A memorial service is scheduled Wednesday for Roger W. Goubeaux, Los Angeles area labor relations leader, who died May 7 at the age of 59.
The service will be at 7 p.m. at St. Paul the Apostle Church, 10750 Ohio Ave., Los Angeles.
Goubeaux died of a heart attack in his sleep at his Westwood home.
He had been director of the National Labor Relations Board's Region 31, a seven-county district based in Los Angeles, for the past 12 years.
"Roger Goubeaux was an outstanding attorney and manager," NLRB Chairman James M. Stephens said in a statement issued in Washington. "His dedicated service and intelligent leadership will be sorely missed by his fellow employees and by the labor relations community in the Los Angeles area."
A native of Ohio and an Air Force veteran, Goubeaux earned bachelor's and law degrees from Ohio State University before beginning his career with the NLRB office in Cleveland.
