Vern Stroud joined the Department of Transport as a radio operator. He was posted to the Joint Arctic Weather Stations, initially to Resolute Bay, but in October 53 he was posted to Isachsen, NU  as a temporary replacement when Norm Weiss was there.

 

From 1959 he was at North Bay where he stayed for 2 1/2 years with Frank Ryan, Ed Hancock and Frank Gushue,  then to Toronto as a technician. I don't know when he moved to the Kitchener office as a Radio Inspector, but he was there for some years and retired there.

 

In his retirement he was active in amateur radio with the call sign  VE3RVS and was a Chief Examiner for people taking the amateur radio licence examination.

The obit is definitely the Vern Stroud that was at our Kitchener District Office. I didn’t know him well though.

 

Carl Olsen, cc’d here, may be able to add more about Vern or suggest someone still around who can.

When I joined the Department in 1973 at the Kitchener District office, Vern was a radio inspector. About three years later, he was promoted to district enforcement supervisor (inspections, investigations and enforcement). He retired from the Kitchener office.
