Joseph Gilbert "Gil" Sylvester
1947 - 2012
Joseph Gilbert Sylvester "Gil", 65 of Bend Oregon passed away December 5th, 2012 at home after a long struggle with cancer. Gil was born November 3, 1947 in New Madrid, MO. Served in the Army in Fairbanks Alaska from 1966-1969.
Gil is preceded in death by his much loved adoptive parents Len and Queenabel Sylvester, of Kirkwood, MO, and Prosser, WA.
Gil is survived by a multitude of people who call him their best friend, daughter Michelle Helliger of St. Louis, wife Sylvia of 27 years of Bend, OR, stepson Doug Carrington of Sacramento, CA, and last but not least his beloved dog Beejay who lay at his side when he died.
Gil's ashes are to be scattered this spring in Prosser, WA. We were privileged to have known Gil and live with the hope to see him again someday.
