It is with sadness that Lakeville announces the passing of Alfred Sirlin on October 13, 2011. He was the heart of our company and will be sorely missed. Born in 1924, Mr. Sirlin was a proud veteran serving as a medic during World War II. He returned to the family plumbing and heating business after the war before founding Lakeville Kitchen & Bath in 1976. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Sylvia; his four children, including Lakeville President Richard Sirlin; and twelve grandchildren. May his memory be of blessing.
