Family of L-83 member gives thanks, shares message of hope

THE FAMILY OF Micheal Stutzman, Local 83 [Kansas City, Mo.], wishes to thank Local 83 members and members throughout the United States for the cards, memorials, flowers, and phone calls we received. A special thanks to those who came to Mike’s visitation and service.

Mike truly loved being a Boilermaker. He was proud of what he did and he did it well. He worked very hard and expected the same from others. He believed in the Brotherhood and that you should all stick together. His greatest wish was that the experienced Boilermakers would pass on these qualities to the young Boilermakers.

Spouse says husband was truly a Boilermaker

I WOULD LIKE to thank everyone who sent flowers, cards, donations, and prayers for my husband, Bobby Joe Williams [Local 108, Birmingham, Ala.]. He was a true Boilermaker who loved his union sisters and brothers. When he got too sick to read the Reporter, I read it to him. He never forgot his friends and family. You are in my prayers. God bless each and every one of you.

BRENDA WILLIAMS, wife of Bobby Joe Williams
Jasper, Ala.

Editor’s note: Williams passed away Nov. 5, 2007.
