Rest in Peace Vince Spivey

R.I.P. Vince Spivey

Vincent Darryl Spivey, affectionately known as Vince or Spivey, was born on February 26, 1956, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Wallace Spivey Sr. and Mary Esther Lewis-Spivey. He was one of six children born into the family, which later expanded when his mother married Ernest Scott Sr., welcoming three more children. Together, they raised their six children in West Philadelphia, emphasizing the importance of unity and family bonds.

Growing up in West Philly, Vincent attended University City High School and became part of its inaugural graduating class in 1974. He pursued various interests, from his love for aquatic life to his knack for fixing things and his musical talents. Vincent's leadership and creativity shone through as he led a local band called "Enchanted Forest," performing at parks and venues across the city.

Vincent's life took a significant turn when he met his wife Lisa in 1981 at a downtown Philadelphia venue. Their shared love for music and dance kindled a lifelong partnership, marked by the birth of their four children and 40 years of enduring love. Vincent's dedication extended beyond his family; he served his community as a deacon at St. Matthews Baptist Church and later in the Audio/Visual Ministry at Alpha Baptist Church. Throughout his career, Vincent's commitment to union representation remained steadfast, reflecting his unwavering advocacy for fairness and solidarity among workers. Vincent's vibrant spirit and unwavering loyalty endeared him to all who knew him, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of his loved ones and friends from Philadelphia to Delaware and Maryland.

IAm worker's memorial brick

March 1st is the last day to honor a fallen member with a personalized brick at the IAM workers memnorial.

Each year, April 28 is recognized as Workers’ Memorial Day, a day for us to commemorate the thousands of workers killed, injured, or sickened on the job. Your local can memorialize a fallen member with a personalized brick placed at the IAM Workers Memorial at the William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center in Hollywood, MD.

The deadline to submit personalized bricks is Friday, March 1, 2024.

The brick can have two lines of lettering with up to 20 characters per line (including spaces on each line) without the logo for $100. There’s also the option to purchase a brick with three lines of lettering with up to 15 characters per line, along with the IAM logo for $125.

There’s also the option to purchase a larger brick: an 8×8 can be purchased for $200. This option comes with four lines of lettering with up to 20 characters per line without a logo, or with two lines of lettering with up to 15 characters per line, along with your own preferred logo or the IAM logo.

If your local has a member who died on the job or because of the job, a complimentary brick will be placed at no cost. Please fill out and submit the complimentary brick order form.

The IAM Workers’ Memorial was completed in 2001. It was dedicated to remembering those who lost their lives while on the job. The bricks surrounding the Memorial bear the names of fallen members along with bricks donated from lodges and proud members of the IAMAW.

On or around April 28 each year, a ceremony is conducted at the memorial to remember those who lost their lives and rededicate ourselves to prevent on-the-job injury and death to workers.

The deadline to submit personalized bricks is Friday, March 1, 2024.
