Remembering Tom Sypula
Posted Tuesday, February 22, 2011 by Ed Dalton
I remember like it was yesterday my first day at Trinity in 1999 the first person to stop at the high school to meet me was Tom Sypula. I did not know anything of the man but his passion for sports was evident from our first meeting. Our beginning was an intense rivalary, with in Tom's eyes him representing Washington and me representing Trinity in sports. Our last couple of years quite different, both of us had a genuine level of concern for some of the problems each other, and our families were dealing with over this time.
I considered Tom Sypula my freind, and his passion for sports, and for life, will be missed in our community. My deepest sympathy is extended to his wife and daughter who have known tragedy to well over the past few months. But if there is a happy thought in a tragedy like this one, it is that father and son who were best freinds in life, are together right now again, in heaven for eternity, and if Jesus Christ allows probably talking sports.
