We were deeply saddened to learn of the loss of our good friend Wes Funk, who passed away in his sleep Thursday night in Edmonton. Wes was the longtime host of our literary show Lit Happens and an accomplished author in his own right. He had an intense passion for promoting Saskatchewan authors and their books which shone through in his interviews and was also a champion for gay rights in the community. We will remember him for his warm, open and funny personality and we will miss him greatly. Wes Funk was 46.
