Memorial service set for activist Sidney Culver Jr.

Sidney CulverA memorial service has been set for Saturday, April 15, 2017 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. to remember Sidney Culver Jr., 57, a longtime CSEA activist from the Poughkeepsie School District Unit who died March 30.

The remembrance, hosted by family, will be held at the Alumnae House at Vassar College, 161 College Ave., Poughkeepsie.

We are saddened by the loss of our union brother, who served with pride the last decade as a bus driver and custodian in the Poughkeepsie City School District. Sid was a solid union activist who played an integral role in rebuilding the strength of his CSEA bargaining unit. He could always be counted on to stand with his fellow workers and was a good friend to so many. Sid was also a friendly face and role model to students, especially at the district’s Early Learning Center.

Our thoughts are with Sid’s family, friends and co-workers during this difficult time.
