November 24, 1963 ‒ May 09, 2020
Mansfield: Phil Sydnor passed away Saturday, May 9, 2020 of an apparent heart attack at work. He was 56.
He was born November 24, 1963 in Cleveland to the late Richard and Carol (Bambach) Sydnor and was graduated from Lexington High School in 1982.
On August 5, 2003 he married Tonya Beverly who survives. He was ever the doting husband, placing Toyna’s care at top priority.
Phil worked for Neer Manufacturing and more recently ABC Warehouse as a salesman. He could fall in to category of “master of b.s.” but at the same time he was “an honest salesman.”
Full of opinions, he loved to debate for the purpose of debating. He was an administrator for Mansfielders Perspective, offering criticisms, praise and poignant material on current political issues. Phil loved golf and flying his drone. A collector of vinyl, he loved classic rock and enjoyed his healthy record collection. A Cleveland fan, he followed the Indians, Browns and Cavaliers, but truly loved his Ohio State Buckeyes!
He is survived by his wife Tonya Sydnor, daughter Delayne Sydnor, step sons Cameron Welsh, Jacob and Lexi Welsh and Ashby Welsh; his first grandchild Pennington Beth Welsh; siblings Ginger and Spanky Hale, Chuck and Terri Sydnor and Richard and Tara Sydnor; mothers-in-law and father-in-law Karen Gillespie, and Carrel and Chris Beverly; and brothers-in-law Brian Beverly and Trent Beverly, and aunt Barb Abraham and Louise Ashburn and nieces and nephews.
A private family service is under the direction of the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home.
Donations in honor of Phil may be made to Tonya or Delayne Sydnor.
