We mourn the passing of Retired J.W. Thomas Aeling, who was 84 years old, and had been a Local 569 member for over 60 years. 

Brother Aeling was already a Korean War veteran, by the time he was accepted into our apprenticeship program in mid-1955.   He graduated and became a J.W. in Jan. 1959.  He found a “home” at Fischbach & Moore, staying with them from 1967 – 1978, and during the 80’s including the Intercontinental Hotel proeject. .  Then he was dispatched to Bell Electric in 1978, and he stayed with them for the next 2 years. 

Brother Aeling fully retired in early 1994.  He is survived by his widow, Joan.
