Passing of Ismael Torres, Building Services Retiree

It is with sadness that I inform you of the passing of Ismael Torres, an MCC Building Services retiree, on February 24, 2019.

Ismael joined MCC in 1985 as a heavy laborer and served the college for 23 years. During his career, he helped contain a fire that broke out in Building 7 in 1997. Facilities described the incident then as "probably the largest disaster ever suffered by MCC." Ismael was praised for his "selfless, dedicated and invaluable assistance" in helping Facilities contain the situation and for his role in recovery operations "to the extent that school could resume on Monday almost as though nothing had happened." Ismael retired in 2008.

At the time of this posting, service details and his obituary were not available.
