Craig William Black in his 58th year passed away on Sunday, September 8, 2019 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his family at Rouge Valley Centenary hospital. Devoted son of Don and Ruth Black. Loving father of Tamara and Tori.

Special thanks to Lynne, Stuart and Conor Gilchrist for all their support to Craig and his family throughout his illness. Craig would want us to thank Albert Kwon for all the amazing help that he has contributed to him for years, the family and the business. Craig was a dedicated, hardworking man. He was a partner with his father at Don K. Black Linecasting Service Ltd., where he spent 39 years using his mechanical expertise to procure and refurbish printing equipment for clients all over the world. Outside of work, Craig took great pride in his home, property and had a lifelong fondness for animals, most recently his dog, Paisley and cat, Hunter. In his limited spare time, Craig was an avid fisherman who also enjoyed golf and motorcycle road trips. He was a loyal fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
