Interior design industry mourns the loss of Stephen Dupuis

Published by Julia Salerno, October 04, 2011.

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Stephen Dupuis, BILD (Building Industry and Land Development Association) president and CEO, on Friday, September 23. Stephen was a dear friend of the Association and a tireless advocate for the home building industry in Ontario. On the night before he died, the Durham Region Home Builders' Association honoured Dupuis with the first-ever David Horton Memorial Award, named in honour of the former director of the Ontario Home Buidlers' Association. Joe Vaccaro, chief operating officer of the Ontario Home Builders' Association recalls, "Stephen was a tremendous mentor, friend and cheerleader for the industry. His peers always looked at him for advice and direction and he represented his members and his industry with distinction." Our thoughts go to Stephen's wife, Linda and his two children, Kendall and Carson. Read the full obituary.
