Let the memory of Sylvester be with us forever

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Sylvester Johnson, Sr., 52, born on December 1, 1959 and passed away on August 30, 2012. 

Just before midnight on August 30, 2012 God decided it was time for Sylvester's soul to be at his side. God would not have taken our beloved Sly unless he left us with something to remember him by, and we are so grateful to have him remain with us through his wonderful sons Sylvester Jr., Samson and Savion. We remember Sly for his dedication to love, family and his community. He loved his family deeply and presence will be missed by friends, colleagues and customers because Sly was a man of character who celebrated the human experience and he truly enjoyed the life he was given! We will remember him forever.

Please help Sylvester (Sly's) family raise the necessary costs for the boys to attend the family memorial that will take place on September 14, 2012 in St. Louis. Donations are being accepted on at the following email address: All additional donations will go toward Sly's two young children, Samson and Savion's college fund.
