It is with heavy hearts that we note the passing of Don Stirling, founder of ICBA member Epscan Industries in Fort St. John.

Our team met Don several times over the years, and his son, Shane, serves on our Board of Directors. Don loved telling the story of Epscan’s founding and growth, and we celebrated the company’s 40th anniversary with him a few years back.

Don’s deep love for the FSJ community was the cornerstone of his success: “We’ve captured the spirit of Fort St. John in this 40th anniversary, with the friends that are here and the people we’ve had conversations with,” Stirling said in 2019.“The attitude of Fort St. John towards our business and towards the honesty and hard work that we’ve had here at Epscan, they recognize those things and support it. Time speaks for itself, and customers also speak for you.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with Shane and the Stirling family, Epscan workers, and all who knew and loved Don. A donation has been made by ICBA to Don’s favourite charity, the Gizeh Shriners of BC.
