Thomas W. "Wes" Cyphert, 70, of Buffalo Twp., went home to be with his Lord on Thursday, May 17th, 2012, in Good Samaritan Hospice, Cabot, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He died as he had lived, quietly and with dignity, surrounded by his family. Wes was born on November 12, 1941, in Saltsburg, the son of the late Allan H. and Ruth P. (Hamler) Cyphert. He graduated from Saltsburg High School in 1959, and was a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War where he served with the First Army Division. On his return from Vietnam, he served a four year apprenticeship with Oberg Manufacturing Company and earned his journeyman's papers as a surface grinder. Wes owned and operated Center Line Tool, Inc. from 1984 until his retirement in 2002, then remained as a consultant to the business until his death. He was a member of Cabot United Methodist Church where he served as a Trustee, was a member of the Adults For Christ Sunday School Class, Men of Integrity, the Discipleship Bible Studies and was an active member of the former Tres Dias of Pittsburgh. Wes's greatest joy was his relationship with the Lord, and with his sons, daughters-in-law, and his grandchildren who lovingly called him "Pop". Besides his parents, Wes was preceded in death by his brother and sister-in-law, Wilmer R. and Betty Cyphert, and his sister-in-law, Janie Simon Cyphert. He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Carol (Coffman) Cyphert of Buffalo Twp., his sons Sean T. (Jodi Kilgore) Cyphert, of Slate Lick; Craig A. (Diane Sarno) Cyphert, of Buffalo Twp., and Todd M. (Loretta Griffith) Cyphert, also of Buffalo Twp.; his grandchildren, Clayton Allen, Dean Michael, Noah Thomas, Nicholas Wesley, Victoria Paige, and Haleigh Donne.

(Bertha) of Ohio, Donald L. (Carol) of New Mexico; cousins Robert (Carol) Hund of Erie, Norma Sokolowski, of California, and his brother and sister-in-law Paul (Pat Coffman) Feder, of Texas.

I offer my deepest sympathy to the Cyphert family. I met Wes through the Center Line website and admired him for his forsight, friendliness, intelligence, and the mentoring to his sons. He always had a smile when he greeted you. He will be deeply missed.

Dear Carol, Sean and Jodi, Carig and Diane, Todd and Loretta, and families,

I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Wes. I have nothing but wonderful memories going back over 30 years of him. His constant smile, warm heart, and gentle manner are only some of the qualities that made being in his c ompany a true joy. I can't help but smile remembering him in his recliner at the house on Primrose, wanting all of us teenagers to be as enamored by the animal planet as he was!

He will truly be rememered as a man of love and grace. My prayers are with you all in this time of grieving.

Much love.
