The officers and staff of Local 888 extend our deepest sympathies to the families of:
- Michael Moran, 33. Scituate. He was the son of Michelle Moran, chapter president of the Scituate school secretaries.
- Algird “Al” A. Zenkus, 67, of Worcester, a Local 888 retiree who served as a dedicated shop steward and executive board member. He was an electrician for the Worcester Housing Authority for 32 years prior to his retirement.
- Clarence “Jeep” Jones, 86, father of Meta Jones, an employee at Boston’s Department of Neighborhood Development and a member of Local 888. He served as deputy mayor under Mayor Kevin White before being appointed to the BRA board, from which he retired in 2013. A park off Boston’s Malcolm X Boulevard bears his name.
- Charles “Chuck” Henry Turner, 79, of Roxbury, died at home following a long battle with cancer. He served as a Boston city councilor and was a longtime activist with such groups as the Boston Jobs Coalition.
