In Memoriam, John Rizieri Paron

The Canadian Design world has lost a dear colleague and friend, John Rizieri Paron.  John was an integral part of the early success at Designers Walk, formerly the Vice President, Marketing of W.H. Bilbrough & Co. and the Canadian Manager of Greeff Fabrics Inc.  Below, DW's Primavera Interior Furnishings and Design Icon Brian Gluckstein share some special thoughts about John:

"We have lost a friend and an icon of the Designers Walk community.  John arrived from Northern Italy in November 1956.  After several months living w/ family in Hamilton, John moved to Toronto .. while searching for a job, he arrived at the Sanderson Fabrics showroom where he was immediately hired & began his long career in the world of furnishing fabrics.  John was hired by R.C. Wallace & Co by Reg Wallace, a true gentleman, who would become his mentor".  Primavera Interior Furnishings

"He was the ultimate gentleman and an important part of the design community.  He will be missed".  Brian Gluckstein
