Fondly remembered as Uncle Sye to many nieces, nephews and friends. Sye immigrated to Canada from Holland in 1951 with his entire family. They eventually settled in Sherkston and Opa Sye never moved elsewhere. He loved his town. Opa Sye worked his entire career at the Port Colborne Hospital as an orderly where he made many friends. Opa Sye loved to be outside cutting wood, taking care of the farm, growing flowers but mostly he loved watching his grand children grow. A sincere thank you to ALL the staff at Northland Pointe for their excellent care of Opa Sye. He was very fortunate to be in your care and to be able to wake up to a view of the lake each morning. There will be a celebration of life at the DAVIDSON FUNERAL HOME, 135 Clarence Street, Port Colborne, on Friday, August 30, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. Those who wish to make a memorial donation, may do so to T.A.S.C.
