Brother Joe Sgro

Sisters & Brothers, As you are aware we recently lost Brother Joe Sgro. He was a well respected Locomotive Engineer that everyone looked forward to working with. He will be sorely missed by those of us were fortunate enough to have known him.

Left us far too soon   

Joe's passing has left a large void in the life of his wife and the two daughters that he was so proud of. With that in mind, we ask that you consider helping his family if you are able.

Brother Derek Carron will be accepting donations on behalf of the Sgro family. You can e-transfer him at
