I am sad to announce that Brother Andrew J. Mihok, Journeyman Lineman, Card #D73740 passed away on Monday November 26th. Andy was initiated into Local 1249 on December 27, 1955 and he became Business Manager of Local 1249 in 1982. From the stories I have heard, Andy was a true leader and he led with an iron fist until he retired in November 1995. IBEW Local 1249 is strong today because of Andy's strong leadership skills and always fighting for its members! RIP Brother.
