The Writers Guild of America West has named the late Thomas S. Cook as its 2014 Morgan Cox Award honoree in recognition of his guild service.

The award will be presented posthumously to Cook at the WGA’s West Coast ceremony on Feb. 1 in Los Angeles at the Jw Marriott L.A. Live. Cook died Jan. 5 after a battle with cancer.

“Tom was a beloved member of this guild, renowned both for the remarkable work he produced and for his unending commitment to give something of himself back,” said WGA West president Christopher Keyser. “His service touched on every corner of our mission and lasted over three wonderful decades.
