Sylvester, Gilman  
Gilman Weeks Sylvester crossed over to be with the Lord on April 18, 2015 at the age of 85 years. He died at the South Shore Hospital of heart failure with his family close by. Gil leaves his loving wife of sixty years Constance Connie (Godfrey) Sylvester; daughter Laura Stacy married to Wayne Jacobs of Mashpee, daughter Lynne Harkins married to Ed Harkins of Grafton, NH, granddaughters Katrina Jacobs of Falmouth and Victoria Jacobs of Hyannis, great granddaughter Leah Laurino of Hyannis, and nephews George Hosmer of North Carolina and Stephan Hosmer of Attleboro. Born in Braintree, Gil lived most of his life in the house his paternal grandparents built in East Weymouth. He was the son of the late George W. and Maude (Weeks) Sylvester and the brother of the late Doris (Sylvester) Arnold. Gilman graduated from Weymouth High School Class of 1947. He also graduated from the Building Construction Course at Wentworth Institute Class of 1950. He worked as a carpenter and foreman. He held a Construction Supervisors License. For most of his working career, he was employed by only two contractors taking part in the building of houses and commercial buildings. He was especially gifted in remodeling and repairs. For about 50 years, Gil and Connie owned and managed several small apartment buildings where there were plenty of opportunities to repair and modernize. They attended many educational workshops and courses. In their 40s they came to know the Lord in a personal way when they learned that one might have to make an accounting for those people and possessions that were placed in their hands. An apartment was never rented out unless they would live there themselves. Gil and Connie both loved dogs, having owned five. Without a dog in his last years, they would walk at nearby Bare Cove Park in Hingham not only for exercise but to see the many dogs there. Gil looked forward to the many times they hosted birthdays and holiday celebrations with their family. Visiting hours will be held at the Mortimer N. Peck-Russell Peck Funeral Home, 870 Broad Street (opposite the US Post Office in Jackson Square), East Weymouth, on Wednesday, April 22nd from 5-8pm. A funeral service will be held on Thursday, April 23rd at 11:00am at the Crossroads Worship Center, 241 Broad Street, Weymouth. Burial will follow at Blue Hill Cemetery, Braintree. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Crossroads Worship Center or the charity of your choice.
