    I knew Pierre through his work with CSA Group. Not only was he an electrical expert, but he was always first and foremost a gentleman. My condolences to his family and friends. Pierre will be deeply missed.

    I had the pleasure of working the last 7 years with Pierre in his may positions and involvements at Electro-Federation Canada (EFC). During that time I have learnt so much from Pierre. While he will be remembered for his many professional achievements and contribution to the Electrical Industry, to many who have worked beside him, he will also be remembered for his passion, intelligence, and presence in our meetings. Pierre’s blend of respect, humor and intelligence made him a force of influence and a trusted advisor we relied on. He is missed and will be remembered as a respected colleague and friend.
    My deepest sympathy to his family.
