We deeply regret to announce the passing of IBEW 1245 member Robert Anderson, who worked as a lead electrical technician with PG&E’s Protection, Test and Automation team.
“Robert collapsed Tuesday morning while working at the FMC Substation in San Jose. He was rushed to O’Connor Hospital in San Jose, where he unfortunately passed away. At this time, we don’t have details on the cause of Robert’s collapse,” reports Joe Bentley of PG&E. “Robert, who was based in Bakersfield, had been with PG&E for 20 years. He was passionate about his work and cared deeply for his department, serving as a safety lead and safety chair to raise issues on behalf of all electrical technicians on his team. He also chaired committees dedicated to design changes and product quality. His meticulous testing reflected his commitment to electric reliability. Robert was beloved among his coworkers, and they deeply feel his passing. Let’s take the time to support them as they work through this loss.”
More information will be posted here as it becomes available.
