Pat I have fond memories of skating with you and Syl at the Greater Milwaukee Dance sessions and at the other rinks throughout Milwaukee over many years. The friendly smile and twinkle in his eyes enjoying the sport together with a cordial manner will be missed by all.

Dear Pat & all my cousins:
My sincere condolences at Uncle Syl’s passing. I will keep you all in my prayers. I am so glad that Ed & I got to visit with Uncle Syl and all of you at the Nieznanski cousins reunion a few years back.

I remember meeting Syl @ the old Mayfair rink when I first started to ice skate, and this elegant Gentleman came up to me and offered his help W/ my skating–I am forever grateful to Syl for helping me get over the fear of falling instantly w/ his gentle manner. Thanks again dear friend, and I know they will love you in heaven.
