Garry Proudfoot, described by the BCPIA as an industry pioneer of the Vancouver printing world, passed away on January 4; he was 67.
Proudfoot started Web Press Graphics in the mid/late 1960s with Pierre Péladeau as business partner, an operation that continues today as part of Quad Graphics in Port Coquitlam, BC.
Proudfoot leaves behind his loving wife Joan, his mother Judy, sisters Colleen and Sharee (Gerry), brother Jeff (Charmaine), his nieces and nephews, and of course, his beloved pups. A celebration of his life will be held January 16th, 2013 at Capilano Golf and Country Club, 420 Southborough Drive, West Vancouver, at 3 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation or Canuck place would be gratefully accepted.
