Bronx mourns passing of Michael
Nunez, a driving force in borough
by John Roche
July 1, 2004) The death this week of longtime community
activist Michael Nunez, who served as president of the South Bronx Board
of Trade and with numerous other organizations, will leave a tremendous
void in the community, according to his family, colleagues, and friends.
But while Nunez, who died Saturday morning of
an apparent heart attack at the age of 74, leaves large shoes to fill,
his decades of professional involvement, leadership and volunteer
activism also leave a legacy of commitment that should inspire others to
continue his widespread efforts to further nurture and improve the Bronx
and its people.
