Tom Terwall passed away peacefully in March 2020, at the age of 80, in his home with family by his side. He dedicated his life and diligently served the Pleasant Prairie community in various roles for 41 years. He began serving on the elected Board of Pleasant Prairie in 1977, first as a Pleasant Prairie Town Supervisor for ten years, then as a Town Chairman for two years, and then as the first Village President for six years. In 1995, Terwall joined the Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission, where he served for 23 years with dedication, including his time in the role of Chairman of the Commission. 

Terwall influenced many highly esteemed economic development projects while serving the Village, most notably for creating the first Village Tax Incremental Financing District and the development of the LakeView Corporate Park. The Village sincerely acknowledges Terwall for being a visionary and helping to shape the community of Pleasant Prairie into what it has become today.
