Comment | More

Crown Polymers executive William "Bill" Dimmick, a respected and popular leader of the polymer industry, passed away unexpectedly at his home July 15 in Crystal Lake, IL. He was 47.

Mr. Dimmick, co-founder of Crown Polymers, was nationally and internationally known as a highly skilled executive and innovator. He introduced countless new application methods and polymer formulations, many of which have become standards within the industry.

"Bill's in-depth understanding of polymer technology, the marketplace and the practical needs of customers enabled him to produce results that few others have equaled," said Dr. Vinicio Tresin, a company spokesman.

He added: "Bill's approach was as ingenious as it was straightforward. In addition to his technical skill and business acumen, Bill was generous. He was bright, articulate and always willing to share his substantial body of knowledge with others.

“Those of us at Crown Polymers, our customers and everyone associated with our company will reap the benefits of Bill Dimmick's contribution for many years to come.”

Mr. Dimmick is survived by his wife, Deborah; daughters Brynna and Tori; parents, Patricia and Floyd Dimmick; sisters April and Lori; and brothers Floyd Jr. and John.

Memorial donations in Mr. Dimmick's name may be sent to the American Heart Association, 3816 Paysphere Circle, Chicago, IL 60674. On-line condolences may be sent to the family at info@crownpolymers.com.
