I met Eugene Swinford in the early 70’s soon after earning my journeyman membership in Iron Workers Local Union 481. Through the years we became friends as both iron workers and fellow leaders in the local union. As an iron worker Swinford (most of us called him by his last name for some reason) was a true bridgeman. A term used by iron workers to recognize a true master of the trade. His teaching made many young men, including me, better iron workers and better union members.
As a friend, he was in the top tier on that front as well. When I think of him I remember the way he met you – looking you in the eye with a smile and strong handshake. I like that memory of Swinford. Rest in peace, my friend.
My sincere condolences to the family,
Willie Chapman
