Obituary for David Miles Kailburn

We very much regret mentioning that David Miles Kailburn recently passed away. Dave’s entire working life revolved around the commercial heat treating industry in Upstate, NY, USA working with companies such as Jasco Heat Treating and Rochester Steel Treating Works. We found this photo of Dave (on the right) which we took several years ago at RST shortly after they had purchased a new vacuum furnace. We will remember Dave for always being very calm and methodical, in short a person perfectly suited to his maintenance roles.

“David Miles Kailburn, 69 of East Rochester, NY passed away April 2, 2020, in Fort Collins, CO. Dave was predeceased by his father, Laverne Kailburn, and survived by his mother, Mary Lou, brother, Mark (Cindy), and sisters, Diane (Lee), Sharon, and Darcy (Mike). Dave is lovingly remembered by his wife of 53 years, Sandra Merrill Kailburn and his sons, Miles (Vallene) and Luke (Ashley), dear daughter Dana (Evan), and grandsons Avery and Henley. Dave enjoyed summer trips with his family to Watkins Glen and Lake Ontario, maple-sugaring at his cabin in Upstate New York, building his ’47 Indian Chief motorcycle, and completing endless projects around the house, big or small. He was a well-loved husband, father, grandfather, son and friend to all.”
