I wonder if this has ever happened before in Boilermaker history. In 1960, at Danskammer Powerhouse in Newburgh, N.Y., my first Boilermaker foreman was Frank Mellon, a great Boilermaker.
Forty-one years later, my last foreman was his son, Jack Mellon, who I worked for in Brooklyn, N.Y., before I retired from Local 5.
God bless the Boilermakers and their families, because they are the best.
