We are saddened by the passing of two friends of United Way: T.C. Gillespie and Richard Kirk.
T.C. (at left), the President of the Tarrant County Central Labor Council-AFL-CIO, was a member of the United Way Board of Directors for the past several years. He was also Secretary/Treasurer of CWA Local 6201. “T.C. never hesitated to share his opinion during board discussions, and he was always a strong and wonderful supporter of our United Way,” said United Way CEO Tim McKinney.
Richard Kirk (right) spoke at United Way events and was featured in one of our 2013 United Way campaign videos. He told how a United Way-supported program led by Senior Citizen Services of Tarrant County had helped him to manage his diabetes. Richard learned so much when attending the Better Choices, Better Health workshops that he became a volunteer workshop instructor himself.
We will miss them.
