Remembering Ronald Hobson

Ron Hobson, Local 884.

Ronald Lewis "Ron" Hobson, immediate past president of AFSCME Local 884 (New Haven City and Board of Education Employees), died Jan. 27, 2016 after a valiant battle with cancer. He was 62.

Ron worked for the New Haven Police Department for 28 years as a 911 operators and police dispatcher. He served 10 years as local union president until 2014.

Local 884 President Doreen Rhodes recalled Hobson as a caring and unselfish leader.

"Ron always had time to offer a helping hand," Rhodes said. "He was there to answer a question or provide advice, even when he was sick. Ron was truly dedicated to the cause. We will miss him deeply."

Council 4 extends deepest sympathies to Ron's family, including his wife Christine, his daughters Tarsha and Ronnae, and his son Chaz.

"Ron made New Haven a better place to live and work," said Council 4 Executive Director Sal Luciano. "I will remember his as a calm, cool and caring leader who embraced the union as a force for good in our world."
