DICKSON, Adolph M.D. - It's with sadness that we announce the passing of Adolph Dickson, M.D. on Sunday, November 4, 2012 at UniversalCare in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada. Dolph, as he was affectionately called by his family and friends, was 98 years old and leaves behind his beloved wife Elizabeth Joan and his sister Julija. Cherished father and father-in-law to Linda and David, Patricia and Ross, Ken and Vida, Birute and Don, Dalia and Arvydas. He will be lovingly remembered by his grandchildren Alnis, Luke, Ian, Ashley, Kevin, Victoria, Darius, Richard, John and his nine great- grandchildren. Dolph was born on May 10, 1914 in Smilgiai, Vilkaviskis, Lithuania and earned his Degree in Medicine before immigrating to Canada. He practised family medicine in Willowdale, Ontario from 1962-1994. In his spare time he enjoyed golfing, skiing, the opera, the symphony and the ballet. Dolph will be fondly remembered by family, friends and former patients in Canada, the USA and Lithuania. Special thanks to the incredibly compassionate staff at UniversalCare LTC, Mackenzie Heath and Rayoak Place.
