It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of FCRC alumni and US Army veteran, James Abrego. On Thursday, May 24, 2018, James suffered a stroke, which caused injuries he later succumbed to. He was taken off of life support on Saturday, May 26. He is survived by his wife, Eunice, and daughter, Penelope.
James was well loved, had a good heart, and was full of determination. He did not quit. He strived for success and to take care of his family. There was a very large showing of support at the hospital by his friends, former coworkers, and FCRC brothers. Eunice thanks FCRC members for their support.
