We are saddened to report the passing of new IBEW 1245 member Leland Neva. Brother Neva passed away on Nov. 7 after complications from a motorcycle accident a week prior.
“I guided Leland on his journey to becoming a brother and he was so grateful for the opportunities 1245 had given him,” his friend and fellow IBEW 1245 member Joe Bosch wrote just after Neva’s passing. “Leland was a huge member of his community in Oroville California, a combat vet, a member of the American Legion chapter 95 and president of the Legion riders chapter 95 (a motorcycle group within the American Legion).”
Brother Neva had recently started working as a 1245 Outside Line flagger prior to his accident. He leaves behind a fiancée and five children, and his family could use our support during this heart-breaking time. Please contribute what you can using the link below.
