It is with profound sadness that the family of Steven Mintz announces his peaceful passing on Thursday March 26, 2020. Beloved husband of Sandra Lann for 55 years. Devoted father and father-in-law of Jodi and Michael Ginsberg, Robert and Evelin Mintz, and Jennifer Mintz. Proud grandfather of Eryne, Joshua and Samantha Ginsberg and Maxwell Mintz. Dear brother of Phyllis and the late Russell Goldberg. Dearest son of the late Sara and the late Kopel Mintz. He will be sadly missed by his many nieces, nephews and friends. Grateful thanks to Drs. Gershon Frisch, Mark Lipman, and Lawrence Rudski for their exceptional care. A man who always did it “his way”, a successful businessman and noble philanthropist, he will be remembered fondly for his devotion to many charities in both Canada and Israel, including the Mira Foundation and the Jewish General Hospital, both causes dear to his heart. He was a proud recipient of the Queen’s Jubilee Medal and the only Canadian to receive the Ellis Island Award of Freedom. Due to COVID-19, there will be no funeral service or shiva at this time. Contributions in his memory may be made to the “Sandra and Steven Mintz Nephrology Centre” care of the Jewish General Hospital Foundation (514) 340-8251.
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Steven Mintz 2020..
