A Go Fund Me account has been set up for an Iron Workers Local 396 apprentice working for ACME Erectors who died unexpectedly on the job last week.
“We are very saddened to pass along the news that Local 396 Adam Wolf – a first year apprentice – has passed away,” Local 396 shared on its Facebook page. “Adam was thriving in the apprenticeship program, and he will be missed by all our brothers and sisters.
“Adam embodied unwavering commitment to his craft as a Local 396 iron worker and radiated profound love for his cherished family. If you are able to help out his wife and two young children during this time by donating to the GoFundMe, our union family would appreciate it.”
Josh Wilson, vice president of ACME, said he hired Wolf on as a probationary apprentice about a year ago. Wolf was accepted into the Iron Workers Local 396 program in June as an apprentice.
“Adam was hardworking and always had a smile on his face,” Wilson said. “He even worked a second job at Veritas in Chesterfield during his probationary period to pay for health insurance for him and his family.”
Brother Wolf leaves behind his beloved wife, Adriane, and their two children, Monroe (15 months) and Owen (5 months). Service arrangements are pending.
