The Engel name is synonymous with Burbank. For nearly ten years, the family has been leading the shelter program at Burbank First Christian Church by coordinating sleepovers, meals, and rallying volunteers. Last weekend we learned that the patriarch of the Engel family, Sam Engel Sr., passed away. Sam spent many evenings supporting the families and was an active member of our community, including the Boy Scouts and Burbank Noon Kiwanis. We send our condolences to the entire Engel family during this difficult time.
