(February 26, 1919 - January 5,1989)

—Champion of the Working Man —

John Edward Lawe, stood tall in the U.S. labor movement, a union man all his working life: 35 years with the Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO as a dues-paying
member, officer and international president (1985-1989). He was a dynamic local union leader: forceful negotiator: forward
looking labor statesman and thoughtful labor spokesman. This emigrant from Kilgass, Strokestown, County Roscommon, Ireland, befriended and helped all
struggling emigrant peoples. A proud Irish American (chosen grand marshal of New York City's 1987 St. Patrick's Day Parade), John was faithful to and supportive of both his native land and his adopted country. he was a dutiful husband, loving and protective father, an involved and much-honored
community citizen. A concerned Roman Catholic gentleman. He passed this way and left it better for his passing.
