Dear Brothers and Sisters,
It is with deep sorrow that I inform you of the sudden passing of Local 1212 Executive Board member, Frank Dulzaides on Saturday, November 12, 2022, at the age of fifty-five.
During his 30-year tenure as a member of Local 1212, he embodied the spirit of organized labor, fighting tirelessly for his fellow union brothers and sisters. At WXTV, Univision, he was employed as an ENG technician, and was a member of the negotiating committee and a shop steward who mentored fellow technicians and encouraged them to become more active in the Local. In 2015 he expanded his focus beyond WXTV and successfully ran for a position on the Local 1212 Executive Board.
Frank loved to cover the local news. He was an Edward R. Murrow and Emmy award winning news photographer and editor. He was immensely proud of his work and his co-workers that collaborated with him. From press conferences to breaking news, Frank covered it all.
Frank’s role in the Union and as a photographer for Univision was still just a small piece of who he was. He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. Our hearts and prayers go out to Frank’s family during this incredibly difficult time. Frank’s cheerful outlook, memorable laugh and kind demeanor will be missed by all who knew him.
I thank you for your friendship and support through the years. I will miss you.
May you Rest in Peace.
