VAISLER o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2007-06-21 published
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.
