It is with a heavy heart that we announce the tragic death of new IBEW 1245 member Zackary Randalls, who was shot and killed while on a work-related ride-along in downtown Fresno on April 18, 2017.
Six weeks ago, Brother Randalls enthusiastically began working as a Customer Service Rep at PG&E in Fresno. He was known for his love of classic cars, tattoos, his family and the LA Dodgers. He spoke often about how excited he was to have finally secured a job at PG&E. His colleagues describe him as “full of life,” but his life was cut short far too soon when he became the victim of a senseless shooting that also claimed two other lives.

The Fresno police have called the incident “a random act of violence” and noted that the victims did nothing to provoke the shooting. The suspected shooter has been taken into custody, and police believe this suspect is also responsible for another recent murder of a security guard at a Fresno motel.
Randalls leaves behind his wife, Katie, and two young children, Dutch and Stella. The Company and Union have arranged vacation sale for the family, and details can be found here. Friends are also collecting donations for his family via GoFundMe (see links below). Additional information will be posted as it becomes available.
