Bill Dick

Many of you wouldn't recognize this name. It's a shame. Because you see it's because of Bill Dick that many of you are reading this today. It's because of Bill Dick that stained glass became an industry and a popular vocation for some, a hobby for others.
It's because of Bill Dick that Mikey started Fantasy In Glass.
Bill Dick passed away the other day.
For many of us, our first exposure to him was through the stained glass store he opened known as Renaissance Glass back in the 1970's. Later it was through his opening of a stained glass wholesaler, which carries on today under a different owner.
Bill Dick really was a giant in our industry. He was respected. He understood his customers and cared about them. He helped make many of us a success in his time.
To Terry, Suzanne, Dominique and the rest of his family, we are very sorry for your loss.

Visitation will be Tuesday evening August the 11th from 7:00pm until 9:00pm at The Turner and Porter Funeral Home 4933 Dundas St. W ( just west of Islington) 416-231-2283.
The funeral service will be held on Wednesday August 12th at 11:00am at St. Georges on the Hill 4600 Dundas St. W, 416-239-2341.

Bill was a significant moral figure of much integrity in our business. Too bad the new regime can't hold a candle to him. He will be very missed.
