    • BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH of SYLVESTER "KIM" GOOKIN:

      Born on August 16, 1940, in Quincy, MA, to Sylvester R. Gookin and Ruth M. Cashman.

      Sylvester attended Tufts University in Medford. He worked for many years as a mechanical engineer, spending a majority of his career at C.I. Hayes, a company from which he retired from, where he primarily specialized in thermal and material processing.

      He was a member of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), where he enhanced his skills as an Amateur Radio Operator.

      Sylvester was able to embark on many travel adventures through his work as an engineer. He will be remembered for his outgoing and fun attitude and also for his caring heart towards animals. Sylvester truly enjoyed every moment he spent with his family, especially his dear wife, Jane. From the first moment they met, they both knew they had found that love of their life. [2]
