Passing of Lester Wright

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our union brother Lester Wright on October 9, 2020.

Lester was a retired Income Maintenance Case Worker for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and a Vietnam Veteran who served his country in the Air Force.

He spent many years as an active retiree member of SEIU Local 668 and on our Civil and Human Rights Committee. Two of the biggest causes Lester cared about were making healthcare accessible to all and legalizing marijuana.  His favorite saying to post on social media was: I am sticking with my union.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Lester’s family, friends, and his union sisters and brothers. His smiling face and friendship will be greatly missed.
