Joseph R. Dunford
52, Waverley
It is with a deep sense of sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Joseph R. Dunford, 52, on August 22nd, 1999.
His early education was in Sydney, C.B., and Brampton, Ont., and he later graduated from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute. He earned his engineering degree from the University of Waterloo in 1972. Prior to forming his own company in 1980 he worked for Bell Canada and Telesat Canada. As the president and foulder of EnviroSeal Engineering Products Ltd., his guiding hand and spirit will be sorely missed.
His groundbreaking products revolutionized the Pumping Process Industry globally, and are Joe’s legacy to the world. Always exuberant about new technology, Joe’s engineering creativity and keen insight allowed him to explore problems in new ways, as he masterminded solutions that were as elegant in their simplicity as they were successful in their application.
Joe’s relentless pursuit of excellence resulted in several unique inventions and subsequent patents. His dedication to revolutionizing this industry resulted in his earning several local, national and international awards.
The culmination of Joe’s efforts was recognized world wide in 1995, when he was presented with the very prestigious Vaaler Award. Joe was the first Vaaler Award winner from outside the United States since the award was first presented in 1964. In addition, he received several nominations and became a finalist in 1996 for the Atlantic Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
Joe was a member of the Association of Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia, the Inventors Society of Nova Scotia, Alderney Squadron Atlantic District, and The Canadian Federation of Independent Business.
He coached minor hockey for several years and later became extensively involved with the sport of canoe and kayak. His passion for his children and the sport spawned the creation of a revolutionary new starting system – the “CanStart”– which he designed together with Greg Maloney. Their system premiered during the Canoe 97 World Championships in Dartmouth.
Joe’s inspiration and foresight over his years of association with the Cheema Aquatic Club has been recognized as a major contribution to the club’s ongoing success.
He is survived by his wife, Aniko (nee Horvath); his children, Ryan and Mandy; sister, Beverley Genge, Langley, B.C.; and brother, Bill, Sydney, N.S.
He was predeceased by his mother, Annie Rose (nee Cann), his sister, Marie, and father, William.
Joe was a devoted husband to Aniko, a loving father to Ryan and Mandy, a warm and caring friend to many, a lifelong athlete and sailor, and a brilliant engineer and inventor. He touched countless lives around the world during his all-too-brief stay among us, and he will be remembered with fondness, love and respect by all those he left behind.
A “Celebration of Joe’s Life” will take place at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, September 1, 1999, at the Inn on the Lake, Lake Thomas, Waverley, N.S.
In lieu of flowers, we ask your kind support of one of the following charitable organizations. The Canadian Diabetes Association - Research Fund or The Joe Dunford Memorial Bursary of the N.S. Amateur Sport Fund, c/o Sport Nova Scotia, PO Box 3010 South, Halifax, NS B3J 3G6.
“Whatever ocean you’re sailing now, Joe, may you always have fair winds and following seas.
