Bill Young, the former associate publisher of Canadian Plastics magazine, passed away on September 4 in Toronto, after a courageous five-year battle with cancer.

 

He was 50.

 

With a long and successful career in the world of business magazines, Bill joined the Canadian Plastics staff in 2003, and quickly became a popular and familiar face to our readers and advertisers, as well as a fixture at plastics industry functions.

 

Bill was forced to step down from the magazine in the winter of 2008 to focus on cancer treatment. 

 

Bill is survived by wife Rita and daughter Emily, and will be greatly missed by the staff of Canadian Plastics, as well as his many other friends and colleagues.

 

A private family service will take place at a date to be determined.
