Troy Stadnyk - 24

Saskatoon, SK - Mining
Troy lost his life on October 30, 1996, when the roof collapsed at the mine where he worked. He drowned in hot brine because of the carelessness of supervisors who did not drain the tank before workers were allowed to work on it. Troy had completed his Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Degree. Troy worked for some time in Yellowknife before returning home to continue in the Aircraft Maintenance field, as well as farming with his brother, Kevin. Troy’s love of farming, family and friends will always be part of everyone’s heart.
