Bob Douglas, Local 21 Illinois — Retired IU Craft Director Members of the BAC Executive Council paused for a moment of silence in memory of Bob Douglas of Local 21 Illinois, a retired member of the Council who had served as Craft Vice President for Finishers. Brother Douglas passed away on January 21, 2013 in Bloomingdale, Illinois. He was 79. Douglas also served as the International Union’s Tile/Marble/Terrazzo Craft Director for Finishers. In remembering his many contributions to the Union, BAC President James Boland said of the late Local leader and IU Field Staff member, “Bobby was a knowledgeable and fearless advocate for the TMT trades and was instrumental in paving the way for the members of the former Helpers International to affiliate with BAC back in 1987.” He is survived by his wife Barbara.
