It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of Terrance “TK” Westfield, our dear colleague and friend. TK died on Sunday, October 6th at Memorial Hospital.
TK was a man who brought joy to those around him, who always had time to support his friends and family, and whose sense of wonder and energy was contagious. When he flashed that amazing smile, it was impossible not to smile back.
During his time as The Edney’s Floor Five Events and Site Coordinator, he was both enthusiastic and effective. He especially enjoyed supporting local and regional artists and often volunteered time to support them in the evening and on the weekend. A passionate and skilled public speaker, he shared his talent at many local events.
He was a mentor to many – encouraging, cajoling, and gently pushing young folks to work harder, to strive for success, and to build bridges for others to follow. There was often someone visiting him in his office, seeking guidance or simply enjoying his companionship as they worked.
TK was a veteran, a community activist, an artist, and a perennial optimist. We will deeply miss our friend and colleague.
