Sylvester Joseph “Syl” Pitts

    • RCE EIIR Badge

    We regret to advise of the death of Sylvester Joseph “Syl” Pitts at home in Hope, BC on 8 March 2003 at the age of 84 years.

    Syl was born in New Glasgow, N.S.  He was a veteran of the Second World War who served in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps and saw action in France and Germany.  After the war, he joined the Permanent Force with the Royal Canadian Engineers.  Syl eventually transferred to the Cook trade and retired from the army in Chilliwack in 1969.  He and his family relocated to Hope, BC where he worked at Ryan's Restaurant and the Coquihalla Camp Site.

    At the request of the family, there will be no service. {dcMay2017gd} [zsd, zpp]
