It is with a heavy heart that I pass along to you the sad news that our Brother, Friend, and Labor Leader, Richard Sanchez, Retired P/DBR of DL 947, has passed. Brother Sanchez was a fierce warrior and a good and loyal friend to me and many others. He is survived by his wife Mari Lue, children Ricky and Amber, and many grandchildren. Please keep his family and those close to him in your thoughts and prayers.
If you would like to say goodbye, his memorial is being held at Alhiser Comer Mortuary, 225 So. Broadway, Escondidio CA, 92025 on June 20th from 4 p.m.-8 p.m. And his mass will be the following day at Resurrection Church at 10:00 a.m. His legacy as the leader at the helm of DL 947 will continue on in our fight for working families. In P/DBR Sanchez’s words,”let me tell you something, every worker needs a champion.” And he was ours. You will be missed brother, but we will continue his, and our, mission to fight!
