Bernard Sherman Net Worth: Apotex Chairman And Wife Found Dead In Canada

Canadian police probe 'suspicious' deaths of billionaire pharmaceutical magnate and his wife who were found dead in basement of Toronto home

Autopsies are being conducted on the bodies of a billionaire pharmaceutical giant and his wife who were found dead in their York Mills home on Friday afternoon.

Apotex Inc. founder and Chairman Barry Sherman and his wife, Honey, were found dead in their Toronto home Friday, said the company and Ontario Health Minister Eric Hoskins.

The company grew to employ more than 11,000 people across the globe, while Sherman amassed a fortune estimated to be at least $3.2 billion (€2.7 billion).

Sherman "gave his life to the singular objective of our organization - innovating for patient affordability", Apotex said in the statement.

Multiple sources told Global News a realtor found the bodies at the home.

The Shermans recently listed their home for sale for almost 7 million Canadian dollars, about $5.4 million.

"I am beyond words right now. A very, very sad day", he wrote.

"Today I am gutted by the loss of Honey and Barry Sherman".

Linda Frum, a Canadian senator who recently awarded a medal to Honey Sherman for community service, was among those paying tribute to someone she described as one of the most beloved members of Canada's Jewish community. Our community is steeped in grief.

In a statement, Apotex confirmed the Shermans had been killed: "We've been informed of the tragic news that Barry and Honey Sherman have unexpectedly passed away".

The couple has been well-known for the philanthropy they carried out, giving tens of millions dollars to hospitals, Jewish organizations and universities, reported local television. "Our condolences to their family & friends, and to everyone touched by their vision & spirit".

Tory said that he was "shocked and saddened" to hear about the deaths of the Shermans but takes some solace in the fact that "their memories will live on for a long time".

Sherman was an active fundraiser for Prime Minister Trudeau's Liberal party but was criticized for holding a pay-for-access fundraiser in August 2015. He was reportedly found with his wife inside their home on Old Colony road. She also served on the boards of Mount Sinai's Women's Auxiliary, the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the International American Joint Distribution Committee.
