It is with a deep sense of sadness and regret that I must report to you the passing of our 55 Year Retired Member Brother Herb Messing on April 2, 2019.  Brother Messing was born in 1928 and initiated into Local One in 1954. His father, Max, was a Local One Member as well as his brother Irving. Brother Messing served his country in both the U.S. Navy as well as the U.S. Air Force.  His long and illustrious career included work on such iconic shows including The Ed Sullivan Show, The Jackie Gleason Show, The Perry Como Show and many Miss Universe Pageants. In the world of theatre, he worked throughout the jurisdiction including The Imperial Theatre, The Palace Theatre and was the Master Electrician at The Jacobs (formerly The Royale) Theatre from 1984 – 2014. He will be missed by family and friends alike.
