With much regret and a heavy heart I would like to inform the membership of the passing of Lino Acanfora. Lino, as many of the membership will remember, was the former President of the Local Union No. 509. Brother Acanfora spent most of his working career at UPS serving the membership as a Union Steward. In the late 80's he served the membership as Recording Secretary. In the early 90's he was elected Secretary Treasurer and as the decade came to an end, he was elected President of Local Union 509. In January 2002, Brother Acanfora retired with over three decades of service as a Teamster. Brother Acanfora enjoyed his retirement very much, but although he was retired, he often gave a helping hand to Local Union Business Agents sharing his vast knowledge. Brother Acanfora will be greatly missed. Please keep his family and friends in your prayers as they go through this difficult time.
