In Memoriam

Our thoughts and condolences are with the family and friends of the following current and retired City employees who have passed away. The number after the name indicates years of service.

Correction: In our “In Memoriam” section in the May 2021 issue, due to a source error, we misspelled the name of Kittara Tongkul, LADWP, with 15 years of City service. He was a well-respected supervisor, and we regret the error. Thanks to Ralph Sanchez, Supervisor, Power Meter Store, LADWP, Club Member, for the correction.
