  2. My condolences goes out to the family of Cyril. I knew Cy for a very long time and he always held a special place in my heart. He and my brother were good friends when they were in high school so I saw him quite often. For several years I babysat his son Mark every Monday night when he and Pam went bowling, and in later years he married a good friend of mine and lived less than a mile from me. He was a very talented man and had a lot of good attributes. Keep the good memories of him close to your heart wherever you go. Peace be with you all.

  3. The world has lost a great artist , and I have lost a great friend . Cyril painted several of my motorcycles back in our younger days. I always had fingerprints of total strangers on my gas tanks because people just had to touch that paint to make sure it was not a mirror, I still have several bikes with that paint on and I will always remember who was the best artist at making a bike stand out . RIP my old friend , I will miss you . Michael

  4. To the family of Cyril………….I had the pleasure of working with Cyril on and off for the past several years in a business capacity. In our last few meetings we loved to talk about cars and other automotive interests. He was very enjoyable and a pleasure to talk with. I will remember his graciousness and our conversations with a smile. Condolences to you all.
