In Memoriam

Tony Walsh (1930-2022)

Tony Walsh was born August 26, 1930 to Peter Walsh and Elizabeth Ruhl. At the age of 17, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served in the Korean Conflict. Tony lived the Marine motto Semper Fi, always faithful, until the end. While in the Marine Corps Tony finished his schooling and received his GED while serving in Guam, a fact that he loved to share. He would later receive his diploma from St Xavier '48. With just a tool belt and determination Tony began a long and illustrious career in the electrical contracting industry. He became President and CEO of United Electric Co (1970) and under his guidance it would become an industry leader. In addition to his duties with United Electric, he served as Governor and President of the Louisville Chapter of NECA. Nationally, he served as the NECA Vice President District II and was inducted into the Academy of Electrical Contracting in recognition of his exceptional and outstanding service to the electrical contracting industry. Tony was proud to be a “card carrying” member of the IBEW 369.

Tony is preceded in death by his parents, brother Jim Walsh, sisters, Mary Jane Bickett (Walter), Betty Patterson, Cathy Dunn, brothers-in-law Don Wilder, Charles Fischer (Dee), Bob Fischer (Dottie), Henri Mangeot, Bill Cuni and sister-in-law Elsie Fischer. Tony is survived by his wife of 70 years, Doris Fischer Walsh; six children Steve (Terry), Dan (Debra), Eileen Walsh Stokes (Barry), Tom, John (Denise) and Peggy Karman (Rob); 17 grandchildren and 7 (soon to be 8) great-grandchildren, sister Martha Wilder, brothers-in-law George Fischer (Mary Lee), Pat Patterson, sisters-in-law Peggy Mangeot, Rosemary Cuni, Nancy Furlong (Jack) and many nieces and nephews.

NECA honors Tony Walsh, and offers condolences and well wishes to his family.
