SURREY, B.C.--The North American paint and coatings community would not be the same without the work and dedication of the late Al Mordy.

Mr. Mordy, the president of Cloverdale Paint Inc., based in Surrey, British Colombia, died June 4 after a short illness and ensuing complications. He was 68.

Al Mordy, the president of Cloverdale Paint, died June 4.

He was a well-respected, active member of paint and coatings associations in Canada and the U.S., according to Barry Law, the president of Master Painters Institute.

Mr. Mordy joined Cloverdale Paint in 1976. At the time of his death he was training a management team to replace him as he phased out of day-to-day operations of the business.

'Exceptional Man'

“[He] was an exceptional man who had a way of touching everyone he came in contact with,” Larry Lozinski, the president and COO of Cloverdale Paint, said in a statement.

A “Celebration of Al’s Life” memorial was held June 19. The Mordy family has asked that donations be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada in lieu of flowers.

Messages, cards or emails for the family can be sent to Carmelle Dwyer at cdwyer@cloverdalepaint.com.
