It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my friend, Mark Pridham. Mark was an ASQ London Executive Member for many years in the role of Membership Chair and as Proctor at ASQ certification exams. I had the pleasure to work with Mark on many projects and presentations for ASQ. I remembering sharing a laugh when we were scrambling to put together the red bead experiment presentation on short notice, shortly after our guest speaker had unexpectedly cancelled; unusual circumstances didn't seem to faze Mark. He would just shrug and carry-on with the task, using his life experiences to show another side of the story. My condolences to Mark's family and friends. Rest in Peace, my friend.
A Memorial Service for Mark will be held on Sat. November 19, 2016 at Exeter Bible Fellowship, 187 Huron Street West, Exeter, Ontario. Visitation with the family at 1:00 pm, Service begins at 2:00 pm. Mr Bob Heywood officiating.
Mark's Obituary Notice
A friend of mind once told me that he loved the change of seasons; and that he didn't really appreciate the transition from one season to the next until he had lived in the southern USA for many years and came back to live in Canada. The state where he lived tended to be sunny and warm year-round, so the Canadian climate was quite a adjustment.
The change of season also marks the start of ASQ-London fall meeting schedule. On September 15, we are touring the new Canadian Centre for Product Validation (CCPV) in London, a fascinating testing and product validation centre.
ASQ London met on the evening of April 14, 2016 at the Labatt Brewery for a Hometown Tour.
