Passing of Retiree Hector Cortes

It is with sadness that I inform the College community of the passing of Hector Cortes, an MCC Facilities Department retiree, on March 3, 2019.

Hector joined MCC in 1983 as a heavy laborer in Building Services and was promoted to maintenance mechanic in the Facilities Department two years later. He achieved the position of senior mechanic in 2004.

Hector was consistently praised for his quality, detail-oriented work and positive attitude. His commendations include having received the Distinguished Support Staff Award three times in 2003. After nearly 30 years of service, he retired in 2012.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, March 16, at 4 p.m. at Faith Temple, 1876 Elmwood Ave., Rochester, NY 14620.
