We regret to announce the death of IBEW 1245 member and PG&E Meter Maintenance Tech David Spurgeon. Preliminary reports indicate that Brother Spurgeon died when his vehicle flipped over into a canal while he was driving on a levee road. He was 52 years old and had been working for PG&E for the past 28 years.
“This accident serves as a stark reminder that we must be ever-vigilant and acutely aware of the potentially life-threatening hazards that our members encounter every day, whether they’re on a job, in transit, or even taking a break,” said IBEW 1245 Business Manager Tom Dalzell. “Our deepest condolences go out to David’s mother, as well as his friends and co-workers. As we honor the memory of Brother David, we must also strive to renew our commitment to the safety of all IBEW 1245 members.”
More information will be posted when it becomes available.
