Sylvain Sly Paul Brillon

October 28, 1970 - November 21, 2016



Oct 28, 1970 – Nov 21, 2016

 Born in Haileybury Ontario, Sly grew up in nearby New Liskeard as part of a very large and loving French-Canadian family. Being adventurous, fearless and determined, Sly came out West in 1992 in his VW van with his faithful dog Mingus. He lived and worked throughout BC, eventually making his home in Slocan. He started working in the tree planting industry then, along with his friend Mike Naylor, built a sawmill and small construction company which grew to become Sockeye Enterprises. As an entrepreneur, Sly helped many people and was always willing to give them a chance to advance themselves.

Sly lived life to the fullest; when not working, he was a great BBQ host and loved to go boating, skiing, hiking, sledding, travelling and attending music festivals. He was a loyal, loving and generous son, brother, uncle and friend. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Slocan Valley Seniors’ Housing Society (svhousing.ca), a project dear to his heart in the town that he loved. There will be an open house at his home in Slocan on Saturday Nov 26 from 10am to 3pm.
