John J. Naughton, former associate designated legal counsel of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen and United Transportation Union, died Oct. 29, 2015.

Naughton fought for the rights of railroad and other transportation workers as an employee of the former firm of Henslee, Monek & Henslee. As a part of the firm, Naughton argued before the U.S. Supreme Court several times to secure the right of rail labor organizations to have DLC programs and inform the members of their rights under the various laws affecting rail labor.

Naughton is survived by daughter Nora Naughton; son Thomas (Tracey) Naughton; grandchildren Kevin, Margaret and John; sisters Mary Naughton and Dorothy Naughton and many others. He was preceded in death by his wife Vivian T. Moore and by his brother Tom Naughton.
