The NPMHU Announces the Passing of Seattle P&DC Mail Handler Querubin “Sonny” Quitlong

     It is with regret and sorrow that the National Union announces the passing of Seattle P&DC Mail Handler Querubin “Sonny” Quitlong. His death is attributed to complications from the coronavirus. Sonny began working at the USPS as a part-time regular on April 6, 1994. For decades Sonny also worked full-time as at Safeway before becoming full time at the USPS. Sonny continued to work the two jobs until he fell ill on March 4.

     Sonny was very active in his community including serving as Vice President and President of the Filipino American Association of Certified Public Accountants. He loved attending cultural festivals and was devoted to his church where he served as lector. Sonny is survived by his loving wife Zenaida and many devoted nieces and nephews Sonny will be remembered as being a hard worker, career long union member, and he was a pleasure to work with. Sonny will be sorely missed. Please keep the family in your prayers.
