Timothy Otway Upton remembered
MISSISSAUGA—Timothy Upton has passed away. He’s remembered below by friend and colleague Nick Howard of Howard Graphic Equipment.


Timothy Otway Upton,
Age 83.
Having graduated from England’s prestigious Sandhurst Royal Military Academy, Tim started work in the graphic arts industry in 1959. It was Vancouver, where he went to work for Sears Ltd.  At that time Sears was the second largest distributer of printing equipment in Canada.
Latterly was transferred to Edmonton as branch manager, then London, ON and finally to Toronto where Tim continued up the ranks becoming VP of sales for Sears Ltd..
In 1984 Heidelberg Canada was born and Tim became VP of sales for Heidelberg until his retirement in 1994.
Upon leaving Heidelberg Tim continued his marvelous career with Howard Graphic Equipment Ltd., officially retiring in 2003.

Printers from right across Canada knew Tim and his legacy lives on with all that felt his presence. A remarkable person with insatiable love of our industry and its people. Affectionately referred to as “the English Bulldog,” Tim treated everyone from shop personnel to the CEO exactly the same, with respect.
Tim leaves his wife, Helen, children Julie (Eric), Heather (Steve), and Anthony as well as grandchildren.
