Rod McPike Obituary
Mayor Brown penned a lengthy note after Rod McPike’s demise. Take a look at the note that he wrote:
“He touched a lot of different not-for-profits and events throughout the community, I go back to when we formed ‘The Mayor’s Run’ back in 2007. Certainly, Propak was one of the first ones at the table. And Community Links and other organizations that Propak supported over the years [showed] community was always important to him and Airdrie was always important to him … Everybody (in the local non-profit sector) is quite devastated with the news. And he did because he liked the community. Most of his employees moved here after they got a job. They were living in Airdrie and he didn’t want to uproot them … Not only is Propak our largest employer, but their current employees and past employees, and we are talking about thousands, have been impacted by Rod, and his team at Propak. He has created so much opportunity for individuals to raise a family, to buy a house. I really believe he was ‘the’ Alberta entrepreneur,” stated Brown. “He started out really from nothing, and then growing into our community’s largest employer … I know that entrepreneurial spirit that Rod truly embraced was (transmitted) onto the people who worked for him.”
