Lawrence Reyes died today

Michael Novick, KPFK interim General Manager,

“It is my heavy duty to let you know that Lawrence passed peacefully early this afternoon. It is a sad, great loss, deeply felt by all who knew him. His son Taino and ex-wife Gilda Rodriguez were with him, as were I and Jeanine Rohn. His sisters, niece and other relatives were witnessing via a zoom connection provided by UCLA. It was his wish to be cremated and have his ashes taken to Puerto Rico, which the family will carry out. We played a good deal of the zoom recording of people’s tributes and expressions of love for him earlier in the day. The family expressed their thanks for all the love and support shown to him and them. I know we can all take heart from his spirit, and rededicate ourselves to the Pacifica mission and to the cause of humanity, to which he gave his all.”

. . . the horseshoe, left to right: Aryana Gladney, Lawrence Reyes (director), Rodrigo Argueta (director), Chuck Anderson, Lydia Brazon (director & PNB Chair), Fred Klunder, Ron Spriestersbach, Leslie Radford (KPFK General Manager; a non-voter), Luis Garcia y Ayvens; Michael Novick (Treasurer), Tej Grewall (Chair), John Garry (Secretary; a non-voter); Ankine Antaram, John Cromshow, John Wenger (not a delegate – see below), Fred Blair, Kim Kaufman, Steve Pride . . . held at the Aris & Carolyn Anagnos Peace Center, 3916 Sepulveda Blvd, Culver City, CA 90230 . . . Mr Wenger had just served 6 cumulative yrs – but, perversely, the delegates agreed to let him stay sitting on a privileged chair, albeit in silence . . .

. . . what’s striking is the groundhog: the same hot topics, over 7yrs on . . .

. . . after hundreds of hrs of audio-only, seeing is quite different . . .

On YouTube there seems to be only one other KPFK LSB vid, Treasurer Fred Blair’s address to the 21Feb2016 meet (13mins, including an extra-meeting statement by Kim Kaufman), (uploaded by ‘Myla Reson’, the name of a current KPFK delegate, a breaker). Also, there are two vids of the LSB’s attempt to make quorum on 17May2015, the purpose of the meeting being to elect a director, following the PNB’s 30Apr decision to remove Kim Kaufman for allegedly sharing confidential info – with The Anti-Christ & Beelzebub, aka Tracy Rosenberg & Summer Reese (uploaded by ‘Paul Hart’)

Meeting for Lawrence Reyes, 5.30pm PT, Friday 30 December 2022

From Michael Novick, KPFK station manager:

As you may know, our comrade and brother Lawrence Reyes is gravely ill in a coma at UCLA Medical Center on the campus. While he is still with us, we want to record our appreciation of all he means to us and to the causes he struggles for and contributes so much to, to share with his family. He has selflessly devoted many years to KPFK and Pacifica as a volunteer, an elected listener delegate on the Local Station Board and as a director on the Pacifica National Board. I have set up a zoom call so that we can do share our appreciation and concern for him. I hope you can join us this Friday evening. Hold him and his family in your thoughts, prayers and good wishes. Thank you.

The Zoom meeting is 5.30pm Pacific Time, F30Dec2022.
