The Passing of International Vice President Timothy F. Magee

Timothy F. Magee, First International Vice President of the IATSE, passed away at his home in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, on the morning of July 6, 2012.

Vice President Magee served the International as a Vice President since he was unanimously elected in 1995.  He served on the Board with dignity and dedication in his duties as both a Vice President and a full-time International Representative.

Tim was a co-founder and Chairman of the Local 38 Pension Fund, and was a member of the Michigan Film Advisory Board. He was instrumental in getting the Michigan Film Incentives established.  Tim worked hard to acquire Local 38’s new building, which was dedicated to him in 2011.

When Brother Magee spoke, people listened. He was a good negotiator, and fought long and hard to establish pension and health benefits. The International is extremely grateful for his extraordinary service.

As a demonstration of the General Executive Board’s deep appreciation, the Board unanimously passed the following resolution in tribute to Vice President Magee:
