Many, many happy returns to this fine artist and truly great gentleman!
I'm fortunate to call Sy a friend. I can tell you that he really is one of these well-known pros who's just as nice a guy as you'd ever want to meet. A couple of times, I've asked him to run the Berndt Toast Gang meeting when I can't make it, and he never hems or haws. He's there, ready to help.
Sy's still busy, painting, and attending conventions, with fans worldwide. Happy birthday, Sy Barry!
