I worked with Cy on a number of projects at B&W. He was kind, intelligent, easy to work with at all times. He was a man I respected and I certainly enjoyed working with him. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this time of loss. May God bring you peace and comfort.

As a retired Project Manager I suppose I speak for the multitudes of retirees and current employees that worked with Cy over the many decades. He was always approachable, greeting everyone with a smile. He always looked at the good side of things and had a great sense of humor. He was very smart and discerning, always realistic and practical, with a keen sense of right and wrong in the work he provided his coworkers and the company. He understood the needs of others including boiler designers, heavy manufacturing, project management, and even utility customers. He was one of those people that helped make going to work bearable. It has been said by people that worked directly for him, best boss I ever had. He was a company man and definitely one of the good ones. To the family, please know Cy provided great value to the many lives he touched and we are saddened by his departure. A couple of thoughts paraphrased from one smarter than I. Weeping may last for the night but a shout of joy comes in the morning. Lean not on your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. May you experience His peace which surpasses all understanding in this time.
