Morty was a very special person. The differences we often shared at CWA Conventions in no way reflected our true relationship. I respected him like no other. Rest In Peace, MR.PRESIDENT. I am so proud to call you my BROTHER and to have had your influence in my life.

Morty was a good friend to all in the house of labor. He never turned his back in any labor issue. Morty was a good friend of the teachers in NY. State and across the nation.
Rest In Peace friend.

Our deepest condolences and prayers at this difficult time. President Bahr was very much loved by Telecom workers of the former Bell System landline phone companies, CWA and IBEW labor unions. He helped us attain the American Dream of a middle-class life with security in our Golden Years. We used to run into brother Morty at the movies, AFI, etc. He was always a gentleman, a true Mensch, if you will permit me to say. We will all cherish his eternal memory.
