SWRCC Carpenter Spotlight – Retired Brother Ted Beltran
Anaheim – The Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters would like to honor and recognize longtime union member Ted Beltran. Mr. Beltran, 84, recently got in touch with SWRCC Local 803 because he wanted to donate a Skilsaw to the Buena Park training program. Business Representative Lamar Hanger went to visit Ted, collect the saw, reconnect with the longtime member, and thank him in person for the donation.
Lamar learned that from 1955 to 1958 Ted served in the United States Army as an infantry rifleman man. Upon returning to civilian life and undecided on a career direction, a friend introduced brother Ted to the Carpenters. In 1959 he joined the union while working residential. Brother Ted worked himself up the ranks from apprentice to journeyman and later managing work as a foreman. Lamar notes that Ted mentioned he is fortunate and blessed to receive a great retirement and will forever be a proud union carpenter.
Now retired, Ted resides in Anaheim enjoying golf and his retirement.
We here at the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters want to thank Brother Ted Beltran for his U.S. military service and for his 30 years of service as a professional union Carpenter.
