    Dear Bhader family,
    Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. As we knew him, Mr. Bhader was very dedicated to his job and the quality work that he performed at Husky for great many years. I am sure he was quite the same towards family and friends. May his soul rest in peace forever.

  4. I am deeply saddened by our loss. I worked with Shavax for 12 years and have learned so much from him. Many of my colleagues at Husky go home safely every night because of his work. In our industry we say safety is “our number one priority” – but for Shavax, the safety of our plant operators was his only priority.

    My sincere condolences to the Bhader family. I met Shavax in 1990 when the Upgrader was being constructed and we have shared the same anniversary year for 29 years! In the early years of the Upgrader, we spent many hours travelling and recruiting across Canada. Shavax was truly one of kind with an amazing heart! As of late, we didn’t see each other often but when we did it was just like old times, we would reminisce the early years and catch up on our lives. I will truly miss our visits. I am very honored to have known him in this lifetime.

  20. My heartfelt condolences to the Bhader family. I had the privilege of working with Shavax for many years, and have many lasting impressions of my friend and colleague. Primary among those is my deepest respect for his unwavering dedication to process safety at Husky, where he truly made a difference.

  23. I knew Shavax since early days at the Husky Upgrader – 1990. We always seemed to bump into each other over the years in Lloydminster at work or occasionally at Mr. Bills, his favourite restaurant. “Chevy” always had a story to share along the way and time to ask how I was doing.
