HILTON J. ROSEMARIN Hilton died at home on Sunday, May 8, of brain cancer. He leaves behind his broken hearted partner Philippa King and their two daughters Chloe (Adam) and Astrid (Andrew). Dear son of Anne Rosemarin and brother of Freya Schnitzler (Larry) and Arno Rosemarin. Predeceased by his father Samson, his father-in-law Robert King, his brother-in-law Matthew King and sister-in-law Brenda King. He was much loved and will be terribly missed by his extended family of aunts, cousins, nephews, nieces, his brother-in-law Andrew King and sister-in-law Jennifer King, as well as Maaret Koskinen. Hilton studied music and theatre in Montreal, where he was born on June 16, 1952, and studied technical theatre at Ryerson University in Toronto. He worked around the world as a Set Decorator on more than fifty motion pictures. He has received the Set Decorators Society of America's Outstanding Career Achievement Award. A complete list of his credits is available on the IMDB website. He faced terminal illness with courage, peace and equanimity. He has led the way for all of us. We thank our friends and family, the Palliative Care team and caregivers for all of their love, care and support, without which we would not have been able to care for Hilton at home as he wished. A memorial service will be held on Friday, May 13 at 2 p.m. at the Mount Pleasant Visitation Centre, 375 Mount Pleasant Road, Toronto, East Gate Entrance (416-485-5572). It will be webcast for the benefit of his many friends living all over the world who would like to share it with us.
