In May of 1987 Sylvester married his childhood friend Javinia Wright and from this union 3 children were born. Sylvester loved his family more than life itself. He enjoyed listening to his Oldie but Goodies, especially Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes, The Temptations and Smokey Robinson just to name a few. He enjoyed family gatherings, seeing all four of his girls together along with the grandchildren truly was his hearts desire. He didn’t drink but he loved his Pepsi so much so that he would call it his “Beer”. Whenever you heard “Young” you knew he was talking to one of his four girls for that is what he effectually called all of his girls whenever they were around.
