Born in St. Lucia, Sylvin immigrated first to Curacao in 1949, and then to Canada in 1958 to further his education at Acadia University, University of British Columbia, and Wilfrid Laurier University. A social worker by profession, Sylvin had a compassionate heart and a gracious spirit. He was an avid sportsman with a special fondness for tennis, sailing, and soccer.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
