All of us at Right of Way are heartbroken by the tragic loss of such a hard-working and talented young man, Marvin Ponce. He was a cherished member of our workplace family and his passing is an enormous loss to all of us.
Our most heartfelt condolences, thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family, including his 1-year-old baby girl whom he adored, and we will do all we can to support them during this most difficult time.
Marvin worked for Right of Way for three years in the traffic control department and was described by all as one of ROW’s most hard-working and easy-going employees.
“He was never late, he worked hard and treated all of his coworkers with respect. He was a model employee and more importantly, a good man” said company president, Wes Mollno.
At this time we are working with the local authorities to help with this investigation. Anyone with additional information on this incident should contact LAPD Detective Herman Frettlohr at 213-712-2969.
This tragic incident occurred at the end of the day Wednesday while Marvin was cleaning up traffic control equipment from a Venice construction site.
Right of Way is doing everything possible to ensure the safety of all of its employees, and will continue to provide support as needed.
“Marvin was a family man, and he worked hard to take care of his family, especially his daughter,” said co-worker and close friend, Mario Recinos. “He was never negative, always gave positive advice and always had a big smile on his face.”
Marvin will remain in the hearts of all who knew him forever.
