Mike Nagata

Mike Nagata passed away on January 19, 2022 at the age of 94. Mike was born in Vancouver and was one of many brothers and sisters. Mike is survived by his sister and nieces and nephews.

After studying engineering at UofT, Mike joined CSA. During his long career he worked in various product groups and in several management roles. He had been the Lab Manager and was Director of the Lab when he retired. Mike retired in 1999 after 47 years of service.

Mike was involved in the design of the ’85 building, which was known to many of us as the “New Building”. After retirement he continued to use his skills doing audits for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) Lab Accreditation Program, even auditing CSA!

Mike kept in touch with many of his former colleagues and is remembered as a great guy to talk to and work with.

The family has posted an obituary in the Toronto Star. Visit Mike’s Obituary.

A private funeral is planned.

Larry Moore

Larry Moore passed away in Steinbach Manitoba, on January 24, 2022 at the age of 79. Larry worked as an Inspector in Inspections and Field Services in both the Toronto and Edmonton offices. Larry was hired in 1983 and retired in 2004. Many in Rexdale will know his daughter Pam and son-in-law Tim Grant.

You are welcome to post to his Tribute Wall through his obituary.

Betty White

Sadly CSA’s own Betty White passed away on January 17, 2021 at the age of 93. Betty retired around 1987. She had worked in Accounting and is remembered as the one who processed your expense accounts. Back in those days, expenses were paid out, on the spot, in cash.

Betty had been ill for some time and in her final years had moved from a retirement home into long-term care. No service will be held, but you can leave your condolences and memories of Betty through comments to this post.

Chung S. Yee

We are just hearing now about the passing of Chung S. (CS) Yee on February 18, 2021 at the age of 80. He is survived by his wife Anna. CS joined CSA in 1967 and was a team oriented, dedicated, dependable and respected certification engineer. He worked as a Senior Engineer in the Heating Appliance Group.

He was known as Yee by his many friends at CSA. After retirement Yee continued to keep in touch and get together with his colleagues and fellow retirees. He enjoyed attending retiree events.

A quiet family funeral was held due to the COVID situation and he was laid to rest in Vancouver where his son and family reside.
