New husband killed in work accident
Man crushed days after starting job
He was trying to bring wife here
By Alejandro BUSTOS, Staff Reporter
A newly married man, who was helping his wife immigrate to Canada from India, died yesterday after being crushed in an industrial accident in Scarborough.
The victim, identified by sources as Salim SIDAT, 30, was killed after being caught around 8: 15 a.m. in a clothes pressing machine at Rio Textiles Exporters Ltd., at 1840 Ellesmere Rd. near Bellamy Rd.
"He just started last week on the job," said Mohamed PATEL, a friend of SIDAT.
"Just last night (Tuesday) I thought to myself that I should call him so I could talk with him," PATEL said. "Now it's too late."
Stunned Friends gathered at the business after hearing the news.
One man, who was so distraught he couldn't speak, could only mumble the name " SIDAT" when asked to describe his friend. His eyes then began to tear up before he left to compose himself.
Others said they were too devastated to talk.
Toronto police determined SIDAT's death was the result of a mishap after they spent the morning at the site.
The Ministry of Labour has issued a stop work order against Rio Textiles while it investigates, spokesperson Belinda SUTTON said.
She could not provide more information about the accident because it's still being probed.
A person who answered the telephone at Rio Textiles said the company had no comment.
PATEL's Friends reported that the native of India went to an immigration lawyer on Tuesday so he could sponsor his wife who is still there.
The couple were married about two months ago, they added.
SIDAT's cousin is the only relative he had in Canada, PATEL said.
PATEL reported that he spoke to SIDAT's brother in England and the sibling is making plans to come to Canada for the funeral.

Beloved son of Farid and Susan SIDDIQUI, brother of Yasmeen, Yousuf, and Sarah, died in a motorcycle accident near Chiang Rai, Thailand. Tariq deeply loved his Friends and family. He taught us how to love the simple things in life often overlooked - a sunset, animals, the beach and the sun. Not content to watch the hours tick away in an office, Tariq chose to embrace each and every second he was blessed to have, whether deep sea diving, golfing, trekking or playing with his cats and following soccer. We miss him and pray to God to rest his soul in peace. In memory of Tariq please make a donation to a South Asia earthquake relief fund or the Humane Society.

Rafael ALFANDARY: Jeweller to the stars
By Tabassum SIDDIQUI, Staff Reporter
Rafael ALFANDARY was a man's man, but it was his affinity for women that led to his career as a jeweller whose bold pieces adorned flamboyant celebrities in the 1970s.
He had been around the world and back but returned to Toronto in 2000 to die after being diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a rare form of blood cancer.
ALFANDARY, whose chunky metal and stone jewellery was worn by Liberace, Margaret Trudeau, Muhammad Ali and actor Lorne Greene during the heyday of his career in Toronto in the '70s, died Tuesday in his apartment studio at the age of 66.
"He wanted to die in Canada -- he had a great time in Toronto and he always identified himself as Canadian," his wife Eriko MIYAZAWA said. "When I first met him, he had a heavy Yugoslavian accent so I was surprised to hear he was Canadian."
Born in Belgrade, ALFANDARY and his mother were the only members of his Jewish family to escape a concentration camp. She died when he was 11. He emigrated to Israel when he was 20 and trained as a mechanical engineer.
In 1970, he and his first wife relocated to Toronto because he did not want his two young daughters, Dalia and Ruth, who would later go on to become jewellery designers in New York and Bali, to join the army.
While studying English at George Brown College, he stumbled into the career that would bring him fame and fortune.
"He was always a ladies' man," MIYAZAWA said. "He wanted to give a gift to his teacher, so he made some jewellery with copper wire that his landlord had. She really loved that piece and showed it to Friends who wanted more, and it all took off from there."
ALFANDARY could hardly keep up with the orders pouring in for his handmade pieces. One of his first high-profile clients was Margaret Trudeau, who wore one of his necklaces to an opening of Parliament.
"The '70s in Canada was a time of boldness, and his jewellery made sense in that era because everything else at the time was dainty and all the same, but his pieces were very individual, with a distinctive look," MIYAZAWA said. "One day Mr. Trudeau recognized him in a crowd when he was giving an interview, and he was very proud of that."
ALFANDARY soon became a media darling, known simply as Rafael. In 1973, he was commissioned to create the crown for the Miss Canada beauty pageant. He worked with Marilyn Brooks, designing pieces for her clothing line. And his jewellery also appeared as featured prizes on the popular television game show Let's Make a Deal!
By the late 1970s, ALFANDARY had sold more than half a million pieces. His jewellery was sold in all the major department stores across Canada, in airports, and six stores of his own. He had 60 employees, including a small throng of lawyers, accountants, and advertising people.
Boxer Muhammad Ali liked the large size and heft of the pieces. Jewellery-loving entertainer Liberace became a good friend. Earlier this year, singer Prince wore one of ALFANDARY's necklaces to the People's Choice Awards.
"I first met Rafael in his glory in the '70s, when he was quite well-known in Toronto circles," says friend Sam BERKEL, who was ALFANDARY's neighbour in the Manulife Centre in the '70s. The pair renewed their Friendship more than two decades later when ALFANDARY moved back into the highrise after his return to Toronto.
BERKEL recalls his old friend as a "man's man" who liked to gamble and enjoyed the high life. "His jewellery was worn by a lot of celebrities, so back then he led a very popular lifestyle -- lots of wine parties with the who's who."
In the 1980s, ALFANDARY remarried and moved to Austin, Texas, where he dabbled in fine jewellery before divorcing and heading halfway around the world to an ashram in Goa, India. He and MIYAZAWA met at a meditation retreat in Pune, India, in 1999.
The two married in Goa in 1999 but moved back to Toronto the following year when ALFANDARY was diagnosed with myeloma. Doctors told him he only had two years to live.
ALFANDARY threw himself into his work, creating new pieces of jewellery, including a line for pets, sculpture-like clocks, and intricate knobs for doors and drawers.
Though increasingly debilitated by the cancer, ALFANDARY refused to give up smoking or change his diet despite taking eight different medications daily.
"He was getting worse and worse every day, but he was still doing his thing," BERKEL said. "He had a hunger to create and design. It gave him pleasure to see women wearing his jewellery. ALFANDARY" died peacefully in the Manulife Centre apartment that doubled as his work studio."He had a full view of Toronto from his bedroom it's a beautiful view, and his life ended there," said his wife. "He lived his life so fully -- he was an amazing survivor and took total charge of his own life, and Toronto gave him a new future and broadened his horizons."
Yesterday, Friends and family gathered in a room on the 31st floor of the Manulife Centre, looking south over the city skyline, to remember ALFANDARY. It was a day for intimates, not celebrities.
"He was crazy about this building," MIYAZAWA said.

With great sadness we announce that on December 23, 2005, Vasiliki Koula SIDERIS succumbed to her 2 year battle against recurrent Hodgkin's disease, at the age of 78. She was at her home, where she was being lovingly cared for by her family and mercifully was without pain when she gently fell into her eternal sleep. Please know that the family is at peace with this dramatic change in their lives and are grateful they had the opportunity to provide for a comfortable environment during the release of her life. Koula was born September 11th, 1927 in the small village of Avgerino, Kozani, Greece and came to Thunder Bay, Canada exactly 55 years ago to the day she died, to marry her loving and devoted husband Anthony. She is survived by her husband and daughters, Joanna and Irene and son-in-law Klaas and by her two beloved sisters in Greece, Kostanto and Kalliroi and their respective families. As an involved member of the Thunder Bay Greek Orthodox Community Koula became good Friends with many of them, considering them as part of her immediate family. She was well known to others in Thunder Bay since she helped her husband run a Confectionery store and Newsstand on Simpson Street, that he and his family had for 52 years. She had the good fortune to travel extensively, throughout Canada and the U.S.A., to Britain, many countries of Europe, Istanbul, Egypt, a pilgrimage to the Holy Lands and of course throughout her native country of Greece. Having moved to Toronto 3 years ago, she was an avid explorer of all it had to offer, particularly the malls, stores and garden centres. Though she only had a public school education she was engaged and well informed in the politics of Canada and internationally, and was wellread enjoying books by Tolstoy and Alexander Solzhenitsyn. She encouraged her daughters to be educated, appreciate the arts, be well-read and as good a cook and hostess as herself. The family would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at the Oncology Department at Toronto East General Hospital, and the palliative care staff of St. Elizabeth's...they helped make this time a bearable one. The Visitation and prayer will be this Wednesday, December 28th at the Heritage Funeral Centre on 50 Overlea Boulevard at 7 p.m. The Funeral will be the following day at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church on 30 Thorncliff Park Drive at 10 a.m. Though flowers are appreciated, the family kindly requests that consideration be given to the Canadian Cancer Society. The family would like to wish that everyone, especially at this time of year, pause for a moment and enjoy what you have, and each other because it can change in a heartbeat forever.

WILKINS, Eric Lionel (May 10th, 1916-May 13th, 2005)
It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Eric, in his 90th year, early in the morning in his home, Southbrook Lodge, Brampton. We are thankful his passing was peaceful. Devoted husband of the late Frances Marion SIDSWORTH (died 1977) and caring brother to Mrs. Jean POLLOK. Cherished Dad of Sandi HICKS (Jim), Terry SHAW (Bob), Pam ANDRES, Ann WILLE (Mark), Lyn CAMPBELL (Don) and Susan SPRINGALL (Ron.) Adored grandfather of Ryan, Shelley, Kristine, Kelly, Andrew, Stephanie, Melanie, Thomas, Victoria, Rachel, Tyler, Natalie, Owen, Alyssa and great-grandfather to Angelina. Dad was born in England where he grew up with his sister Jean and mother Marion. He excelled in swimming and was a member of England's National Polo team. Dad graduated from the prestigious St. Paul's school in London and went on to graduate in Electrical Engineering. He signed up for the Merchant Navy as an engineer during World War 2. Post-war, Dad immigrated to Canada in 1950. He met and married Mom in 1952 and was fondly known as "Goof". They welcomed 6 girls into the world and had many fun years watching the family grow. Dad worked for Canada Standards Association all his working career. He was dedicated to improving standards in Canada and was a pioneer in arson investigation. He retired in his 60's and continued to do contract work well into his 70's. Dad instilled a love of art, fitness, cooking and nature in all of us. He was one of the founders of the Franklin Carmichael Art Group and imported the first fold-up kayak to Canada. In Dad's younger years golf was his sport and travelling his pastime. In later years, he kept his mind sharp with crossword puzzles and bridge. He was always up for a laugh and could always remember a joke. There was nothing Dad loved more than his family. Dad lived a simple life and gave much to others. Dad, we adore you and will always cherish the memories we have. A memorial service has been planned for Friday, June 17th at York Cemetery, 160 Beecroft Rd., North York, from 1-4 p.m. (416-221-3404). Please drop in.
