In Memoriam
Chad Angel


Chad’s spirit was intense and passionate when representing his members. Local 284 feels a tremendous personal loss for its Brothers and Sisters, and recognizes that everyone Chad worked with will bear a heavy burden, as they struggle with his passing.

Chad’s compassion and warmth will stay in our hearts as we try to carry on his work. It should be remembered that Chad had just concluded bargaining a contract for the members of Coca-Cola where he worked for many years. True to form, Chad gave those negotiations everything he had.

Chad Thomas Angel
1983-2018
