"Be proud.....  

     of who you are,

          what you do

                  and the craft you ply!

It is with a heavy heart that we report the passing of our General President, Patrick Finley.  Brother Finley joined Local 592 in August of 1979 and served in various capacities for the Local until he joined the International Staff as a Deputy International Rep in May of 1995. Brother Finley was then appointed General Secretary-Treasurer in September 1, 1996.  He was elected to the same position at the August 2, 1999 International Convention.  Brother Finley remained as General Secretary-Treasurer until his appointment to General President on January 1, 2007 with the retirement of then General President John Dougherty. Patrick Finley was subsequently re-elected to the position at the 50th International Convention held in August 2009 and again at the 51st Convention, held in August 2014.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Fred's Footsteps, PO Box 315, Gladwyne, PA 19035
