LU 159 Members,

It is with great sorrow I write that our Brother Anjel Valasquez Rivera passed away on March 12th at just 56 years old. Anjel has been a member of Local 159 as a Drywall Finishers for over 14 years and most recently worked for M&H. Anjel’s wife and children have invited his friends from Local 159 to come out and celebrate his life with them on Friday March 25th from 9am-12pm at Affordable Cremation & Burial located at 2127 W. Charleston Blvd.

Local 159 sends our deepest condolences to Anjel’s family and friends. He will be missed.
