Being a Hoisting Engineer and his love for the outdoor is where he found his true passion for trapping and being in touch with the wilderness. He was a trapper for over 60 years and won many awards for his fur harvesting. He was a man who commanded a room with his loud voice, great stories and funny jokes. He had a passion for music and loved playing his guitar and signing. When he entered a room, everyone was sure to get some laughs. As funny as he was, his love for his family always came first. He was a great mentor to his kids and grandkids. He was proud to pass his knowledge and wisdom mainly to his son Robert (Bobby) who will continue his trap line and keep his passions alive.
As per his wishes there will be no visitations or service. A Celebration of Life will be held at Sylvio’s Camp on August 20, 2022, at 2:00 pm. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed. In lieu of flowers donations in Sylvio’s memory can be made directly to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Trapper’s Association will be greatly appreciated. Arrangements have been entrusted with Ranger’s Cremation and Burial Services Ltd. Online condolences can be posted at www.RangersSudbury.com.
