ADIE, Roland James
Passed away peacefully at home in the arms of his wife and snuggled up to his dogs on April 5, 2006, following a courageous battle with cancer. A life too short but filled with fun and a fierce enthusiasm for living. His passing will leave an unspeakable void in the hearts and lives of many: his family and a very large and caring extended family. He was the loved husband and soul mate of Clare (née PARKER.) Roland loved to live and lived to love. Generous, kind and warm hearted with a wonderful but mischievous sense of fun. A lover and creator of good food and at one with nature, animals and family. A gifted home renovator and craftsman. Roland will be lovingly remembered by all who knew him. During the toughest two years of his life great support was provided by a tremendous network of family, Friends, neighbours, colleagues and the most wonderful health team: his General Practioner team (Dr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON,) his oncology team at Trillium Health Centre (Dr. KING,) Community Care Access Centre (Peel), St. Elizabeth, Red Cross, Hospice of Peel and Wellspring. Thank you all, you made a difference. A celebration of Roland's life will be held at York Visitation, Chapel And Reception Centre - North York, 160 Beecroft Road (Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue), 416-221-3404 on Sunday, April 9th at 2 p.m. with visitation two hours prior to the service. If wished, in lieu of flowers and to honour Roland's love of family, donations to Sick Kid's would be a fitting tribute.

ADILMAN, Sid, 68
Writer was a one-man Canada Council
Canadian Press, Page S11
Toronto -- Toronto Star entertainment writer Sid ADILMAN, widely regarded as one of the greatest champions of Canadian movies, music, books and television, died of heart failure at his Toronto home on October 14. He was 68.
"He was like the Canada Council for the Arts, only he worked for the Toronto Star," said Maureen O'DONNELL, a communications consultant and long-time friend. "He didn't hand out money as they do, he handed out care, he handed out wanting us to be the best we could possibly be."
Mr. ADILMAN was long considered one of the most influential cultural journalists in Canada. "It was so much easier for us to just roll over and let the American cultural and celebrity juggernaut roll right over us, but he would stick his pen in the cultural dike," recalled the Star's media critic, Antonia ZERBISIAS.
In 2002, Mr. ADILMAN retired from the Star. He had joined the paper in 1960, but left in 1963 for the now-defunct Toronto Telegram but returned in 1971. In the 1970s and 1980s, he was the Canadian editor of the trade paper Variety and served as the Star's entertainment editor from 1986 to 1991.
He is survived by his wife Toshiko and sons Mio and Nobu.

ADILMAN, Sid
Passed away at his home in the Annex, age 68, after years of living so courageously with heart and kidney illness. Devoted husband to Toshiko. Supportive and loving father to sons Mio and Nobu, daughters-in-law Jessica GAVIN and Andréa PICARD. They are forever grateful for him in their lives and for showing them the way to Prince Edward Island. Sadly missed by his extended family, many Friends, journalism colleagues particularly at the Toronto Star, and by anyone who has ever worked in the Canadian arts and entertainment community - bad reviews notwithstanding. He was your fiercest defender and promoter. In lieu of flowers, tax-deductible donations gratefully accepted at the Toronto International Film Festival Group in support of the Sid Adilman Festival Scholarship. Please contact Sarah BULLICK at 416-934-3211 or sbullick@tiffg.ca. Public celebration of his life takes place at 3: 30 p.m. Sunday, November 12, 2006 at Trinity-Saint Paul's United Church 427 Bloor Street W. (closest Toronto Transit Commission: Spadina). All are welcome. Wheelchair accessible.
