The Vogel family has announced that Wink Vogel passed away peacefully on March 14. He is survived by his wife Noelle, sons Randy and Tim, daughter Tracy, as well as their spouses and families.
Vogel, who most recently held the title of Honorary Chairman, has had a profound impact on Cloverdale Paint, its employees, customers and the paint industry.
Gary LeRoux, President and CEO of the Canadian Paint and Coatings Association (CPCA), says Vogel was an icon and one of very few leaders of a family-owned, privately held coatings company of its size in the world, (currently the tenth-largest in North America). The company was started by Vogel’s father on a farm in Surrey, BC.
A great supporter of the industry and the CPCA, Vogel received its highest honor, the Roy Kennedy award, was a board member of CPCA and Product Care, and was a leading voice for paint recycling programs in Canada. Details about a celebration of life will be delayed until an appropriate time as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.
