Honor Guard Activation

, ,

Brothers and Sisters,

I know earlier in the week I sent the notice of the passing of Brother Truevillian from Chicago, L2. Brother Truevillian, 55, passed away on December 17th from COVID-19. I know that in that notice, you were all told his services were incomplete and that a memorial service would take place at a later date.

Since that notice, we have received additional information. On the orders of President Sullivan, the AFFI Honor Guard has been activated. I know this is short notice, but I hope you will all do whatever you can to help us honor Brother Truevillian, his family, and his Local.

His services are as follow:

VISITATION: Sunday, December 27th, 2020 at Russo Hillside Chapels- 4500 Roosevelt Rd. Hillside, IL 60162 from 1500-2000hrs. There will be a fire department walk-thru at 1900hrs. Honor Guard members are asked to arrive no later than 1830hrs. Please make sure you have a plain black mask to wear. We ask that you remain outside until the walk-thru, and maintain appropriate social distance.

SERVICE: Monday, December 28th, 2020 at Russo Hillside Chapels- 4500 Roosevelt Rd. Hillside, IL 60162 at 1100hrs. Services will be streamed at: vimeo.com/494181537

INTERMENT: Monday, December 28th, 2020 at Oakridge-Glen Oak Cemetery- 4301 W. Roosevelt Rd. Hillside, IL 60162 immediately following the service.

If you have any questions, please route them thru the Honor Guard Chain of Command. I know that even in these difficult times, and under these circumstances, we will all do “Whatever it Takes” to Honor, Cherish, Remember, and Salute Brother Truevillian, his family, and his Local.
