HRAI is sad to report the passing, on September 18th 2016, of William (Bill) Whitten, founder of Rosetown Central Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Limited, in Brampton, Ontario.  Rosetown has served the needs of the commercial HVACR marketplace in the GTA for 50 years. 

Bill Whitten served for more than a dozen years, from 1994 to 2007, on the Contractors Division Board of Directors, representing the interests of the Ontario Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Contractors (ORAC).   He served for even longer on the ORAC Board and twice served as ORAC President, first in 1994-1996 and then again in 2004-2005. 

Bill will be greatly missed by his wife Jo-Ann, his four sons, three daughters-in-law, 10 grandchildren and countless friends in the HVACR industry.
