According to several sources, Local 814 member William Ashby passed away last Sunday. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends.
We have heard that he was in a car accident approximately a month ago and that that may have played a role in his sudden passing. Will was one of the original 814 workers at TOPS and was a strong union man whose particpation helped 814 win the 6 week long strike at that company. Will was only 45 years old. He will be missed by the many union brothers and sisters that knew him.
Brother William B Ashby
