On behalf of the Scarborough Local, we offer condolences to the family of Rob and Lisa Manchester and their daughter Katie.

Brother Manchester was a Letter Carrier at West Beaver Creek on walk 1563. Prior to working as a Letter Carrier he was a Mail Service Courier.

Brother Manchester and his wife were killed Saturday evening while celebrating their seventeenth wedding anniversary, by a street racing accident in Aurora. They are survived by their seven year old daughter Katie.

The employees of Richmond Hill Main and West Beaver Creek have raised over one thousand dollars for Katie and a trust fund has been set up at the TD Canada Trust in Richmond Hill. They raise a challenge to the other locations in the local to help a fallen brother’s daughter.

Brother George Pratt, will contact station stewards and activists about this tragic event, in the near future.

In Solidarity
