Adi Dastur – my very dear friend of 50years
Adi Dastur – my very dear friend of 50years – passes away.
The Parsi community worldwide needs to know about this unassuming Canadian ‘atomic scientist’.
When I arrived in Toronto in 1964 as a new immigrant, Adi, who was at that time working at G.E. in Peterborough, Ont., would drive into Toronto every Friday evening and spend the weekend with me & another new Zoroastrian émigré, taking us around in his car, showing us his beloved Toronto.
A great Parsi diaspora atomic scientist. An unassuming soul, full of fun & jokes, with a wide range of interests spanning from the atom to music, woodwork who loved the theatre, opera, museums and travel. He also was an excellent cook – from Parsi to International cuisines.
He will be sorely missed by his wide circle of Toronto friends in general and the Toronto Zoroastrian community in particular. His funeral service was overflowing with the Toronto Parsi community & AECL scientists. His Obituary in the ‘Globe & Mail’ is attached.
