It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Sydney Garwood Burlock (Papa). After a brief battle with cancer, he passed away peacefully surrounded by family on September 16th, 2022.
Dear husband and best friend of Lynda Burlock (nee Lloyd). Survived by his three sons: Steven (Karen), Michael (Laura) and Brian. His eleven grandchildren: McLean, Brooke, Courtney, Megan, Emma, Josh, Alex, Mackenzie, Madison, Ryan and Sarah. Also survived by brother Charles (Joyce), sisters Sharon and Ann. Predeceased by parents Sydney Garwood Burlock and Georgia Burlock and sister Valerie Reynolds.
Sydney joined the Canadian Armed Forces in 1964 and served for 33 years as a medic in the military. After retirement, Syd and Lynda enjoyed spending their winters for 20 years in Yuma Arizona where they made many friends and memories. Syd made friends who introduced him to and shared his favourite hobby and passion for metal detecting. Summers were spent here in Canada camping, visiting with family, friends and grandchildren while connecting and talking around the campfire. Syd (Papa) was a kind, loving and generous person with an amazing spirit and an incredible sense of humour. He touched everyone who knew him with his kindness and generosity.
He will be greatly missed. But as Syd always said “the sun always comes up the next day!”
