October 23, 1929 - September 8, 2015 It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our father, Merv Adelson, former head of Lorimar Studios and Vice Chair of Time Warner, innovator and pioneer of the city of Las Vegas and developer of La Costa Resort and Spa. He is survived by his children Ellen and Richard Ross, Gary and Carrie Adelson, Andy Adelson, Lexi Adelson and Ava Adelson, grandchildren Zachary Ross, Jonathan Adelson, Kori Adelson, Jeffrey Adelson and Lauren Adelson. And his dog, Teddy. Merv was 85 years old. Services are private.
