Chuck Westfall, who was the face and voice of Canon to many of us, has died.
If you’ve been close at all to Canon’s DSLRs over the years, you’ve either crossed paths with Mr. Westfall or you’ve seen content that he’s contributed to – in one way or another. He gave so much to Canon’s customers and photo industry as a whole.
I’ve been doing Photography Bay for nearly 12 years and I’ve never met a kinder or more professional representative for any company. In the earlier days, I used to wait for him to chime in regularly with Tech Tips on The Digital Journalist. He was like our American line to the mothership in Japan. He certainly influenced the world around him and will be missed by many.
If you were familiar with him, please take a minute to read these other stories about his life and passing at Imaging Resource and PetaPixel. If you have personal stories or thoughts on Mr. Westfall, please share them with the rest of us in the comments.
The world is a lesser place without Chuck Westfall in the world. Rest in peace, Mr. Westfall.
