MIL co-founder Terry Slater dies
MISSISSAUGA, ON—Terry Slater, one of the founders of former printing powerhouse Mathews Ingham & Lake and a noted industry personality, died on Sunday.

With his partners Dave Lake, Bob Ingham and the two Mathews’s brothers, Slater built Toronto-based MIL into one of the industry’s best-known and most award-winning commercial printers during its heyday in the 1970s and 1980s. The company was sold to Ronalds Printing (itself later purchased by Quebecor).

After MIL, Slater founded Mississauga-based printing companies Queenstone and Kingsweb. Those firms recently went out of business [see PrintCan.com, March 2010].

Here is the text of the official obituary just received by PrintCan, thanks to the Toronto Craftsmen Club:
