Bill Lux receives a gift given by President Meyer on
behalf of LU 614 as his wife Janet looks on. Bill’s last
day was August 2, 2013, after over 51 years of service.
VP of Operations, Eric Helt presents Bill and Janet
with an honorarium from PECO Energy for over 51
years of dedicated service.
DSO Trouble Men Fred Town and Joe Massucci

paternal influence will be deeply missed!
Emil Meyer presents Bill Lux with the $100
bill he “spotted on the ground and snatched up”
the last year they worked together in the field.
In a good natured pun on his longevity, Brother Bill receives back the “first” insulator he ever installed. A rare threadless glass McMicking circa. 1870
Dear Brother Bill,
As you enter into this exciting new phase in your journey please allow me, on behalf of our membership, to congratulate you on reaching this milestone and to celebrate your selfless contribution to our Brotherhood and your extraordinary and distinguished career at PECO Energy.
Please also know we cannot help but feel a certain sense of bittersweet melancholy as many of us fondly contemplate the many years we’ve had the privilege of sharing the field with you in this most dangerous trade and which now forms a warm patchwork of subtle vignettes indelibly etched in the deepest recesses of our collective minds eye.
I know many others also share these same feelings for you and wish you and Janet every blessing and the deepest joy one can experience while still in this world.
I personally wish to thank you for modeling that all too rare quality of humility and deep concern for others that made it easy for me to plumb the depths of your vast experience and knowledge. You always left me with the sense; that my opinions were important and my perspective valued. I still struggle to model that sublime character trait, which comes so naturally to you, even to this day.
With deepest Gratitude and Warmest Wishes,
Emil J Meyer
President / Business Manager
Local Union # 614, IBEW
