In Memoriam
Remembering those who inspired us, guided us, and touched our lives has long been an honoured tradition at Equity. Among the many ways the pandemic has impacted our Association over the past couple of years, has been our struggle to recognize and celebrate the lives of members we have lost – profoundly more imperative at a time when we have lost so many.

Here, we present the names of Equity members who have passed away since January 2019. We fondly remember them as artists, friends, and family.
