On December 16, 2016, family and friends gathered at Howard Graphic Equipment’s new facility to inaugurate and pay homage to a Printing Industry legend. Mrs. Helen Upton, daughters Julie and Heather, son Anthony, spouses and all the grandchildren were joined by industry leaders from past and present.
Tim Upton spent his working life in the graphic arts. In 1959, Tim, fresh from emigrating from Britain, landed in Canada, where he went to work for Sears Ltd. Sears represented a great many printing and bindery brands and had offices across Canada. In 1984, Tim continued his career with Heidelberg Canada in the role of Sr. Vice-President of Sales. Tim spent his last ten working years with Howard Graphic Equipment Ltd. Sadly, Tim passed in 2015.
