Sylvestre, Gregoire “Greg” James


We are sad to announce the passing of our beloved son and brother, Gregoire “Greg” James Sylvestre on Monday, June 21, 2021 at the age of 57.


Greg was born in Edmonton on November 21, 1963 to Phil and Mona Sylvestre. His life was filled with many accomplishments including, Youth of the Year in 1988, and raising funds for the Cochrane Bethany Care Centre to name just a few. He was employed most recently with CNRL and before that Yellow Pages, RBC, Medi-Chair, H & R Transport, and in his younger years at the Town of Cochrane as a dispatcher for the Fire and Ambulance Department. We will always remember his incredible smile, quick wit, and his determination to participate in as many activities as possible.  He will remain in our hearts and memories forever.


Greg is survived by his Mother, Mona; siblings, Tony (Teresa), Jo-Anne, Troy (Deanna), Lisa (Brent), Jean-Paul (Jennifer); numerous nieces and nephews; great-nieces and nephews; and long-time friends, Mike (Kara) Wilfley. Greg was predeceased by his father, Phil; and his brother, Todd.

The family would like to thank the Peter Lougheed Hospital Staff on Unit 38 for their great care.
