His death was confirmed by his friend and co-host Tintin, who celebrated him with these words:
“Sly … The hardest worker I have ever worked with, my protégée, co-host and adopted nephew… It’s nothing but smooth sailing now buddy! I’m hurting so bad, but at least I had the honor of seeing you in your final hours. Thank you for being such a good guy. Ciao Sly….Peaceful journey. RIP”
Sly is survived by his wife and two kids.
