TAINIO , Bruce Dale Bruce Dale Tainio, age 65, died at his home in Cheney, Washington on December 31st, 2009 after a fierce battle with cancer. Bruce was born May 16th, 1944 in Wallace Idaho to Henry (Hank) Tainio and Frances Ackerman Tainio, and was the younger of two boys. Growing up working in the strawberry fields on his family's farm in Otis Orchards, Bruce's love of nature and life began to bloom, building a springboard for his life's work as a scientist, working with nature for the betterment of the earth and its inhabitants. After graduating from East Valley High School in 1962, Bruce attended Eastern Washington State College (now Eastern Washington University), where he studied biology. During his last year of college he took a long sabbatical and traveled across Europe and parts of the Middle East, cataloguing and studying crop varieties and native plant species. Bitten by wanderlust and a passionate love for plants and science, he began a rewarding and successful career as a plant breeder, developing hundreds of new plant varieties. His career took him to many countries and remote corners of the world. In 1985, Bruce began his own seed company, Tainio Technology. Not content with standard growing practices, he soon developed a line of natural products based on enzymes and beneficial bacteria, to enhance the health of his crops. Bruce was well known for his unique farming philosophies, was a sought after lecturer and consultant in the agricultural world, and quoted in many books and publications. Today, farmers around the world use Tainio's products and sustainable agriculture methods. As a hobby, Bruce was an inventor and a student of energy and quantum physics, which lead him to invent several instruments, which minimize environmental stress from electromagnetic frequencies. These instruments are now being used in households, businesses, and on farms and factories around the world, and manufactured by Tainio Technology's sister company, Coherent Resources. Bruce is survived by his wife, Athena (Teena Kreymer ) Tainio, son Marc Tainio and daughter-in-law Amanda (Gibson) Tainio, two stepdaughters Jennifer (Clark) McLendon and Amy (Clark) Becker, and their husbands Patrick McLendon and Stephen Becker. Four grandchildren: Michael Trevino, Arianna Trevino, Marissa McLendon, and Samuel Becker. His mother Frances Tainio, and brother Gary Tainio and sister-in-law Sue (Swanson) Tainio. A memorial service and reception will be held Sunday, January 10th at 2:30 p.m. at Unity Church, 2900 South Bernard Street, Spokane, Washington.Please honor Bruce by making donations to either of the following charities, of which he and his wife have been supporters: Union Gospel Mission - 1224 East Trent Ave. Spokane, Washington, 99202 Hospice of Spokane - P.O. Box 2215 Spokane, Washington, 99210 Bruce was a loving husband, father and grandfather, and will be missed by his family, and many friends around the world. As an old friend recently said, "he cut a wide swath". Cheney Funeral Chapel, Cheney, WA

It is just now that I learned of Bruce's passing. I'm sorry to realise he's no longer with us in body...... My reason for trying to contact Bruce was strictly professional. Findhorn Press (Scotland) & Inner Traditions (USA) have agreed to publish me second book on my work with cancer. In it I quote Bruce's table of energetic frequencies regarding various illnesses and their energetic charge. I would wish to receive permission to use his work in this manner. If you, dear reader of this message are unable to reply to this request, do you know who I can contact regarding this matter? ..... Thank you and bless you, Tjitze de Jong .....

Happy New Year Bruce.

January 1, 2012
I was one of the few from "behind the iron curtain" who worked with Bruce. He visited 3 or 4 times Hungary, we met and planned businesses. Together with another guy I worked in his farm next to Cheney betwee May and September 1985. I remember most of the moments of that period. I liked Bruce very much, and I know he liked me as well. Even now I think of him and the places we went together time to time. This morning - by chance I just put his name in google and learned that he is not with us any more. I keep him and Cheney in my mind for ever. Laszlo Farady from Hungary, Europe

Bruce, you are a missed Friend!
Bruce inspired many through his truthful and kind words. He was the true beginning of my desire for knowledge and not just caring for the environment but the source of knowledge to actually repair and care for what God has given us. Bruce was such a kind, gentle, caring, considerate awesome individual that words can only try to describe. Bruce and Teena took us under their wing till we were able to fly on our own. Teena and the rest of the family, you also are very appreciated on what you have done to support Bruce's thoughts and desires to allow the opportunity to the rest of us.
Now it is up to us to continue on in Bruce's footsteps and it will truly take us all to fill such a big path.
It is with great honor to have built and continue to build such an awesome working relationship and friendship with all the AWESOME people of Bruce and Teena. The whole family has become close friends and will continue to hold that special place in my heart and day to day decisions and interactions.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to Bruce, Teena and the rest of the family for all you have done in the past, present and future. Let's go on and continue to make the world a better place as is God's intention and Bruce's wish and desire.

I had the honor and privilege of working with Bruce many years ago. We had a great time doing a conference with JJ Hurtak and Dr. Eric Perl (and helping out Mr. Segal). George Hopkins and I both learned alot from Bruce and I was deeply sadden when I found out that Bruce has left us. I still use the radionics machine he made for me. He contributed alot to this world and his works and spirit will continue to bless and help this world. We will only know the greatness of this man once we see him in heaven. God Bless the Tainio family. I am honored to be able to know them even for a short time.

Though it was a brief meeting with Bruce and his lovely family, the Tainios never left my thoughts.. a visionary and dreamer in his own right, the ripple he started will create a tsunami effect in the generations to come.. his contribution and passion to the environment will last till the end of mankind. The good Lord knows just when to take a good man home after a job well done. I salute his endeavor and his presence will be greatly missed.

I meet Bruce about nine years ago when he and Teena came to a horse ranch that I worked at and were inquiring about some horses that were for sale. I quickly found out how loving and caring person Bruce was. He allowed Teena to purchase the horses that she still has and that they were going to a great home and that they would be well loved and taken care of. Bruce was a very intelligent scientist that developed products that would help the earth. The world is better for the work that Bruce has done. Bruce will be missed by all.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Bruce’s family for their, lose of a loving man. With deepest and heartfelt sympathy for their, lose. Bruce will continue to send his love from the heavens above to his family and friends.

Bruce touched my life like no other human being has ever done. So intelligent he could explain the most complex theories of quantum physics to the average mind. So gracious and patient, he would take whatever time it took until you got it. No matter how busy he was. So knowledgeable on so many subjects, I think his brain had more data in it than And such a gentle spirit. I send my deepest sympathies to Teena and all others in Bruce’s immediate family. But his parting is a sadness we all deeply share.

Those of us who are left here on this earth can comfort one another by sharing memories we treasure of Bruce Tainio. Never have I met anyone who was more connected with every aspect of life he could explore and yet so concerned with helping everyone else appreciate this life and his knowledge about it. He did indeed “cut a wide swath” both in the fields and in the hearts of friends. I offer a sympathetic ear to anyone who needs to share a memory. My hugs are for his family who remain.

All of us at Alaska Pristine Technology in Anchorage send our greatest sympathy and condolences to Teena and the rest of the family. We who knew Bruce and his work had the greatest appreciation for what he represented and what he accomplished. His work and his sprit inspired us to seek new and better ways to work without having cross purposes with nature. Not everyone leaves a great legacy when they pass but Bruce did. His work will live on changing the world for generations to come.
Faithfully Yours

This ... to our Beloved Bruce

This life time is only one night long.
But most people sleep through it.

Bruce .. He was one of those among us
.. who stayed awake
.... and served the creator and creation.

He served the Flowers and the winds
He served the blossoms, and the seeds
He served the trees and the bees.

He will live globally and eternally among us ....
In our Flows .... as well as ... in our fields.

A Teacher …
A teacher can globally affect eternity.?No one can say where or when his influences may stop.
To learn and not be filled … is wisdom?To teach and never be weary … is Love
The trees in the orchard give.?They give so they may live.?For to withhold is to perish.
And peace is taught … not defended?That is why …?One devout teacher is worth more than thousands of warrior soldiers.
And our beloved BRUCE is .... and will be ... that genuine kind of a teacher and mentor … who diligently enlightened, germinated, nurtured, and nourished a divinitive course in paradigm .... toward the new era of Bio-Cultural Sustainability.
Even though he has ascended from the midst of us, …
Yet … and forevermore
?His Vital, Syntropical, Resonating Presence ... and his Delicious Personage and Resonage'; ... that Fertilated our fields and flows ...
... Will always remain sustainable and eternal.
He was a bliss
May bliss be upon him

I first spoke with Bruce in 1990. With his help we were able to make major changes in our almond crop production. I have been to many seminars over the years, and Bruce has been to our ranch in Manteca Ca. Every one on one conversation with Bruce was a ‘mind expanding’ experience to say the least. I greatly appreciate all the time and research he as done to further the sustainable agriculture model. He will be GREATLY missed.

The world is a better place because of the vision and passion Bruce held for being a good steward of our planet. He influenced my path toward light, life, and confidence in our inward self, so much. Let us take up the torch he carried and run with the tools he pioneered to bring us closer to a world of purity, health and love for even the smallest things.
May his spirit continue to influence us toward good!

I was truly blessed by knowing Bruce. He was an instrumental part of my success as a business owner. His teachings and products had a positive impact on my life and this planet. He was a brilliant man and a joy to be around. He has passed the baton to those of us who know his methods for sustainable production and so we must honor him by educating others. You may be out of sight, but you remain in our hearts.

I have felt challenged and inspired by Bruce having attended his seminars. His wisdom became an integral part of my life. He showed me that the world is an awesome resource that research has barely touched. I am sad to think that so much of what he could have taught me, I am not now with him to hear. Bruce, we still need your life-saving thoughts.

I feel so lucky and honored to have met Bruce. He was an amazing, wonderful man and words cannot express all the qualities he possessed. Bruce was brave and kind. Smart and patient. The world has suffered a great loss with him dying physically, but we know with every seed planted, every tree that grows, that his spirit is still in life. My heart goes out to all his family and friends and I wish them much love and healing in this difficult time.

Bruce was a a relitive I saw only a few times in my life. These times are full of fun and playful humor. Bruce was always bound for greatness from a young man. The true measure of a man is his ability to serve his fellow man. Bruse's life was large.
God bless you all in this time of sorrow. Mary Jane Ackerman Luniewski

Bruce was an uncommon man that had more common sense than anyone I know. A genius with a gift that connected him to the earth and the ability to convey that understanding in the simplest of terms. Bruce was a true friend that will be deeply missed.
