Tribute to Brother Terry McGuire

It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of Terry McGuire, member of Local 97 and 50-year member of the Iron Workers International. 

Brother McGuire passed away at an Edmonton hospital peacefully, with family at his side, after a brief battle with cancer. 

Brother McGuire held a very special talent for artistry besides being a great ironworker and an amazing person. 

Terry’s passion as an outstanding artist and his famous illustrations, such as Hanging Iron, are well known throughout the Ironworkers across North America. 

Terry will be greatly missed; however, it is comforting to know his legend will live on through his amazing Ironworker illustrations. 

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the McGuire family and friends, including Steve McGuire, a Local 720 member and second-generation Ironworker. Rest in Peace Brother.  Fraternal Regards.
