Hernan Morales, New York Hilton

Hernan Morales, a steward at the New York Hilton for 21 years, has passed. He was 68. 

His wife, Claudia, said this about her husband, whom she affectionally called ‘Pa’ - “He was a good man and a hard worker, and more than anything he loved helping others,” she said.  She added that not only was he good husband, a good father and a good co-worker, he was a good friend, too.  Pa was the love of my life and I will miss him forever.”

Beatriz Torres, who worked at the New York Hilton with Hernan for many years before becoming a Union organizer, fondly remembers her friend as someone who always looked out for others, “In all the years I have known him, he was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was so caring. Hernan was the type of guy who was always there to lend a hand to anyone who needed it. He was a real trooper.”

Hernan is survived by his wife, two sons, two daughters, four brothers, and four sisters. He will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.
