The American Subcontractors Association is mourning the unexpected death of president Timmy McLaughlin, a civil construction project manager who died Thursday night (June 9) after a non-work-related fall.

“ASA members and staff around the country are grief-stricken to learn of the sudden passing of ASA President Timmy McLaughlin in Charleston, SC,” ASA president-elect Kerrick Whisenant wrote Friday in an email to members.

 Timmy McLaughlin
Timmy McLaughlin had served ASA for more than 20 years.

“We will miss Timmy's leadership, his kindness, his humor and his friendship. We will miss him dearly, and express our heartfelt condolences to his family.”

ASA said Mr. McLaughlin had suffered a fall off the job and died without regaining consciousness. The association provided no additional details and asked members to respect the family’s privacy.

Expertise and Service

Mr. McLaughlin was general manager of Austin Construction Company Inc. of Summerville, SC, and had worked in civil construction for 36 years. He had worked at Austin for 14 years, meeting with clients during planning and construction in his estimating and project management roles.

Mr. McLaughlin participated in ASA for more than 20 years and was elected to its board of directors in 2004. He previously served as vice president and president of ASA of the Carolinas, and was a member of that group’s board of directors.

Mr. McLaughlin previously represented ASAC on the Specialty Trade Association Council, a coalition seeking legislative reform in North Carolina and South Carolina. At the national level, he served on several ASA committees through the years, including Task Forces on Bidding Procedures and Payment.

Mr. McLaughlin expressed his vision for ASA this way: “ASA should continue to be an educational source for subcontractors in all phases of business, helping us keep up with the changing conditions in law and business. In addition, ASA should continue to be the leader in government advocacy for subcontractors.”

Community Leader

Mr. McLaughlin was also a community leader, formerly serving as a board member and committee chair for the Coastal Carolina Council of the Boy Scouts. He was a recipient of the Silver Beaver Award of the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Mr. McLaughlin is survived by his wife Kathy, a son and a daughter.

Mr. McLaughlin’s family has established a fund in his honor to benefit the Boy Scouts. Contributions may be sent to the Timmy McLaughlin Memorial Fund, Coastal Carolina Boy Scouts of America, 1025 Sam Rittenberg Blvd., Charleston, SC  29407.

“Without a doubt, Timmy will be sorely missed among our fellowship of subcontractors across the country,” said Whisenant. “He led ASA with a passion for our mission and a heart for our cause.  His example leaves a legacy that we can all strive to match.”
