Marc Messod Benhaim passed away peacefully on July 4th at home in Richmond Hill. Beloved husband to Lucie. Proud and loving father to Michelle, Philippe and Julien. Loving father-in-law to Chris, Paulina and Meagan. Loving grandfather to Madeleine and Liam. Adored son of the late Messody (Meme) and late Solomon Benhaim. Dear brother to Liliane, Sonia and Hilda. Esteemed brother-in-law to Jose Benayon. Treasured by cousin Moses and wife Viviane Shriqui and family. Loving uncle to Sylvia, Carol, Sandy, Steve and family. Cherished by his entire Germain family from Quebec. Dear friend to many.
Born in Tangiers, Morocco, he later immigrated to Canada in 1965, and became a proud Canadian. Two days later, he went right to work and began building a successful life in Canada. Equipped with the talent for speaking six languages, his ambition, drive, charisma, heart and strength of a lion, risk-taking spirit, he became a businessman. He founded multiple companies. His heart and soul was Inter-Canada Fisheries; the seafood importation and distribution company that he started 40 years ago. He worked passionately until the end. He welcomed his three children in his business (Inter-Canada Fisheries), and was a great teacher. He was a devoted and dedicated family man; always wanting his family by his side. He will always be with us.
Special thanks to Dr. Hovsep Baghdadlian for all of his care and attention over the years.
