Dear David and other friends and family,
Thinking of you at this difficult time. Cyril was one of my father’s closest friends from childhood and was an honorary uncle to my sisters and I. I’m sure some of Cyril’s happiest times were on the water but time spent with Bob at the cabin in Morley’s siding were sure to be a pleasant adventure for all. I have so many happy memories of time spent with Cyril and his boys. Rest in peace Uncle Cyril.

Sorry to hear of Cyril’s passing.
I had a great appreciation for Cyril’s whit. He had a certain twist and handle on things which provided comic relief when needed. I always enjoyed his company and conversation.
I had the privilege of knowing him when he worked on electrical and electronics at the waterfront when I was a young man.
He was always pleased to see me there after. There is always a certain joy or chuckle when I think of him- Many pleasant memories!

David and Family,
We are so sorry to hear of your father’s passing. We spent a lot of good times together when we all lived on Doyle Street. Sincere condolences and deepest sympathy.
Jim and Connie Winter

I have had the privilege of knowing Cyril for quite some time as a member of Gower Street Church. I recently visited him at the Veterans Pavillion. His voice was no heard in song nor speaking. However, I remembered both and that will remain with me. Thank you Cyril
