Henry Ortega

Henry Ortega passed away peacefully in his home on April 3, 2016 at the age of 76. He was born in San Pedro, CA on August 23, 1939 and was a life-long resident. Henry graduated from San Pedro High school in 1957 and enlisted in the United States Army where he proudly served as a paratrooper. After the service Henry returned to his hometown San Pedro where he met and married the love of his life Kathleen Jackson. He worked for Todd Ship Yard for many years as an electrician and later became a longshoreman for the ILWU for 33 years, where he retired as a crane operator in 2012. He was a proud union man for local 13 and would never cross a picket line. Henry is survived by his wife, Kathleen Ortega; children Michael (Vianna) Ortega, Marilyn (John) Slaton; grandchildren Marissa (Jose) Cramer, Ilese (Miguel) Cramer; and great grandson, Dominic Cisneros. Henry was a generous, caring, intelligent man who had a great sense of humor and loved talking to people. He will be deeply missed by his loving family and numerous friends.
