In Loving Memory of Henry Gutierrez Jr. of Gutierrez Disposal

Michael Wetzel
As you all have heard about the shootings in San Bernardino, I just wanted you to know that one of those killed was Michael Wetzel. Michael was a supervisor of Environmental Health Services at San Bernardino County and a SWANA member. I had the good fortune to work with my Michael setting up a MOLO Training@Work program last June for some of our members at SBC. He was a very nice guy. He leaves a wife and six kids and was only 37 years ago. I guess you never know where tragedy will strike and who you may know. Please say a prayer for him and his family.

Henry Gutierrez Jr.

Company: Gutierrez Disposal

Years of Service: 35

Comments: “Henry is real big in our city. They even named a park after him,” Correu said. “He goes around to the police and fire departments every year and drops off tamales.”

We will not forget you, Henry Gutierrez Jr..
