In addition to his considerable academic influence, Monieson sat on numerous industry boards and or consulted regularly such as the Ontario Hog Marketing Board, Warner Lambert Canada, Canadian General Electric, and others. Mrs. Lois Monieson was a student of sociology and influenced the thoughts of her husband on various issues. Lois was a noted and well respected quilter. Mr Monieson died in 1990. Mrs Monieson passed in ate 2014. Their son Phillip survives them and has chosen local innovator and modern online marketer MaxSold to sell the bulk of contents from the estate. “Everything must go” said Real Estate Agent Alicia Gordon of Gordon’s Estate Services Ltd., Brokerage. “We were proud to be selected by Mr Monieson to look after the sale of his home and management of the estate”. MaxSold CEO Sushee Perumal commented “It’s an honour to be connected in any way with a family that made such a historical mark on the world of Marketing Thought”. Mr Monieson senior constantly reminded his students that academic theory must be closely connected to practical application to be relevant.
