This man was nothing short of wonderful. He brightened up my Grandma’s life tremendously in just one short year. (Marilyn Murphy) He treated me like another one of his grandchildren and for that I am thankful. I will never forget the stories of those two going dancing in the last year of Sylvan’s life and sometimes even falling together! The laughed about that often. It was an honor to know Sylvan and have him around at our family gatherings. My condolences to those who knew him better, as the small portion I saw of him will leave a great loss.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember Uncle Sylvan as a quiet man with a great laugh. We had a great conversation about his time being a real "cowboy" and his amazing wood art. Those we love dont go away,they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved still missed, and very dear.
