District 751 was sad to learn of the passing of former Business Representative Ray Baumgardner on Jan. 12, 2017 from complications of ALS.
Ray joined the IAM in 1986 when he hired into the Boeing Everett plant and became active in our Union. He held numerous officer positions in Local A, including Local A President and District Council Delegate, as well as serving as Union Steward for many years before becoming a full-time Business Representative in 1997. He proudly served as Business Rep until he took a medical retirement from IAM 751 in November 2015.
For those who knew Ray and want to pay their respects, the service will be held on:
Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017 at 11 a.m at Bonney-Watson Capitol Hill (1732 Broadway, Seattle)
