it was a success.
Brown’s partner attended the dedication ceremony.
“It’s a loving compliment to Timothy,” said Brown’s partner Tim Hefgen. “He was a very kind and kind person and wanted to heal everyone.”
Brown became a light of international hope and advocated research on HIV and cancer.
He died of leukemia at his home in Palm Springs last year after living in San Francisco for several years.
