Another Death in the Portland Art Community

Posted by Alison Hallett on Fri, Dec 12, 2008 at 1:45 PM

I just received an email from the PR director at Portland Center Stage:

It is with deep sorrow that I relay that Josh Westhaver passed away earlier this week. Josh was an electrician with Portland Center Stage since we moved into the Gerding. He also was a spot operator with Guys and Dolls, Cabaret, and the end of West Side Story. He was a great spot operator, a genuinely great guy, and was taken much too early. Josh had a major asthma attack that led to cardiac arrest that he did not recover from.

There will be a memorial service for him at the Gerding Theater at the Armory on Monday night at 5 PM. Portland Center Stage will also accept donations in Josh’s honor that will be distributed to the charity of Josh’s family’s choice.

What a grim week. My sincere condolences to friends and family of both Josh Westhaver and Terry Toedtemeier.
