Walter Morris


Walter Morris, the owner and founder of Berenson hardware has passed away. He was a one of a kind father, grandfather, husband, brother and friend to many. Walter passed away on July 15, 2022, at the age of 90 in his hometown of Toronto. He was greatly respected in the industry and extremely generous to his Berenson family.
After graduating from high school at age 16 in 1948, Walter entered Metallurgic Engineering at University of Toronto where he completed his undergrad, Masters and finally his PhD in 1957. Despite the rigours of his engineering degrees, he continued to play football with the U of T Varsity Blues. 
With his training in metallurgical engineering, Walter spent many years working in the steel industry before he moved on to work with Molson Brewery, TIW Industries and finally running his own company Berenson Inc.
Walter was a big supporter of many organizations including the Schevchenko Musical Ensemble, the University of Toronto, the Toronto Symphony, Sick Kids Hospital, and his family in Ukraine and in Canada. 
Walter’s happy, upbeat and positive attitude, and larger-than-life personality will be missed by all.
A celebration of life in Walter’s honour was held on Sunday, July 24, at York Funeral Centre, in North York
