It is again with a heavy heart that we must inform the membership of the passing of another Local 728 Gold Card member, that of 30 year member, 63 year old Roger Lattin. Roger was well known for his selfless dedication to the safety, education and training of all his 728 sisters and brothers as well as set lighting technicians throughout the industry. Roger was always willing to lend a hand and share his vast knowledge of electrical standards with anyone who would listen. We are truly blessed and grateful to have held the privilege and honor of calling him brother.
It is with a heavy heart that I have to inform our membership that Local 728 Gold Card member Richard McConihay, aka "Dick" "Captain Dickie" has passed away at the age of 81. Dick was a long time Sergeant at Arms of Local 728 and many of us know him as the door keeper of our union meetings.
