It is with a heavy heart that we announce that former IBEW 1245 Business Rep Richard Dunkin passed away on August 25 at the age of 74 due to illness. Brother Dunkin was initiated into the IBEW in 1967, and worked as a journeyman lineman for many years. He later served as an IBEW business rep, supporting Local 1245 members in outside construction.
“Richard was a great man! He will be missed,” said IBEW 1245 Executive Board member Mike Cottrell. “Our deepest condolences to his family in the loss.”
Brother Dunkin’s dear wife of nearly 30 years, Bonnie, passed away earlier this year after a battle with cancer. Dunkin himself had been dealing with health issues for the better part of a decade, and our entire IBEW family mourns his passing.
More details and condolence sentiments will be posted here as they become available.
A memorial service will be held for Brother Dunkin on Saturday, October 6, at noon at the Lions Club Rodeo Grounds, 19400 Ave 398 Woodlake Ca 93286.
