William “Fluffy” Crosswhite passed away Wednesday, March 23rd, 2022. Brother Crosswhite has been the Dispatcher and a Business Agent for this Local since July 2013. He was initiated in the IBEW on July 19th, 1988. During his 34 years, it’s almost unfathomable to even understand his positive impact not only on the members of IBEW 558 but the entire Brotherhood of this great Union.
He was one of a kind, and will always be remembered as a fierce advocate for the working men and women in organized labor. Locally, he also served as a Board of Directors for the North Alabama Electrical Training Alliance, a delegate to the Shoals Central Labor Council, and was an elected delegate to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers 40th International Convention.
There will be a memorial service in his honor this Sunday, April 3rd, 2022 at 1:00 pm. It will be held at the C.T. Manley Stadium at Colbert County High School. I am requesting that every member, retiree, traveler, and friend of this local come and show his family our sincere sympathy and love during this sad time. We are doing our best to facilitate this and ask for patience throughout the week. Please continue to live up to his family and the Staff in the coming days. Remembering Him, Tony Quillen IBEW 558 BM/FS D967010
