I used to work with Syl at Red Bird. One of my favorite people I have ever had the privilege to work with. I haven't seen Syl probably since around 1971 or1972, but I will always remember what a kind-hearted person he was, and such a delightful person to be around. My condolences to his family.

Groeninger family, So very sorry for your loss. Not sure any of you will remember me but I lived on Bell Ave. off of Franklin St. with my aunt and uncle the Kaffenberger’s as a young child, I remember your family lived across the street.
