Deepest Sympathy

The GHNPSS Board, staff and members are saddened at the loss of Robert Sykes, longtime Volunteer; friend and supporter of The PEAK Center.

He was a member of Trinity Episcopal Church of Ambler, PA. He served as an Episcopalian minister for over 25 years and he was also a Registered Nurse. 

He held Masters Degrees in Gerontology from The University of Pennsylvania and in Divinity from the Philadelphia Divinity School. Robert was a volunteer APPRISE counselor at the PEAK Center in Lansdale, and an advocate advisor on health insurance and income taxes for senior citizens.
