It is with deep sorrow that we let you know that Will Powers, MHS Press Design & Production Manager, passed away Tuesday afternoon. He was vacationing at a family cabin in Canada with his wife Cheryl when he had a heart attack. Memorial arrangements have not yet been made, but we will post information once we have it. If you would like to make a charitable donation in Will’s name, here are organizations recommended by Will’s family: Comunidades Latinas Unidas en Servicio, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the Twin Cities Jazz Society.
During over 10 years of service at the MHS Press, Will produced beautiful books; he is known as a leader in national design and typographic organizations. He was a well-loved and respected colleague, and we feel his loss profoundly. We at MHS Press have already received hundreds of notes of support which we will send onto Will’s family. If you would like to send your sentiments to Will’s family, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make sure they receive it.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press also ran a wonderful article about Will today.
