In Memory of a Fallen Angel

[box type=”shadow” ]Ricardo Corrales - Construction AngelsOn April 17, 2012 with great sadness Construction Angels announced an accidental fatality within our Road Construction industry. Fallen Angel, Mr. Ricardo Corrales, passed away after an accident on Hillsboro Boulevard in Deerfield Beach, FL. He was 53 years old. His brother and two nephews worked with him at the company. Construction Angels were there to assist Ricardo’s family thanks to your support.  In a perfect world we would have no more fallen angels, but reality is we will and with all of our support Construction Angels can respond to them.[/box]

Construction Angels Going Vertical

Construction Angels (CA) would like to give a special thanks to all the donors, contractors and associations who over the last two years have assisted CA in their mission to provide immediate assistance to the families of road and bridge construction workers who tragically lost their lives on the job site. Your donations and support are the life blood of our existence. From my heart and on behalf of the entire organization…thank you and bless you.

In an effort to keep all of our amazing supporters up to speed with the direction of CA, effective January 1, 2014, Construction Angels will expand their wings over our brothers and sisters working in the all construction trades (electrical, plumbing, mechanical, masonry, inspectors, testing companies, carpentry, roofing, concrete pump-place-finish, etc) in addition to our amazing road and bridge family. Fatalities are an ugly part of the very difficult tasks we all face on a day to day basis and it will take ALL OF US, regardless of your specific trade of choice, to make a difference to assist ‘ONE OF OUR OWN’. It is without doubt that with the continued participation from ALL associations, companies, safety councils, and individuals helping to raise awareness and funds, CA will have the capability to assist the families who have experienced the ultimate loss…as stated above…that is CA’s mission!

Respectfully,

Kristi Ronyak, President & Founder

Construction Angels are the First Responders to those Road Construction families in need of assistance when the unthinkable has happened to them.  We believe in family values and the constant support of our own niche industry. Its services are designed to provide an integrated approach to create quality of life for family members whose head of household has had the misfortune to be involved in a tragic and fatal accident. The road construction industry provides smooth roads and highways to travel upon during our everyday life.  We hope to facilitate the avoidance of unexpected paths for workers and their families via facilitating access to safety information and providing a smooth transition if an unexpected path does occur.  The Organization will provide the following assistance to a family in need, which will include, but is not limited to:  financial assistance, access to Safety, Spiritual Guidance and Hospice through our Affiliates page on our website[/author]
