Mackenzie Health Foundation lost a dear friend with the passing of longtime generous donor Leo McArthur January 11, 2016 after a tenacious and courageous fight with a difficult illness.
As the co-owner of the family-owned Miller Paving and McAsphalt Industries, Leo was a giant in his industry and among the first rank of the Canadian entrepreneurs of his generation. The King resident rose to prominence as president, CEO and chairman of the board of the multi-faceted Miller Group, in a career characterized by hard work, integrity and a passionate commitment to his employees, whom he considered an integral part of his family. He strongly believed in sharing his success with the communities in which he carried on business. Among countless initiatives he supported, he was a longtime generous donor to York Central Hospital/ Mackenzie Health and a valued member of the Honorary Council.
