Fred Saburro has passed away



May 10, 2019

Dear NABET-CWA Family,
 
It is with a very heavy heart that I write to inform you that our dear friend and colleague Fred Saburro died yesterday afternoon.  Freddie has struggled with health issues during the past several months, and yesterday God called him home to rest in eternity.
 
Freddie was a totally devoted leader, an extremely loyal friend and a true gentleman.  His imprint on each of us, and his impact on our Union, will be missed in a profound way, but we will never forget him.  As we mourn his passing, we must also celebrate the remarkable life of this legendary leader – the “Godfather of NABET.”
 
Freddie’s life was truly a life well lived.  We all have special memories of Freddie, and dozens of funny stories from our time with him.  Focusing on those memories and stories will help each of us through this very sad period.
 
At this time, Freddie’s wife Ida and the Saburro family are asking for space and privacy.  Out of respect for those wishes, please refrain from any telephone calls to the family during the next several days.
 
When we have further information, we will share it with you.
 
With regret and sympathy,

Charlie Braico
NABET-CWA
