It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the passing of Honourary Member, Brother Tom McCann on May 2, 2021 at the age of 83.
Brother McCann had dedicated his life in looking after the members of Local 50. Brother McCann held various positions within Local 50, including Business Manager and also held the position of IUEC Regional Director of Canada. He was always personable and born with the gift of the gab. His Irish sense of humour and love for Ireland was evident every day. Tom took great pride in the IUEC and was a pleasure to be around as he always enjoyed good cheer and good company. God bless.
Please join me in extending our heart-felt sympathies to his family and friends. He will be missed.
