Town of Ocean City Mourns the Loss of Former Councilmember

(July 11, 2014) – It is with deep sadness that the Mayor and City Council, as well as the men and women of the Town of Ocean City, announce the passing of former councilmember Hank Westfall.  Westfall served one term on the Ocean City Council, from 1990 until 1994.  In addition to his time on the council, Westfall was a 13-year member of the Board of Zoning Appeals, which he served from 1996 to 2011.

Hank Westfall was an excellent Councilman and also one of the finest gentleman I have ever known,” said Mayor Rick Meehan. “He will be missed by all and our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Evelyn and the entire Westfall family.”

Along with his involvement in local government, Westfall was a member of the American Legion Post #166, he served as the AARP Ocean City Chapter Vice President and was the President of the Little Salisbury Civic Association. Before moving to Ocean City after retirement from the Department of Labor in D.C., Westfall attended George Washington University as a Mechanical Engineering student.  He also served in the US Army and the Army Reserves, eventually retiring as US Army Captain. 


Services for Westfall, who passed on July 10, will be held at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, Ocean City, MD at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, July, 14, 2014.  In lieu of flowers, the family prefers donations to either:  St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, American Legion, VFW, Hospice, or any charity you choose.
