CHC Helicopter founder Craig DOBBIN dead at 71
Newfoundland and Labrador industrialist remembered as 'great son' of the province
With files from reporters Gordon PITTS, Amanda LANG, and Canadian Press, Page B3
Craig DOBBIN, the helicopter entrepreneur who counted some of the world's most powerful among his Friends, has died at his home in Beachy Cove, Newfoundland. He was 71.
The founder and chairman of CHC Helicopter Corp. passed away early Saturday. The day before, his Vancouver-based flight services company had announced that he was taking a leave of absence from his position as executive chairman because of unspecified health reasons. His son, Mark DOBBIN, was appointed to temporarily take his place.
One of 11 children, Craig DOBBIN first became a professional diver, then turned to house-building and land development, He founded Sealand Helicopters in Newfoundland in the late 1970s. In 1987, he headed a group that bought Okanagan Helicopters and Toronto Helicopters, merging them with his own company to create CHC. It now flies in more than 30 countries and considers itself the world's largest provider of helicopter services to the global offshore oil and gas industry.
"I never planned to own a helicopter, let alone establish the world's biggest helicopter company," he told a Memorial University of Newfoundland convocation in 2000, where he was being given an honorary degree.
"The truth is, I was more interested in fishing, but I had a real problem getting to the best salmon rivers. The solution: I bought myself a really expensive toy -- a helicopter. When I realized what I had done and checked my costs, I had two choices: Sell it, or make some money from it."
The Newfoundland native moved CHC's head office to Vancouver from Saint_John's in 2004, but he remained a familiar name at home. Appointed to the Order of Canada in 1992, he was named the province's businessman of the millennium in 2000 and served as its Consul General of Ireland. Two years ago, he and his brother Derm started the Saint_John's Fog Devils, a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League franchise in the provincial capital.
A plan to sell CHC to two unnamed U.S. private equity groups collapsed earlier this year when they wouldn't meet his price. "I thought the company was worth more than they were prepared to pay," he said. Mr. DOBBIN held 72 per cent of CHC voting rights and 23 per cent of its equity. He had planned to retain a minority.
"Craig embodied the spirit and passion of a Newfoundlander and Labradorian like no one else," Premier Danny Williams said in a statement. Former premier Brian Tobin called Mr. DOBBIN a "great son of Newfoundland and Labrador."
He continued to fish, bringing on his forays to Labrador such pals as former U.S. president George Bush, Atlantic entrepreneurs Harry Steele (Newfoundland Capital Corp.) and Ron Joyce (Tim Hortons). He counted former prime minister Brian Mulroney among his Friends, along with most of Newfoundland's premiers, especially Frank Moores, who died in 2005.
Mr. DOBBIN's own health difficulties began 10 years ago, when he was found to have a rarely diagnosed lung disease. His wife Elaine recognized the symptoms, because it had afflicted several members of her family. He was able to get on a transplant list and received a lung from a young man, a shooting victim in Philadelphia.
Ending his speech to graduates in 2000, he said: "Let me leave with these pointers. One: Dare to dream. Two: Turn adversity into opportunity. Three: Don't forget your reality check. You can do it right here at home in Newfoundland. But most importantly: Have fun in life -- it's a quick trip."
He is survived by his wife, Elaine, and five children. A funeral mass was scheduled for today in Saint_John's.

Born in Toronto on June 1, 1924, Sinc was the second of the six children of St. Clair and Kathleen (née LANG) McEVENUE. Predeceased by brother George and sister Mary, he is survived by sister Kathleen and brothers Sean and Kevin. After early schooling at Grey Gables in Welland, Ontario with brother George, Sinc graduated from St. Michael's College, University of Toronto, before enlisting in the Royal Canadian Navy and marrying Marjorie in 1944. He then served as first lieutenant and then captain of a minesweeper during World War 2 out of Halifax. After taking up chartered accountancy at the end of the war, Sinc embarked on a long and successful management career, working in senior executive positions in companies in Montreal, Kitchener and Toronto, before retiring in the early 1980s. It was then he took up a second vocation as an ordained deacon in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Toronto, based out of St. Clement's Parish in Etobicoke where he devoted countless hours in service to the church, visiting the sick, working with prayer groups and writing two books on Catholic spirituality. His was a full life, well lived and his engaging presence will be deeply missed by his family, his parish and his community which he so dearly loved.
