We regret to inform you of the passing of one of our own. Dennis Doan passed away yesterday at the age of 64, caused by injuries sustained as a result of an accident on the job, Monday, June 27. Dennis has been a Local 89 member since 1972. Dennis was well liked by his fellow members and will be sorely missed. He was known as a hard worker that always went out of his way to take care of his customers.
Funeral services have not been determined, but as information becomes available Local 89 will make every effort to get it to the membership. Many members have called the Local 89 office expressing concern for Dennis and his family. We do not have details on how to give or where to send something, but we will find out and have that information out as soon as possible.
The exact cause of the accident is not known at this time. The accident is being investigated by WA Labor and Industries, our IBEW Local 89 Safety Committee, and Frontier Communications. Once the investigation is complete, we will share the details so we can all learn from this tragic accident.
