I am very lucky to have known such a kind, caring and genuine person. Always up for an adventure he was curious and intelligent and was happy to share his knowledge with others. He was always considerate and supportive of his friends and an absolute pleasure to be around. I am so delighted he got to spend time with us and we got to spend time with him. We love you Syl
