At this time, he bought the east half and continued farming until 1973 when he then retired to Gladstone. Sylvester also served in the Armed Forces from 1942 to 1945. In 1979, Sylvester married Thelma Carefoot and they enjoyed many years going on numerous trips, visiting family and friends, gardening and taking part in community activities. He was a member of the Legion Branch #110, Gladstone Seniors Drop In Centre and Gladstone Curling Club. He also took an active role in the community delivering Meals On Wheels and helping out with community events such as Fair Day, Sports Day and bingo. The family would like to thank the Home Care staff of the Centennial Apartments, the staff of the Gladstone Hospital, and the staff of Third Crossing Manor for the kind care Sylvester received. Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, February 20, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. at the Gladstone United Church with Rev. Heather Lea officiating. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to Northwest Handi Transit, Box 757, Gladstone, MB, R0J 0T0 or to a local charity. Deep in our hearts you are fondly remembered, Sweet, happy memories cling round your name; True hearts that loved you with deepest affection Always will love you in death the same.
