is with a heavy heart that we announce contractor and member Larry Gunthorpe
passed away August 19, 2018. Our thoughts and prayers go to his family,
and friends. Larry served the 3MCA and Local 333 in many different roles.
Larry served as the President of the Mid-Michigan Mechanical Contractors, and
in doing so gave many hours to the Local 333 JATC, Pension Fund, Health &
Welfare Fund, Scholarship Fund, and many rounds of contract negotiations.
Larry also took pride in maintaining his UA membership as a contractor.
He will be sorely missed.
