Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Sadly, the propane community got smaller with the sudden passing of David John Stainrod on Monday, October 3, 2016, just short of his 70th birthday. Dave was a brother, a husband, a father and beloved grandpa. He was a devoted family man married to his best friend Janet for 37 years.

Dave was a respected and stalwart fuels inspector at the old Fuels Safety Branch in Ontario for many years, before being recruited in 1989 by one of Canada’s national propane marketers. In 1993, Dave established DJ Stainrod and Associates. He was an experienced trainer and established author of numerous articles and training materials that were eagerly read by the industry. An active participant on numerous industry committees, Dave contributed his broad industry acumen that benefited Canada’s propane industry.

He will be remembered as a fiercely fair and passionate human being with a steady demeanor that was appreciated by all who knew him. Whether it was a family matter or a complicated propane technical issue, Dave could be depended on to take care of it adeptly. His passion will be missed.
