In Memoriam: Bernard Igwe 1942 – 2018

Bernard Igwe 1942 – 2018

TRU faculty and TRUFA have lost a valuable colleague, a dedicated instructor and a passionate advocate with the passing of Bernard Igwe. Bernard served as a UCCFA / TRUFA shop steward nearly continuously for 28 years and was elected Chief Steward for 8 years. His dedication to his fellow faculty and his mentoring of a generation of union activists will be profoundly missed.

A funeral service for Bernard will take place at 11:00 am on Friday, March 2, 2018 at Sacred Heart Cathedral, at the corner of Nicola Street at 3rdAvenue.
