GARY DARLING - AN INDUSTRY GREAT PASSES

Surrey, British Columbia - September 17, 2016 - We were shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of Gary Darling who, for many years, was the face of automatic suppression systems in Western Canada.  He recently retired from Kidde Canada where he was their Western Regional Sales Manager.  Gary’s knowledge of the industry was amazing but considering he started in it over forty years ago, that’s not surprising.  What was surprising about Gary was his willingness to share his knowledge and his genuine passion for the industry.  He gave of his time generously and unstintingly.  I know his colleagues at Kidde and National Fire will miss him, as will I.  He was a huge advocate for smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in the home.  His presentation at the CFAA BC Technical Seminar was both witty and informative, and clearly demonstrated his commitment to keeping Canadians safe from fire!

Our heartfelt condolences to Gary’s family, friends and colleagues.
