Peter Ulloa RIP
Join Team March in remembering Peter Ulloa, a laborer at March Field since July 2011, who passed unexpectedly June 25. “Peter Ulloa was an outstanding employee and a great team player. I have never met such a cheerful employee who made me want to smile just from being around him,” said Michelle Converse, assistant lodging manager for the March Inn. “He was an inspiration to his co-workers and supervisors, was a hard worker and appreciated the joy from a job well done. He had great ideas for what lodging could become with a little ‘TLC’ and we hope to continue making the improvements that he suggested,” Converse said. “We will truly miss seeing his smiling face, knowing we were blessed to have known him, even for a short while. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this sad time, especially his wife Sandy.”
