WCISLAK Sylvester Sylvester Paul Wcislak was born on December 22, 1936. He grew up in the Polish Village, Toledo, OH. His parents were Mary and Joseph Wcislak and he has 4 brothers and 4 sisters. Syl graduated from Woodward High School and served in the U.S. Army 1960-1966. His life experiences shaped his values in life. This, along with his sense of humor and ambitions, created the wonderful many that he was. The love of his life was Marilyn. They were partners through all the ups and downs of life, love and family. Multiple times, they faced what seemed to be insurmountable challenges, yet together they not only survived, they thrived. Their life together had many blessings including over 51 years of marriage and five children, Patrick, Sandra, Joseph, Kristine and Martin. Sylvester's unquestionable work ethic and drive to provide for his family were hallmarks of his character. Syl goes on to be with Marilyn who went before him not so long ago.
