TTD President Larry Willis Passes Away

Larry Willis

The MTD joins with the rest of the Labor Movement in mourning the loss
of AFL-CIO Transportation Trades Department President Larry Willis.

Brother Willis succumbed November 29 to injuries he received in a
bicycle accident a week earlier.

“Larry was truly dedicated to improving the lives of working people,”
recalled MTD Executive Secretary-Treasurer Daniel Duncan. “He was a
pugnacious fighter in defense of the Jones Act.”

Willis was elected to TTD’s highest position in 2017 following years
of service as the department’s secretary-treasurer, general counsel
and legislative representative.

Originally from outside of Chicago, he held a B.A. from the University
of Iowa and a J.D. from the John Marshall Law School.
