“I am tremendously saddened to report that our good friend and brother Sonny Reed has passed away,” reports Metro Washington Council President Jos Williams. Reed had been battling cancer. “Sonny was a trade unionist through and through, fighting hard for his members yet always with good humor and a ready smile,” said Williams. “It was an honor to have known and worked with Sonny; he will be sorely missed!” Details about funeral arrangements will be posted as soon as they’re available.
