The board of the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen took time on Thursday to remember Tom Styffe, an alternate director for Area D.

“He cared about his community,” Obirek said.

In addition to his work with the regional district, Styffe was a member of the Real Estate Council of Britich Columbia and served as the chair of the Board of Governors of Okanagan College.

Earlier, he had served as a councillor in Logan Lake.
