History Biographical
Aron Aronson arrived in Ottawa with his son Max Aronson, daughter-in-law Chana Aronson, and grandchildren; Jack, Bernard, Isadore, and Fanny. They came from an area in Poland (now Belarus) and arrived in the late 1800's or early 1900's. Aron Aronson worked as a peddler, and for an unknown reason, returned to his home in Europe. Max and his family remained in Ottawa. Max was in the fish business and acted as shamash for the Adath Jeshurun Congregation on King Edward Street. One of his five children, Harry, was born in Ottawa on May 2, 1911. Harry married Esther Raport (b. 1910- d. 1984) of Ottawa. They had one son Lester Aronson, born in 1941. Harry attended Lisgar Collegiate and then went into the delivery business, delivering department store parcels on a motorcycle. Eventually he purchased a truck and named his business "Reliable Delivery". In the 1930's he owned a BA (British American) service station at the corner of King Edward Avenue and St. Patrick Street. In partnership with Louis Aron, he began to sell automobile parts in a business called "Double A Supply". Harry was also involved in city real estate, especially apartment buildings. Harry’s brothers, Bernard and Isadore, and sister Fanny, remained single. Bernard was in the Royal Canadian Air Force and was the commanding officer at Camp Borden during World War II. Jack married and had two daughters. Harry’s son Lester graduated from Carleton University in 1964 and the University of Ottawa Law School in 1957. He was called to the bar in 1969 and maintained a general practice until 2000. Lester married Myra Slack (daughter of Lou and Stella Slack) in 1971. Two of their children also became lawyers.
