UK - Tributes have been pouring in after the death of TMB’s Nuri Waheishi, who passed away unexpectedly after a short illness in December. An enduringly popular figure amongst the global entertainment technology community, Waheishi started out as dimmer technician at Avolites in the 1990s, progressing to production director before joining TMB. He spent the remainder of his career at the lighting specialist, first as an inside sales account executive and later transitioning to his most recent role in customer development.
In a Facebook post from 23 December, TMB said: “Our hearts are heavy and full of sadness . . . our dear, dear friend, and colleague for over 20 years, Nuri Waheishi, has passed away after a short illness. It was unexpected. The TMB family is shocked and we are still processing the terrible news. Our thoughts and prayers are with Nuri’s wife, children and family. Nuri’s huge beautiful smile and gentle kindness will be forever missed. We will share more information as we have it, meanwhile, we know Nuri would want everyone to raise a glass to Life this holiday season, as he was full of the best of life’s spirit.”
A fundraising campaign has been set up to raise funds towards Waheishi’s funeral costs - to contribute, visit this link: http://plasa.me/nuri. All contributions go directly to his family.
