BRONFMAN o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2005-04-05 published
Edward BRONFMAN remembered as kind, shy
Canadian Press
Toronto -- Edward BRONFMAN, who with his brother, Peter, developed a business empire that branched into much of the Canadian economy, has died at 77. An official with Brascan Corp., the successor conglomerate to the enterprise created by the so-called Toronto BRONFMANs, confirmed that he died yesterday.
Edward and Peter BRONFMAN were excluded from the Seagram liquor fortune by their uncle, Samuel, who ensured his sons, Charles and Edgar, would control the Montreal-based distillery giant.
With Toronto as their base, Peter and Edward BRONFMAN built their own business empire anchored by holding companies Edper and Hees.
The so-called Edper Bronfman group was an intricate web of companies with assets worth an estimated $100 billion at its peak -- the largest conglomerate in Canada.
Its holdings ranged from London Life, Royal Trust and real estate broker Royal LePage to developer Bramalea, forest giant MacMillan Bloedel, brewer Labatt and the Montreal Canadiens hockey club.
He was also well known for his charity work.
Bernie FARBER, head of the Canadian Jewish Congress, called BRONFMAN one of the Jewish community's most treasured philanthropists.
"He was down to earth, kind, gentle... Although he was clearly a man of great means, he was just one of the people. It's the best way I can put it. He was just a really fine, fine human being and it's a great loss."
Edward BRONFMAN was less involved in running the businesses than Peter. He was deputy board chairperson, but sold about a quarter of his Edper shares in 1989, mainly to the firm's top managers.
A graduate in business administration from Babson College in Massachusetts, Edward BRONFMAN enjoyed running and skiing. He had three sons.
He shunned the limelight, but was active on a wide range of boards and charities. He was a director of the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews and Canadian Council for Native Business and led fundraising efforts ranging from a sports centre in Israel to Toronto's Edward Bronfman Family Foundation Research Clinic in Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis.
The holdings of the Edper group -- its name combining Edward and Peter -- suffered a sharp decline during the recession of the early 1990s.
Labatt and MacMillan Bloedel were sold to raise nearly $2 billion to shore up the eroding empire.
There are no longer any BRONFMANs directly involved in Brascan.

Edper's Edward BRONFMAN dies at 77
Shy millionaire was one of the country's top businessmen
By Jacquie McNISH and Paul WALDIE, Tuesday, April 5, 2005, Page B3
Edward Maurice BRONFMAN, the bashful millionaire who put the Ed in the powerful Edper corporate empire, died yesterday after a long battle with colon cancer.
Mr. BRONFMAN, 77, was a slight and painfully shy businessman who avoided the media and deferred most corporate decisions to his advisers and younger brother Peter, who died in 1996.
Their company, Edper Investments Ltd., a contraction of their first names, reigned in the 1980s as Canada's most powerful business conglomerate, with control of some of the country's largest real estate, natural resource and financial services companies. By the late 1980s, Edper's 40 publicly traded companies accounted for more than 10 per cent of the Toronto Stock Exchange's value. Its holdings once included Noranda Inc., Trizec Corp. and MacMillan Bloedel Ltd.
After Mr. BRONFMAN withdrew his investment in Edper in the early 1990s, he devoted most of his attention to such philanthropic ventures as the United Jewish Appeal, Hebrew University and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
In 2001, he set up a $1.5-million endowment for research into mood disorders.
He named the grant after his sister, Mona, who committed suicide in 1950 at age 26 after suffering from post-partum depression. "I felt it was time to talk about this and bring it out into the open and help people face their own inner devils," he said at the time.
"My father was much more comfortable doing his philanthropy than he was moving in the business world," said his eldest son, Paul BRONFMAN, a Toronto film and television producer who has Multiple Sclerosis. "He pretty well let his managers make most of the business decisions."
Paul BRONFMAN said his father had been battling cancer for four years and became seriously ill a few months ago. He said he is convinced his father stayed alive for his grand_son Andrew BRONFMAN's bar mitzvah last weekend.
"It was bittersweet," Paul BRONFMAN said. "He was too sick to attend, but I am convinced that he hung on long enough so that we could have the festivities for my son."
Edward and Peter were sons of Allan BRONFMAN and nephews of Seagram Co. founder Samuel BRONFMAN. The brothers were known as the "poor cousins" because they were shut out of the distillery firm after their father died.
Initially, Edward and Peter earned most of their money from dividends on their Seagram stock, which they reinvested haphazardly in such ventures as bowling alleys in Quebec. Their luck changed in 1968 when they hired Jack COCKWELL, a 27-year-old Montreal-based accountant who was born and raised in South Africa.
A demanding investor, Mr. COCKWELL persuaded the BRONFMAN brothers to divest their $25-million stake in Seagram stock and reinvest it in undervalued Canadian firms. That original capital grew over the next 30 years until at one point the valuation of the companies controlled by Edper was thought to have exceeded $100-billion.
"Edward had much more interest in some segments of the business than people realized," said Mr. COCKWELL, now group chairman of Brascan Corp.
One of Mr. BRONFMAN's great loves was hockey.
He and his brother owned the Montreal Canadiens from 1971 to 1978, when the team won the Stanley Cup four times.
Paul BRONFMAN said his father sold his interest in Edper in the early 1990s because he had grown uncomfortable with the company's controversial reputation as an aggressive corporate player.
His funeral will be held in Montreal tomorrow, followed by a memorial service in Toronto.

Born November 1, 1927, in Montreal. He was the son of Allan BRONFMAN and nephew of Samuel BRONFMAN, founder of Seagram Co.

At its peak, Edper controlled $100-billion worth of companies including some of Canada's largest corporations. From 1971 to 1978, the brothers owned the Montreal Canadiens hockey team.
Edward sold his interest in Edper in the early 1990s and devoted his time to a number of philanthropic causes (his brother died in 1996). In 2001, he created a $1.5-million endowment for research into depression and named it after his sister Mona who suffered from severe post-partum depression and committed suicide in 1950.

83, Halifax, died peacefully at Saint Vincent's Guest House on Monday, September 12, 2005. He had suffered from Parkinson's Disease. At the time of his death, he was Professor Emeritus in the Faculty of Business Administration at Dalhousie University.

They had four daughters; they were divorced in 1975. He married Margaret BLAIR in 1999. She survives him living in Halifax. After three years of service in the Canadian Army, he earned Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees from the University of Toronto with coursework at Columbia University, New York.

I can't believe it's been a year
Since you last whispered in my ear
You're now at peace and without pain
You struggled and tried, but it was in vain
I miss you more than words can say
Please, Dear Heart, watch over me
Until we meet again one day.

BROOKE, Edward -- Dispatch:
By Jeff BROOKE, Saturday, January 8, 2005 - Page M6
Edward BROOKE, a gay man who lived most of his adult life in Toronto, was not well known, even within the city's homosexual community. But his quiet life was telling all the same.
He epitomized many gay men of his generation, born in the first half of the past century.
Mr. BROOKE, who died of a heart attack in early November at the age of 63, was married briefly in the late 1960s and acted as a father to his wife's two children from a previous marriage.
When he divorced and came out of the closet in the 1970s, his new sexual identity was not accepted by his conservative family in London, Ontario, launching a gradual erosion of ties to his relatives and prompting him to move to the more-tolerant Toronto.
In the city, he had a long relationship with Willem STEGENGA, an outgoing furniture dealer.
During their time together, Mr. BROOKE experienced the peaks of his life. He and Mr. STEGENGA made money in Toronto's real-estate market and used some of their profits on glamorous trips, an Alfa Romeo sports car and home furnishings. They once took the Queen Elizabeth 2 cruise ship to Europe and flew home on the Concorde.
But the A.I.D.S. crisis of the late 20th century interrupted the good times when Mr. STEGENGA died of the disease in 1994.
Friends say Mr. BROOKE never recovered, and his grief was complicated by poor health and dwindling financial resources in his final years. He died in a small studio apartment in central Toronto, estranged from much of his family.
A bookkeeper most of his life, he had less than $500 to his name when he died. But he left behind an antique chest of drawers containing the souvenirs of his life, including Concorde matchbooks from the day he flew high enough to see the curvature of the Earth.
By Jeff BROOKE, Edward BROOKE's nephew
