Burlington, Ont. – Bakers Journal is sad to report that longtime sales director in the baking industry Michel Forget has passed away on Feb. 23. Mr. Forget was most recently director of sales for Richardson Oilseeds,

Friend and colleague Lloyd Watt worked alongside Michel for many years as industrial sales manager for the western region at Richardson. Watt said in an email to Bakers Journal:


“Many in the Canadian baking industry would have known Michel Forget from his early days with Unilever’s fats & oils division, before that was acquired by Golden Gate and eventually acquired by Richardson International. Michel was so valuable and was so well regarded, he managed to stay with each new company after each was acquired.”

Mr. Forget, who enjoyed playing tennis and spending time with his family, friends and pets, is survived by his wife Lorraine Buck Forget, children and grandchildren.

Visitation will take place at Smith’s Funeral Home in Burlington on March 6 from 7-9 p.m. with words of tribute at 8 p.m., and March 7 from 7-9 p.m. with words of tribute at 8 p.m.
