Obituary: Arthur Jobin

Long-time Canadian steel service center executive Arthur Jobin has died at the age of 87. He was the founder of Del Metals.

Jobin was born in Minneapolis, then attended St. Paul’s College in Winnipeg, Manitoba, playing varsity football and basketball. He relocated to Toronto and was studying dentistry when a chance meeting with Archie Russel led him into the steel distribution business. He worked at Russel Steel from 1953 through 1966, when he became the co-founder of Pitt Steel, a Markham, Ontario-based service center with branches across Canada.

In 1991, he founded Del Metals in Brampton, Ontario, giving him the opportunity to work with his children, Camille and Dianne. An industry leader, he was active in the Ontario chapter of the Canadian Service Center Institute and served as both a chapter and national president. He continued working in the business until his death.

He is survived by his wife Claire; three daughters, Stephanie, Kimberly and Dianne; three sons, James, Camille and Ormond; and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
