Mount Sinai Obituaries and Services » Saul Morantz
November 1, 2014
Saul Morantz, born May 12, 1927, deceased November 1, 2014, is honored in loving memory of his vibrant life, business accomplishments, and enduring commitment to his wife Ann, his family, and his community. Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Saul attended St. John’s High School, and the University of Manitoba before joining his father to run Globe General Agencies. Although Saul’s father founded Globe with an emphasis on insurance, accounting and financial services, Saul took the enterprise in new directions, developing Globe into one of the premier real estate acquisition and commercial management companies in Western Canada. As its leader for more than four decades, Saul Morantz built the success of Globe General Agencies and established a reputation for integrity, quality and excellence that has endured since his retirement. Saul was a caring member and generous supporter of every community in which he lived. His philanthropic interests reflected his keen intellect, deep understanding of the value of supporting visionary research, and his commitment to improving the quality of life for others. Above all else, Saul embraced life, reveling in modern politics and culture, enjoying the company of friends, literature and traveling the world with his wife Ann, to whom he was devoted for over twenty years. Saul was a member of ACBL and loved to play bridge. He also played poker weekly with the same, close-knit group of friends for many years. Though Saul fought illness for some time, he faced this challenge with courage, dignity, an incisive intellect, humor, and a joy for life. Saul is survived by his loving wife, Ann. Saul is also survived by four children, Richard, Marty, Steven and Susie, and seven grandchildren. Saul Morantz will be laid to rest on Tuesday, 2pm November 4, 2014 at Mount Sinai Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, California. In lieu of flowers, please direct donations to the Saul and Clarabel Simkin Centre in Winnipeg, Canada.
