Maurice Lionel Berelowitz, 72, died Tuesday, January 4, 2022, at his home, with family at his side. He was a native of Johannesburg, South Africa, born September 9, 1949, to the late Alexander Hyman and Caroline Percik Berelowitz.
Maurice was a true entrepreneur, starting MP Springworks at the age of 24 in Johannesburg. He moved with his family to Canada in 1981, where he was President of Springco Industries until 2001 in Toronto, Canada and Louisville, Kentucky; COO of HS Spring in Toronto and Louisville (2002 – 2004), founder of Flexsigns (2001-2010), MicroliftUSA (2007 – 2022), Constant Force Displays (2015 – 2022) and cofounder of ConstantForceUSA (2009 -2022). Board member of the Louisville Nature Center (2007-2011) and member of The Temple.
Maurice was a mentor, advisor, facilitator, and advocate for so many over his lifetime, providing guidance and sharing his wisdom in a few words with profound impact. His final message to colleagues, friends, and family:
“In the end, think of me when you have a fabulous meal, see something beautiful in nature, or are fishing or kayaking in the ocean. Most importantly, be good to someone who needs help, as these were the things that were important to me as a person throughout my life.”
He is survived by his loving wife, Margaret Handl Berelowitz; his daughters, Michelle Berelowitz of Oakville, Ontario, Canada and Andrea Berdusco of Sydney, Australia; his sister, Paule Sachs, nephew Carl Sachs, niece Natalie Fernandes all of Melbourne, Australia; and three beautiful grandchildren.
