It is with great sadness that we announce the death of IBEW 1245 Lineman Clifford (Cliff) Bengs of Redding.
Bengs, a 13-year member of Local 1245, was working as an Electric Crew Foreman at PG&E when he was involved in what appears to have been a rigging accident on Sept. 30 that took his life.
“Our deepest condolences go out to Brother Bengs’ family, friends and co-workers,” said Business Manager Tom Dalzell. “As a union, we do everything that we can to ensure our members’ safety at work, but unfortunately, accidents sometimes happen, and in this case, a good man lost his life. He will be honored and remembered.”
Bengs was 40 years old. He is survived by his wife, Norie, and two small children, ages 1 and 3. To send a donation or kind word to Bengs’ family, click here.
