Obituary

Developer Terry Stiles, 70

Fort Lauderdale filled the Performing Arts Center during a memorial for the builder of its skyline, Terry Stiles. Stiles created more than 43 million square feet of office, commercial, apartment and business park projects in Florida and the southeast U.S. His accomplishments were recalled, including how he quietly instituted a $15-per-hour minimum wage for employees. Stiles President Doug Eagon recalled Stiles saying to him at a company picnic one year, “How’s it feel to be responsible for all these families?”

Stiles told FLORIDA TREND in 2016: “This is one of the few occupations that when you’re done, at the end of the day you can look back, I had something to do with that.”

Stiles died Sept. 11 at age 70 of complications from esophageal cancer.
