APEGGA Volunteer Remembered
As 'Just A Super Individual'

An energetic and passionate APEGGA volunteer and supporter, Bradley Dean Mersereau, P.Eng., passed away unexpectedly over the summer. Mr. Mersereau, 44, of Calgary, died July 19 while enjoying a day at the lake.

"Bradley was just a super individual," said Dave Todd, P.Eng., APEGGA Compliance director. "He was one of those self-starters, and he was always willing to go and meet with people in the enforcement area of our regulatory role. He was able to talk to people, even in sensitive situations. He was extremely energetic and interested in the affairs of APEGGA."

Mr. Todd added: "I considered him a good friend as well as a good member. He was a true professional, and proud of his profession."

Mr. Mersereau joined the Enforcement Review Committee in 1998. From 2000 to 2002 he chaired the ERC, moving to past chair in 2002-2003. The ERC assists Mr. Todd's department in making sure individuals and companies comply with the reserved title and reserved practice provisions of the Engineering, Geological and Geophysical Professions Act.

"He was ready and willing to do his thing for APEGGA," said Mr. Todd. Mr. Mersereau had recently become a member-at-large for the APEGGA Calgary Branch executive, demonstrating that "he was starting to move into other areas of APEGGA volunteering, as well."

An avid sportsman and outdoorsman, Mr. Mersereau was also a past grand master of the Masons.

Mr. Mersereau ran his own environmental engineering consulting company, Dean Engineering Associates Ltd. In 1984 he graduated in civil engineering from the University of Waterloo. His career took him to Calgary, Saskatoon, Drummondville and then, in 1990, back to Calgary.

At his Calgary funeral service on July 25, Mr. Mersereau was remembered as a loving husband, father, son, brother and friend, and as a gentle and kind person. He leaves behind his wife of 21 years, Simone, and two children, Rhys and Seychelle.

He's also survived by his parents, George and Sylvia of Sault St. Marie; a sister, Tracey McClelland and her family of Sault St. Marie; two brothers, Blaine and Brent, and their families, of Calgary; his wife's family; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
