The Royal Hamilton Light Infantry
Sydney's and my paths crossed frequently over the past ten years as our offices were in the same building. We enjoyed many conversations about the The Royal Hamilton Light Infantry. Syd was very proud of his great grandfather's rich history with The RHLI. Sydney was a true gentleman who was caring and kind and always had a smile on his face.
My condolences to the Hamber family on their great loss. I only knew Syd briefly from a connection this past March with regard to the Tamahaac Club Vimy commemmoration, but his commitment to his family, his club and his heritage was clear and strong. I wish my friendship with him had been longer.
Sydney, the bonding agent in our family. The bonds strengthen by the many diverse stories he told. If we were to ask you to raise your hands if you have heard Sydney tell a great story, we are sure all of you would have your hands high in the air. If we were to ask you if you had heard the same story twice, once again, rest assured that you would all raise your hands. Unfortunately, with Sydney's passing the story telling has ended. All of us in Vancouver (now numbering over 20) will miss him!
Only met Syd a few times over the years, but he was a gentleman and an inspiration to my real estate career, he was the kind of guy I wanted to become, as he was very kind and generous, open to talk and share, and not one ounce of pretension. Rare indeed. Wish I had made more time to get to know him. My condolences to the family, and all those who knew and associated with him. God speed
