REZNICK, Maurice Edward July 1921 - July 2014 It is with much sadness and a sense of loss that we share the passing of Maurice (Moses) Reznick on July 10, 2014, just two weeks shy of his 93rd birthday. He was predeceased by his parents, Nathan and Lisa, his daughter Tamara, his brothers Samuel and Saul, as well as his brother-in-law Edmund (Schnitzer). Maurice is survived by his loving wife of 66 years, Monica, his sister Fay (Schnitzer), his three children Martin, Anthony and Erica, and his adored grandchildren Keith, Evan, Alanna and Myles, as well as two sister-in-laws, many nieces and nephews. Maurice was born in Berdichev, Russia (now Ukraine) in 1921. His parents and his brother fled Russia and traveled to Montreal when Maurice was 2 years old. His father started a leather goods manufacturing business where Maurice began work at age 12, although he continued his education on to university. Along with his brothers and brother-in-law, he later ran a successful leather goods manufacturing company, Renwick of Canada. He married Monica (Bainbridge) in 1948 and they continued to live in Montreal until 1993 when they moved to Vancouver. Maurice was an enthusiast with varied interests, particularly gymnastics, photography and travel. He will be remembered for his outgoing vivacious personality and remarkable charm. He lived a long, joyful life but struggled with the tragedy of mental illness in his family. At his request, there was no service but a private celebration of life was held in Vancouver. Condolences may be offered at Hollyburn Funeral Home 604-922-1221
