In a statement, the government announced that Ander Caballero, the delegate of the Basque Country in the United States, will attend Cenarrusa’s funeral services this Thursday and Friday, and called Cenarrusa “a great friend and tireless supporter of the Basque Country and of the Basque people in the United States.” Basque President Lehendakari Inigo Urkullu sent condolences and affection to Cenarrusa’s wife, Freda, along with a statement of “gratitude for his immense work and commitment.” You can read the full statement here.
