Remembering Billy Wauhop (1943-2020)
It is with deep regret that NCMA announces the passing of Billy Wauhop, who died peacefully at his home in Clayton, North Carolina this past Sunday, January 5, 2020. Billy, who was very active in promoting the use and advancing the technology of concrete masonry with more than 40 years of involvement in the concrete masonry and hardscape industry, was a proud member of NCMA. Not only did he chair, but he was an active member on numerous NCMA committees — Freeze-Thaw Durability, Production Technology and Operations, Recycled Materials, Codes and Standards, Masonry Technical, SRW Technical, and more. He also helped organize many memorable Midyear Meeting golf outings over the years and may be best remembered for his leadership of NCMA’s Political Action Committee where he and his wife, Adella, together created engaging and memorable fundraising PAC receptions. He most recently chaired the task group that organized NCMA’s 100-Year Anniversary Celebration in 2018, the same Midyear Meeting at which he was inducted into the NCMA Hall of Fame and presented with NCMA’s highest recognition, the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Billy is survived by his wife Adella; children Brian Wauhop (wife Amy), Margie Riedel (husband Fred), and John Wauhop; grandchildren Matthew Riedel, Max Wauhop, and Thomas Riedel; and two brothers, Earnest Mitchell Wauhop and David Wauhop.
