MAHER, Edward Gerard " Gerry"
Retired Reinsurance Executive. Devoted husband, loving father and grandfather, beloved brother, uncle and friend, passed away suddenly November 26, 2005 at Lee Memorial Hospital, Fort Myers, Florida as a result of injuries sustained from a fall. Gerry was a model of faith, fortitude and love of family. He was a respected business executive, having graduated from Fordham in 1958, and worked for Guy Carpenter Reinsurance for over 35 years. In his later years, he was responsible for opening branches in many countries all over the world. Eighteen of his years with Guy Carpenter were spent in Toronto, Canada, where he raised his children. He forged many Friendships among his colleagues, here at home and internationally. Gerry was known to be a model of good stewardship in all aspects of his professional endeavours. When he retired, he offered his knowledge through volunteer efforts with Service Corps of Retired Executives, and parish finance administration for the parishes he attended. Gerry was a wondeful family man. He was born to John and Anne (DURCAN) MAHER, October 16, 1927, in the shadows of Mt. Nephin in Co. Mayo, Ireland. In his youth he participated in many athletic and scholastic adventures including boxing and drama. Gerry came to America in 1947, and worked for his Uncle Jack DURCAN while putting himself through college. He stayed very close to his 14 siblings in Ireland, England and New York. In 1952 he met the love of his life, Eileen STEEL, who survives him. They were married June 2, 1956. Together they raised seven children. Through perseverance and sacrifice, Gerry assured that each of his children could go to college. He often reminded his children of the value and importance of a liberal arts education. Gerry's greatest delight came from watching his grown children start their own families; he was very proud of his 19 grandchildren. He hoped to positively impact the next generation through family gatherings where many humorous stories were shared along with an appreciation of the family history and heritage. He was, above all else, a man of faith, devoted to daily reception of the Eucharist and recitation of the rosary. He was a member of St. Andrew Catholic Church in Cape Coral, Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Chatham, New Jersey, and St. Andrew's Catholic Church in Oakville, Ontario. He actively offered his time, talent and treasure to the church, especially through his volunteer work with the Corpus Christi Parish; as the mediator of the parish pastoral council at St. Andrew in Cape Coral; the St. Vincent de Paul Society, A.F.C.A.A.M. (African Caribbean American Ministry) and as a lector and Eucharistic Minister. He was a 4th Degree member of the Knights of Columbus. The best lessons of faith were taught by his lived example. In 2002, his son Brian died tragically, and this left a hole in Gerry's heart that never mended. We are comforted to know that father and son are now united in the presence of Christ, and that Gerry's heart no longer aches. We have lost our husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. Our consolation is our faith in the day we will see him again, in his eternal happiness. In his 78 years Gerry touched the minds, hearts and souls of many. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Seamus MAHER of Manchester, England, and his son Brian MAHER of Charlotte, North Carolina. He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Eileen; children Kevin (Lucy) MAHER of Chatham, New Jersey Phyllis (David J.) FLORIAN of Kalamazoo, Michigan; Diane (Philip) SARIKAS of Beaverton, Oregon; Clare (David) EMERY of Calgary, Canada; Carol (William) MURRAY of Chatham, New Jersey; Patrick (Kim) MAHER of Beaverton, Oregon; his daughter-in-law Barbara (Davren) MAHER; nineteen grandchildren; and thirteen of his siblings, Noreen GAVIN, Anthony MAHER, Kathleen MAHER, Muiradack MAHER, all of Ireland; Grace COCK, Julia GORZKIEWICZ of England; Anne DINNEGAN of Cape Coral; Patrick MAHER, John MAHER, Frank MAHER, Theresa COY

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.

Edward BRONFMAN
Born November 1, 1927, in Montreal. He was the son of Allan BRONFMAN and nephew of Samuel BRONFMAN, founder of Seagram Co.
Edward and his brother Peter created Edper Enterprises in the late 1960s with the help of long-time partner Jack COCKWELL. 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. Mr. BRONFMAN received the Order of Canada in 2000 for his charitable work. He leaves his wife, Marsha, and sons Paul, David and Brian.
