The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) Board of Directors is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Graham Haywood, Senior Project Coordinator at the SLRD.

Graham joined the SLRD in 2015 and was remarkable as a colleague, and as a friend. He brought a tremendous depth of knowledge and experience to his work at the SLRD, and he showed great kindness and patience in sharing his expertise. He cultivated positive professional relationships with his colleagues at the SLRD, Board members and community members, building trust with an extensive range of stakeholders.

Most recently, from March to September 2020, Graham stepped up to fill the role of Interim Director of Legislative and Corporate Services, where he met the challenge with competence, kindness and grace.

“Graham’s work has had a significant community and organizational impact through successfully leading a diverse range of projects and he leaves a notable legacy of excellence,” said SLRD Board Chair, Jen Ford.

“Graham will be deeply missed by the entire team at the SLRD. This is an immeasurable loss. We extend our deepest condolences to Graham’s wife Heather, his parents, brother, sister-in-law, nephews, and Graham and Heather’s entire circle of family and friends.”
