Local Lodge S6 Mourns The Loss Of Union Family

Local Lodge S6 is deeply saddened by the fatal car accident that took place last Friday; 5/14/21, on Route 1 in Brunswick, ME. This tragedy took the lives of our Union Brother Anthony Astor, his wife Dawn, and their granddaughter six-year-old Eleina. Eleina’s younger brother; Carson Astor, survived the crash.

Our hearts are with Anthony’s sons Anthony Astor Jr; an L40, and his brother Matthew Astor; a W12. As part of our BIW family, we are keeping them in our thoughts and prayers. We will be holding a gate collection this Thursday, May 20th, at all gates and facilities. Additionally, the family has started a Go Fund Me Page. The link is below.
