VAISLER, beloved wife travelled the globe
By Glynnis MAPP, Sun Media, Thurs., June 21, 2007
Sydney VAISLER didn't play favourites.
"It didn't matter whether you were a wealthy businessman or someone who just went in for a new outfit once a year, he always gave you his best," said VAISLER's eldest son, Barry.
The man who would become known as a dedicated family man and a well-known member of London's business community, started his company -- VAISLER's -- in 1938, opening his first store on Dundas street.
He died Tuesday, after battling several strokes. He was 91 and is survived by his wife of 61 years, Sari, three children and seven grandchildren.
VAISLER was the son of a poor tailor from Romania. He grew up in Saskatoon and moved around in his youth, with his family finally settling in London.
Although he made a name for himself with his four Southwestern Ontario clothing stores for 55 years -- with stores in Hamilton, Brantford, and two in London -- VAISLER had always dreamed of becoming a doctor.
Before he went into the clothing business, VAISLER completed one year at University of Western Ontario for pre-med studies. But he had to drop out after the first year because his family couldn't afford the tuition.
"He was a man who liked to be his own boss, but he always encouraged us to pursue medicine," Barry VAISLER said.
Barry VAISLER and a few of Sydney VAISLER's grandchildren have gone on to study medicine.
VAISLER's wife remembers VAISLER as a bright and ambitious man, who was well read and loved to travel. The couple travelled extensively to Europe, Africa and Asia.
They met in 1946 while VAISLER was in Montreal visiting Friends on a business trip.
When he returned to London, VAISLER phoned Sari and asked her on a date.
Two years later, the couple married. They celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary last November.
"We were very blessed to be together for so long. We went all over the world together. And we loved it," she said.
In addition to being an avid traveller who "loved staying in hotels and dressing up," Barry said his father loved to socialize with family and Friends.
"Growing up, we always had a lot of gatherings."
As well as being a dedicated father and grandfather, VAISLER contributed to his Jewish community. He was president of the B'nai Israel Synagogue and a founding member of Or Shalom Synagogue.
"People in our community looked up to him and they were encouraged to make a better life for themselves, and start up their own businesses," said Fanny GOOSE, operator of J Goose Family Clothing in London.
"He was always giving back to the community… he would always chat with his customers. He really helped to build London businesses."
VAISLER continued to go to the office to oversee operations into his 80s, but had to stop after he fell ill.
The downtown VAISLER's store was the last of his businesses to close, in 1991.
VAISLER's funeral is today at 2: 30 p.m. at Or Shalom Synagogue, 534 Huron Street, London.
Donations in his memory can be made to Or Shalom Synagogue.

DYCK, Jakob " Jake"
Husband, father, tradesman, friend. Born September 19, 1933, in Osterwick, Ukraine. Died June 21 in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, of kidney cancer, aged 73.
By Rita BISHOP, Brenda DYCK and Wayne BISHOP, Page L8
What you noticed first about Jake was his size - he did not need padding to fill out his Santa suit.
As a young man, Jake's strength became his trademark. Fellow college students nicknamed him Samson after watching in disbelief as he ripped a phone book in half. Years later he amazed onlookers when, at age 70, he lifted the back end of a neighbour's car to release an injured pet following an accident.
A machinist by trade, Jake worked at Stelco Inc. in Hamilton, Ontario, before joining General Motors in St. Catharines. Jake's skill and expertise advanced him to a supervisory role in the foundry.
Jake was a devoted husband, married for more than 51 years to Eleonore (Lori) GOOSSEN. He was immensely proud of his two daughters and his son-in-law. Religious faith was key in Jake's life. He attended Fairview Mennonite Brethren Church, where he and Lori served as deacons for 12 years.
Retirement afforded Jake and Lori time to indulge Jake's love of travel. Jake also operated a workshop in his barn, repairing bicycles, tractors and farm equipment.
Jake loved to entertain with his tall tales. His barn doubled as the meeting place for his daily coffee group; most mornings found Jake surrounded by a circle of Friends and neighbours.
If not in his workshop, Jake could be found helping his friend Chris run the Virgil Truck and Car Washington. Dealing with the public was Jake's forte. His good-humoured service style and his ear-to-ear grin made him popular.
He liked to help: When Jake learned that migrant workers from the neighbouring farm had no transportation, he provided bicycles. He kept a jar for cash donations in his workshop. In addition to the entry fee of a Tim Hortons double-double, his morning coffee buddies were expected to contribute as Jake raised money to fund a well in Africa.
He and Lori routinely delivered groceries to the needy and opened their home on three occasions to foster children. His compassion extended to animals as well; over the years, Jake's menagerie included stray cats, dogs, chickens, a horse, a goat and a pig.
In January, Jake suffered a stroke and was later diagnosed with cancer. Hospital staff were amazed at his bright attitude and enjoyed the big smile he readily flashed for his many visitors. Even the hospital chaplain stopped by Jake's room regularly to receive inspiration.
"Big Jake" was a gentle giant with a heart of gold. The big shoes he leaves behind can never be filled but his big smile remains with those who knew him.
Rita BISHOP and Brenda DYCK are Jake's daughters, Wayne BISHOP his son-in-law.
