Canadian businessman Galen Weston has died at the age of 80. Weston was the founder of Loblaws.

Wrong. It was Theodore Pringle Loblaws who created Loblaws back in 1919. Garfield Weston (Galen Weston's father) is the one who acquired the majority share of Loblaws which the beginning was 100,000 shares in 1947. Galen taking over in 1971 having to restructure the company to be better prepared financially. 

Noting how the Loblaws acquisition was funded is because of Weston's bread company. 

Galen Weston and family was the second wealthiest family in Canada. They did plan ahead of time with Galen Weston Jr taking over the day to day operations of Loblaws Companies Limited in a full-time capacity. Especially since Loblaws is the biggest Canadian retailer too.
