Chris White Memorial Paver

Placing the Chris White Memorial Paver

On the lovely afternoon of Sunday, September 27, the APC Board met to place a memorial paver for former board member Chris White in the Laborer’s Local 942 Memorial Park at the Laborer’s Hall on Davis Road. Lee Stockwell, Chris’s wife of 46 years, also attended. Chris’s energy and infectious enthusiasm for progressive causes were an inspiration to many of us and will not be forgotten. He worked hard in support of the Peace Center, Fairbanks Open Radio (KWRK LP-FM 90.9), the IWW, and many other groups working to make the world a better place. The paver now joins the unmarked tree that was planted in remembrance of Chris at the Laborer’s Hall, where Chris fought long and hard for fairness and justice for rank and file union members. Chris passed away in 2016 and we still miss him. His obituary can be read here.

    Thank you so much for the eloquent post and photos, Alan! I had somehow missed the obituary by Lee when it came out, and it would be uplifting re-reading anyway, so thank you for the link.
