Dear Jeanie, when my mom (Sheila) told me that Sydney passed away this week, my memories of him in Lac Paquin came flooding back. His sense of humor, kindness and outgoing personality will always be remembered by me and those that spent time in his company. I remember your trailer in the lot next to my grandparent's home at the end of the road. And I recall our family went with you and Sydney to his friend's home up North who was a concert pianist and I remember, to this day, how beautiful the music was. My years spent in Lac Paquin and its many wonderful memories will always remain a huge part of my life, as well as the special people who lived on Chemin Gascon. Kindest Regards, Lori Esar

Ivan, Shana & Sydney - 3 days ago
Dearest Hornsteins extended family, our deepest condolences for your loss. Sydney was an exceptional person, who touched our lives deeply. He loved life and exuded joy and wisdom to all who knew him. Inspirational, supportive, gregarious... his beautiful voice lives in our hearts. His letters, written with large capital letters, were usually mailed to the wrong address, but his love always found its way. Sydney and Jeanne always put a smile on my face after our phone calls. Sydney inspired, supported, encouraged... Before making tough decisions, I always wonder; "what would Sydney do"? Every time we call our daughter, we will be reminded of Sydney, as she's named after him. We feel deeply privileged, blessed, and honored to have known Sydney. God Bless. Ivan, Shana & Sydney.

Dear Jeanne, Shelley, Robin and Maxine and families. It was with sadness that I learned of Sydney’s passing and send my condolences. I always marveled at the joy he found in music and his yearning to share his gift with others; whether it was for events in Sauveur in the early days or poolside on Nun’s Island in the later years. He also managed to bring a similar positive energy to other parts of his life as well as in his interactions with all of those around him. He will be missed but the happy memories will live on.

Dear Jeanie, Robin and the entire Hornstein family, It was with great sorrow that I learned of Syd's passing. A family friend my entire life, I have many fond memories of our times together in the Laurentians. He was always the life of the party, getting everyone together around the piano. He spread joy and laughter wherever he was. In recent years, although he struggled with his health, he always brightened whenever he heard mention of my parents when I called, and there was always a song lurking just below the surface.. He will be missed by all.
