APOTEX: Barry Sherman honores post mortem


A family member or friend will be invited to accept Barry Sherman’s Order of Canada on his behalf at a future investiture ceremony, the Governor General’s office says.

Sherman was among the latest appointees announced Friday for his entrepreneurship in the pharmaceutical industry, and massive philanthropic contributions.

Sherman and his wife, Honey, were found dead in their North York home on Dec. 15. An autopsy found the pair died of “ligature neck compression” and Toronto police homicide investigators are treating the deaths as suspicious.

The billionaire couple’s only son, Jonathon, told the thousands of mourners at his parents’ funeral on Dec. 21 that the 75-year-old Apotex founder privately revealed to family members two weeks earlier that he had been appointed to the Order of Canada.

I don’t know what will happen now with that award, if anything, but to our family, you were always the greatest Canadian,” said Jonathon, who shared the stage with his three sisters but was the only one to speak.

You were always so humble, but I know how proud you were to get that news, and how excited you were to finally be recognized for what you are.”

Nominations letters for the award are kept confidential to respect the appointee’s privacy, Josephine Laframboise, a spokesperson for the Governor General’s office, wrote in an email.
