Joe Zaabadick Passes
It is with a heavy heart that we recognize the passing of Joe Zaabadick.
Joe Zaabadick had more than 44 years of experience in the Gas Industry, the first 35 years with the Southern California Gas Company. With had more than thirty-five years of experience as a professional trainer, training approximately three thousand Gas Company employees and conducting over fifteen hundred training seminars in the public sector. These were attended by more than thirty thousand people interested in training or information in the safe utilization of natural gas.
As a Certified Professional Trainer, he was asked to certify other instructors, had numerous awards and commendations attesting to his performance and had been described as “the benchmark by which other instructors were measured”. As a private consultant, he conducted seminars related to natural gas utilization, safety and customer service skills. His primary focus was the education of home inspectors in the proper installation, operation and inspection of residential and commercial gas fired appliances.
Joe was called on to do presentations and seminars for organizations throughout the country. Having been asked back again and again to give demonstrations is a clear indication to the value placed on his presentations.
