My remembrances of Sylvan are of how proud my father, Charles Evans Moore who was his Godfather, was of him. I remember Sylvan and Steven coming to our home every Christmas morning to bring his Godpa, as he called him, a Christmas gift. Sylvan and I were in touch via email for quite a while but then I lost his email address.

To Alice and Steven, I just learned this morning, Saturday, June 13 of Sylvan's passing or I most certainly would have attended the graveside service to represent the family. I know my father would of wanted me to.

I send my deepest and sincerest condolences to both of you and pray strength and comfort for the days ahead.

When I was a junior faculty member at the Beth Israel Dr. Campbell was a role model for his calm and wise demeanor (even in a crisis), his committment to patients and his respect for all team members. He cared for thousands of women who benefitted from his expertise and skills. I hope his memory is a blessing to his family

I treasured working w Dr Sylvan Campbell in labor and delivery at Beth Israel Hospital. He had a ready smile and chuckle as he cared for his patients who loved him. He was genuine, committed and soulful. And most importantly, he was kind to all. God bless him. He always spoke of his love of his wife and son. My deepest condolences.
