Working with Onix on a project this past year was a privilege. Despite the challenges we faced, his grace, patience & determination always shined through. He was always kind, quick to lift spirits and diffuse tensions. My last few weeks on the project, Onix always greeted me with a huge smile & genuine happiness for me.
My deepest sympathies to Onix's family and friends. My thoughts are with all of you.

With love,
Melissa Spiga

To Onix's family & friends, there are no words that express the depth of this loss. I had the pleasure of working with Onix over the last year on a project with Spacefitters. He was a genuine person with a contagious smile that I will miss. Wishing you peace and comfort during this difficult time.

My deepest sympathies,
Rita Petta
