RADOSTITS, Doctor Otto M., C.M., D.V.M.
(August 31, 1934-December 15, 2006)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Otto Martin RADOSTITS on December 15, 2006. The family is thankful for his many years of wonderful health and his productive life. We are joyful that his courageous battle with kidney cancer is over and he is at peace with his God. Otto was born in Edmonton, the eldest son of Austrian immigrants, Stephen and Hermine RADOSTITS (deceased), who instilled in their four boys the values of the Roman Catholic faith, a strong work ethic and the importance of a good education. Otto's early years on a mixed farm and his high school job at the Blue Cross Animal Hospital in Edmonton were the beginnings of a life long passion for veterinary medicine. Otto received his DVM from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1959 and a Master of Science degree from the University of Saskatchewan (U. of S.) in 1967. As a veterinary educator, clinician and author, Otto had a profound influence on his students, on the establishment and growth of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the U. of S. and on his beloved profession. On his retirement in 2002, he was appointed Professor Emeritus and the Western Canadian Association of Bovine Practitioners established the O.M. Radostits Legacy Fund to fund an annual lecture series on bovine medicine. Otto received many awards and honours during his career. He treasured his teaching awards, particularly the Master Teacher award from the U. of S. He was humbled and proud to be made a member of the Order of Canada in 2003. In 2006 he received the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association President's Award to recognize his dedication and contributions to the Association and he also received the Sask Centennial Medal. Otto's wise counsel, mentorship and his numerous authoritative textbooks on large animal medicine were sought after nationally and internationally. Otto loved classical music, attending the Saskatoon Symphony, singing (especially the annual WCVM student Christmas carolling), reading, tennis, biking and long walks, even at -30°. His most special times were spent at family celebrations with his wife and extended family. He loved to debate the issues of the day - his daily reading of the Globe and Mail made him a formidable debater and kept us all informed. Although, his profession allowed him to travel the world, there was no place like home. He was a proud Canadian and always thankful for the many opportunities our country provides for all. Otto leaves his loving and devoted wife, Ruth (Clancy,) six children and their families: Anna ALDERSON (Pryce,) Liam and Erin; Eileen RADOSTITS, Gershon and Sophia Julia RADOSTITS (Richard HONG,) Sebastian and Justin; Stephen RADOSTITS (Robin FISHER), Todd, Mark, Kurt and Joshua; Anita LIVINGSTONE (Brent,) Kayden and Chloe; and Jennifer ARTHURS (Richard,) Brendan and Lauren; his three brothers Ivan (Mary Agnes), Peter (Brenda) and Francis (Pat) and their families; his sister-in-law Velma KELEHER and brother-in-law Michael CLANCY and their families his special cousins Mitzi CROWE (Fred,) Mary METZ (Harry,) Jean EASTWOOD (Kirby) and their families; and the RADOSTITS clan in Chicago. Otto also leaves many Friends and veterinary colleagues around the world. We all will miss deeply his strong presence, his beautiful loud voice and his challenges. Prayer service will be held at Holy Family Church (110 - 104th Street, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan S7N 1M8) on Thursday, December 21, 2006 at 7 p.m. and the Funeral Mass will be held at Holy Family on Friday, December 22, 2006 at 11 a.m. Private family interment at Holy Cross Cemetery in Edmonton to be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Saint Paul's Hospital Foundation Inc. (1702 - 20th St. W, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, S7M 9Z9), Holy Family Church Building Fund or a charity of choice. Arrangements in care of John Schachtel - Mourning Glory Funeral Services, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (306-978-5200).

ELIA, Mariano Antonio (1917-2006)
On January 24th, after a lengthy and valiant struggle with cancer, Mariano ELIA passed away at the age of 88. A pioneer in Canadian building history, he left his distinctive mark on Toronto's architectural landscape. Having defied death many times in recent years, it was easy to imagine he'd be back up for yet another round. While most people do less in old age, Mariano continued to seek out new challenges. He was the kind of man who, at the age of 86, bought the house next door to him, not because he needed to, but because it was a gigantic fixer-upper. It wasn't unusual to see him standing atop some scaffolding, oblivious to the danger - that was just his way. Born in 1917, Mariano's story began like that of so many other immigrants coming to Canada. At the age of 12, he left the small town of Aprigliano in Calabria, Italy, and ended up in Toronto after a difficult passage through Ellis Island. One year later, in 1930, he was selling doughnuts door-to-door near his home on Ossington Avenue, struggling to earn some pocket change. Mariano learned construction skills from his father and at the age of twenty-four, started his own company, Dell Holdings (later The Elia Corporation). In the 1950s, Dell was considered one of Canada's top five general contractors. At thirty-four, he developed the country's first successful satellite community, Erindale Woodlands, on 450 acres in Mississauga. The project was considered risky at the time because of its sheer size and rural location. This same drive and determination led him to later build large housing developments, schools and government buildings. For those who knew him well, Mariano was complex, difficult at times, but never dull. "It wasn't just that he was a highly successful businessperson, a visionary really", Harry ARTHURS, his friend and the former president of York University, recently wrote. "It was - for me - that he was a man of such extraordinary character. He had great spirit, great energy and great style. We talked about so many things: politics, children, history, architecture, land development, art, gossip, my university, even figs." Time spent with Mariano often involved some sort of discovery, be it scouting property, discussing the subtleties of paint and light, taking long walks or learning how to cook risotto. He loved to work with his hands: he was a carpenter, bricklayer, a draftsman, a chef and an artist. From an early age, Mariano painted and sculpted - even painting on burlap when he couldn't afford canvas. He enjoyed gardening and even wrote poetry. His Calabrese-style cooking was rustic, improvisational and delicious. In 1984, he created The Mariano Antonio Elia Foundation supporting humanitarian, educational, religious and scientific aims. As he once explained in an interview, "I learned at a very early age that I was in Canadians' backyard. I was the stranger and I was the one that had to adapt. It's my country now… I say I owe a lot to Canada." His commitment to philanthropy continued to grow in his later years. He established The Mariano A. Elia Chair in Italian-Canadian Studies at York University, The Dr. Mariano Antonio Elia Chair in head and Neck Cancer Research at Toronto's Princess Margaret Hospital and The "Off the Wall" Hands-On Centre for Children at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Mariano bore every honour he received with immense pride. In 1985, he accepted an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from York University. He was knighted (Commendatore) by the Italian government in 1988 and was also made First Honorary Citizen of the town of Rende in Calabria. Two years later he was made a Knight of Malta, Sovereign Military Order of Saint John of Jerusalem. Just over a year before he died, Mariano acquired a 100-acre working farm and any given Sunday might be spent with his youngest grandkids, collecting eggs and picking tomatoes. Then it was pasta or a frittata for supper back at his house. Big builder man that he was, this is how his family likes to remember him best. Mariano was the father of Marlene DELZOTTO, Valerie ELIA, Susan ZORZI, Paul ELIA, Mario ELIA and Lisa Elia WALSH; loving nonno of Lia, Michaele, Gian Paolo, Noelle, Rochelle, Sandro, Mariano, Emilio, Luca, Dylan, Kiri and Cody; bisnonno (great-grandfather) of James, Shannon, Alessandro, Ryan and Joshua. He is survived by his former wife, Ines, his brother Ernest and sisters Helen and Gloria. He was the beloved uncle of Paul MANTELLA. A private service was held on January 26th. If so desired, donations to The Mariano Elia Foundation can be sent to: 1100 Central Parkway West, Unit 1, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada M5E 4E1.
