FIENBERG o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-02-23 published
John FIENBERG
By Barry FIENBERG, Stanley FIENBERG, Louise FIENBERG, Louis FIENBERG and Allen FIENBERG, Wednesday, February 23, 2005 - Page A20
Father, community leader, entrepreneur. Born September 11, 1917, in Toronto. Died October 21, 2004, of natural causes, aged 87.
Our father's life epitomized all the good things that can happen with freedom, personal discipline and good luck.
Dad and a friend, while still attending Harbord Collegiate (around 1936) opened a hamburger stand at Jackson's Point, Ontario, and later operated 12 stands at various resort areas. He also began trading souvenirs, travelling as far away as Japan for novelties, and formed Oriental Importing Co. and Metropolitan Supply Co. Eventually his talent for business took him to JDF builders, which became Consolidated Building Corp. For a man who never knew which end of a hammer was up, he did pretty well.
In our own home, Dad lived for Friday night dinner -- no matter how busy we were Friday night, dinners were special; no matter how busy he was during the week he was always present at the head of the table for Shabbat dinner and expected you to be there, too. In the Jewish tradition, my father and mother always had extra places at the table.
Dad never indulged his children. However, he guaranteed all of us two things: a good name and a good education. His life was both public and private. He was a name in the Jewish community and a name in the Toronto community. Sometimes he was the brunt of community ire and anger, such as when he tried to purchase the Maple Leaf franchise in the late 1950s and threatened to change its name.
After several years wintering in California he decided to make it permanent. He began what appeared to be an entirely new life. The spa became his home away from home -- his salvation. If you visited him, you were suddenly part of his motley group. You had to "climb the mountain" at 6 a.m., you had to play in the water volleyball game, you had to lift weights and you had to run on the treadmill with him. And if you wanted to talk to him, you had to learn to do it in a steam room.
And for a man who was rarely home in Toronto, he suddenly developed a knack for the culinary: specialties of the house included bread-baking, pickle-making, cholent-making and other mischief. These treats were distributed, not just to his Friends, but to the staff of the spa, the bank, the local supermarket and the hungry locals on the street corner. In California, he seemed to take pleasure in the giving of his time in a simpler way. In Toronto he built hospitals and synagogues, in California he made... soup.
In 1993, this California life ended when he suffered a stroke. We will all remember visiting him in the Intensive care Unit and meeting the neurologist who said he might learn to feed himself. John FIENBERG showed that doctor to be wrong by dancing at his granddaughter's bat mitzvah a year later. We were not at all surprised.
Upon returning to Toronto his activity never really changed. Instead of climbing "the mountain," he walked in every season. He renewed old Friendships and deepened his relationships with his children, son- and daughters-in-law and grandchildren. While he found it hard to communicate, we all understood him and most importantly we knew that he understood us. There are not enough words to express his gratitude for the enduring devotion of his wife, our mother Rosslyn.
On Wednesday, the week before he died, he attended the 75th anniversary for Shaarei Shomayim congregation. When his turn came to receive an award he proudly came to the front, walking with difficulty and received a standing ovation from everyone in the hall. It was a touching moment and perhaps the best send-off he could have. He passed away a proud man. In his own words: "Happy, happy, happy."
Written by John FIENBERG's children, Barry, Stanley, Louise, Louis and Allen.
