Syl was truly a kind and gentle man. We had a ball onTuesday night for our weekly pool game with Jim Shad, Jim Rompel Syl & I. No home repair went without notice when Syl was around. Mention it and Syl would take care of it. He was truly representative of”The Greatest Generation”. He will be greatly missed. God Bless his family.
