  • On behalf of the UNIFOR retired Workers Council we offer our most sincere condolences to Romeo's family and friends. We knew Romeo through his involvement and participation in organized labour specifically through his time as a delegate to the Winnipeg Labour Council. Romeo was a dedicated and passionate unionist and mentor to many at the WLC. We grieve at his loss - he will be missed. Thank you for your time.

  • It is with respectful sadness that I learn of Uncle Romeo passing. Although we were not close, we often attended Winnipeg Labour Council Meetings. Romeo was a staunch supporter of the Labour movement and will be fondly remembered by his peers, as well as Family. It is never easy to lose a Loved One. May he rest in Peace. - Posted by: Ivan Milne (Nephew) on: Mar 03, 2019
