    • ADLYS, John Walter-Arrived May 16, 1935, Medicine Hat, departed December 9, 2002, Vancouver. Survived by his wife, Ethel and son, Jason. He is predeceased by his father, John Peter and mother, Amelia Sadkowski. Brother to Mary, Anne, Jeannette, Edward, the twins, Bernard and Brenda. In conjunction with his father John they operated the first entertainment "dining lounge" in Waterloo, the "Princess Lounge" at the Kent Hotel, known today as the Huether Hotel. In the early 1970's, Walter then established the first "night club" on King St. West in Kitchener, known as Jason's, now Ziggy's Cycle. This 1,000 seat venue was host to many famous U.S. entertainers. Walter was an unsuccessful Mayoral candidate for the City of Kitchener. He was elected as mayor of Columbus Boys Club, Toronto, in 1950. In later years, he was known to many people in the community as "The Ragman" through his entertaining commentaries on everyday life that appeared in the K-W Record and K-W Pennysaver. He will be missed by his many friends that understood his passion for life. Expressions of sympathy can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society at 241 Duke St. W., Kitchener, N2H 3X5.1a
