It is with heavy hearts that we announce the loss of our dear friend and our Union brother Battista Bosa. Battista passed away on May 23, 2016 at the age of 81. Battista was a loyal and strong trade unionist. He was a long-standing member of Local 1611 with over 50 years of service and served as an Executive Board Member of Local 1611’s Retiree Council. Battista was not only a well-respected individual; he was a loving husband and father.
Battista was a Knight of Columbus and was active for over sixty years in his family parish. His funeral mass was held at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Vancouver. The church was overflow with more than 500 people in attendance to honour and pay final respects to an incredible man who cared deeply for his family, friends and the working person.
His memory will not soon be forgotten, we will miss him deeply. Our condolences and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.
Rest in Peace our good brother.
Officers, Members and Staff of Local 1611
