Sylvan gently slipped from this earth on February 10th after a short illness. He had a long adventurous and interesting life. Born in the mountains of Colorado, he learned to hunt, fish, and explore with his three younger brothers.
As a teenager, his family moved to Denver and after graduating from High School he joined the Navy where he spent most of the war in the Philippine Islands as a Corpsman. When the war ended, he returned to Denver and joined Public Service Company (Excel Energy). He retired after forty years.
In 2014 he moved to North Port, Florida to live with his daughter and enjoy the Florida life. He left behind three daughters. Ellona Nopens of San Diego (deceased), Sharon Wells Bassett and husband Warren of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Cindy Wells of North Port, Florida. He loved his granddaughter, Stacy Scraper and her husband James of North Port, Florida and his great granddaughter Briana who has three children, and for many years we had five generations sharing lives. He also had three stepdaughters, Robin, Becky, and Danelle, whom he loved dearly.
He loved the Arvada, Colorado Elks Club and was a member for sixty years. Syl went to aerobics almost every day. He adored the girls who helped and supported him. He will be missed by many family members and friends.

    Sylvan was delight to know. He always had a smile and seemed very happy & content. We enjoyed him coming to aerobics each morning. He had a smile and always a few happy words to exchange with everyone. His humor and smile will be missed. He was a great man and he served our country well. Rest in Peace, friend.

    Sylvan was a fun man. We played Texas-hold-um every Monday night. He loved driving around the Cypress Falls community with his Mobility cart. Some of the poker guys and myself would pick him up sometimes and take him out to dinner. Last December 29th we took him to dinner to celebrate his 100th birthday. Little did we know it would be the last supper. Rest in Pease my friend.

    So happy we spent those few days together at your 100th birthday celebration. You're at peace now and can roam those mountains and hunt and fish to your heart's content. Will miss you forever, Pop.Q
