In the mid 1950’s, my parents met Uncle Syd and Auntie Irene on a plane, on their way to Canada. Uncle Syd and Auntie Irene were impossibly interesting and beautiful. I loved them so very much! I remember excitedly visiting them, traveling in the backseat of my parent’s car, listening to “Calling all Briton’s” on the radio. A child of the ‘70’s will know what I am talking about. It was fun and exciting to visit Uncle Syd and Auntie Irene. They had beautiful Siamese cats, Nico and Samira, and if the cats came to you, you were chosen. Uncle Syd was a storyteller, a singer, a comedian and a handsome devil. Auntie Irene reminded me of Mary Tyler Moore, independent and gorgeous. I remember many Halloween and Christmas parties, peeking down the stairs to see what fun was happening. After Auntie Irene died, Uncle Syd married Joyce, a perfect match. Many blessings to Joyce and may you be reunited with the most handsome and wonderful man named Syd xoxoxo,

I first met Sydney in the spring of 1959 at the High Park Tennis Club and we became instant friends playing tennis together and socializing together with his wife Irene and my wife Jill. Saturday evenings we would get together to play cards ,smoke and drink cheap wine. Then later in the days of house parties Sydney was always invited to our home and Sydney would be the one with the jokes that made the ladies giggle. Sydney also had a wonderful voice so he would frequently serenade us as we danced the nights away.
Early in the 1980"s Sydney was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in his hands and knee joints so he had to give up tennis and took up golf which he played for the rest of his sporting life and I should say he always beat me.
In the summer of 1995 we were honored to to hold the marriage ceremony of Sydney and Joyce in our home.
As we grew older we still socialized frequently, played golf and occasionally vacationed together or met up with each other in Florida and Myrtle Beach.
Sydney had the charming ability to talk his way out of trouble, however on one occasion he talked his way into deeper trouble at my expence when I was pulled over for speeding on a quiet country road. The police officer was very polite and listened as Sydney explained that we were rushing to a golf course and did not want to be late for our tee off time. The more he talked the higher I could see the penalty climb. The officer finally gave me the ticket but luckily he did not give me any demerit points. Obviously we were late for our tee off time. On another occasion we all went out for dinner and at the restaurant there was a No Parking sign, Sydney chose to ignore it saying that it did not apply after 7;00 PM even though we all felt that he should park elsewhere. When we left the restaurant 2 hours later his car had been towed. It cost a taxi ride to the car lot that it had been towed to plus an $80.00 fine. Sydney was furious but could not talk his way out of this trouble.
Sydney was a very proud and generous person and liked to do things first class. He would frequently give me materials for home maintenance or personal items such as a shaving brush which I still have and use every day. Every time I use it I think of the many good times I spent with Sydney over the 60 years of friendship.
Goodbye My Friend Sleep Well.
