HARRIS built steel empire
Milton HARRIS, a London native, died after a battle with cancer. He was 77.
By Marissa NELSON, Free Press Reporter
From his father's London scrap metal business, he built an empire. Milton HARRIS, 77, died Saturday after a short battle with cancer.
The London native, who launched his business in 1954, was the founder, chairperson and chief executive officer of Harris Steel Group.
The Toronto-based steel maker -- the largest manufacturer of concrete reinforcing steel in North America -- has annual sales of more than $600 million
Ellis-Don Construction co-founder Don SMITH was the Harris company's first customer.
Yesterday, SMITH remembered HARRIS as a close friend.
He recalled a time the steel wasn't correct and he called HARRIS to complain.
"He said, 'Fix it and send me the bill. If you say it's wrong, it's wrong,' SMITH recalled. "Any time I needed help with a charity, I'd call him."
HARRIS was a local Liberal, a former member of the London board of education and a prominent member of the Canadian Jewish Congress.
SMITH said there were few people he'd rave about like HARRIS.
"He'd stick up for the underdog," he said. "I only have two photos in my office -- one of my family and one of me and Milt (HARRIS.)"
In 2003, HARRIS gave $200,000 to the London Young Men's Christian Association to make sure less fortunate children could have the camp experience he cherished.
He saw first-hand, he told The Free Press in 2003, how the experience turned around the lives of many Depression-era children in the Forest City.
HARRIS went to the Silver Beach Camp, a one-time camp on Lake Erie.
"He had some great memories from the 1930s," Shaun ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, chief executive of the London Young Men's Christian Association, said yesterday.
"He was very generous and always remembered he got his start in London."
All HARRIS -- who came from a humble background -- wanted from the Y for his donation was a list of the children who had been helped -- a list now numbering more than 200.
Elliott said he spoke of how, even back then when he faced anti-Semitism in many places, the Young Men's Christian Association was a welcoming, non-discriminatory place.
"He was a very direct man. He wouldn't suffer fools gladly."
The Young Men's Christian Association tried to hold an event to recognize HARRIS for his generosity but he wouldn't allow it.
A news release from the company said HARRIS was diagnosed with cancer recently. His nephew John HARRIS has been appointed chief executive officer of the firm.
"Milt was a modern-day renaissance man with a special genius for commerce. I believe his greatest talent in business was to empower and mentor so many of us," John HARRIS said in the release.
Geno FRANCOLINI, a Londoner and director of the company for 12 years, said his longtime friend was heavily involved in the local Liberal scene, drawn to it by his belief in Canada and desire for it to excel.
HARRIS was part of a group of local Liberals who helped Judd BUCHANAN capture the Conservative stronghold of London West. BUCHANAN was another director for the company that went public in 1967.
"I respected him very, very much. I loved him very, very much," FRANCOLINI said.
Both HARRIS and FRANCOLINI sat at one point as directors of Air Canada -- fired when Brian MULRONEY came to power.
HARRIS was educated at St. George's school and Central collegiate in London before going to the University of Toronto. He served on the University of Western Ontario's senate.
He was made an officer of the Order of Canada in 1986. He is survived by his wife Ethel and children Judith, Naomi and David.

Doreen DURZI
By Karim DURZI, Friday, May 27, 2005, Page A20
Novice, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother. Born October 18, 1914, in Nablus, Palestine. Died November 28, 2004, in Toronto, of a heart attack, aged 90.
If it weren't for the fact that Communism was a fashionable ideology among Palestinian intellectuals in the 1930s, my siblings and I would never have existed.
My mother was born Doreen FRANJIEH in Nablus, Palestine, to a Roman Catholic Palestinian family. As a child, she said her prayers diligently, and even volunteered to help the heavenly angels. One time she was chided by her mother for prattling too much with her sister during meals and was urged her to eat with more alacrity, because the angels were getting tired holding up the table for them. The next day, the credulous child came home from school and directly went to the dining room to lift the table in order to give the angels a break.
As a resident student in the Sisters of the Holy Rosary convent school on Mamilla Street in Jerusalem, barely into her teens, she was talked into joining the nuns' order; she had readily accepted, much to her parents' dismay. She was happy in the convent, learning languages and other skills high-school girls were expected to learn in those days (and apparently, cooking for husband and family wasn't one of them).
Institutional life then was less structured than now, and despite the formality of the teacher/student dynamics, a free spirit of informality prevailed. For example, one of Doreen's functions was to climb up a fig tree and pick ripe fruit whenever the nuns felt like having figs.
Her brother, Najib, a journalist and writer, wasn't happy with his sister's chosen career. As an atheist Communist, he was determined to get her out of the convent. He teamed up with Simon, the man who was to be my father (who was eager to marry his childhood sweetheart Doreen) and the two young men demanded an audience with the mother superior to request Doreen's release from her vows. When they were politely dismissed, they impolitely threatened to throw stones at the convent and break all the windows.
Doreen eventually left the order, married Simon, and begat Karim, Samir, Emile and Widad. But her marriage to Simon posed its own problems. Our late father's family is Orthodox. Neither the Catholics nor the Orthodox in Palestine would marry outside the church. Their dilemma was solved when Simon's first cousin, an Anglican clergyman, offered to marry them in his church. Whenever I'm asked nowadays about my religious background, I reply that I'm an Anglican son of a nun.
Doreen remained a committed Roman Catholic at heart, even after her marriage. When I reminded her that Vatican II granted a dispensation to eat meat on Fridays, she continued to cook fish (which I didn't like very much), saying it was good for me.
The family first took refuge in Egypt in 1948 but, as Palestinians, remained stateless. My mother emigrated to Canada with the rest of the family in 1963 in search of a permanent home. My mother was proud to be Canadian and she kept a deep attachment to her homeland, where several members of her family still reside.
Doreen, as the matriarch of the clan, the nerve centre of the communication network that linked the far-flung members of the extended family. Doreen carried a graphic and detailed picture of the family tree in her head, and nurtured the tree with great love and devotion. When a family event occurred, such as birth, marriage or death, the news travelled around the world in minutes and she had an uncanny ability to remember names and birthdays.
She also managed, after marriage, to learn how to cook a few dishes along the way. Everyone who knew her and experienced her hospitality will miss those dishes -- and her, too.
Karim is Doreen's son.
