Great memories of Sid for me was those long dark late nights out plowing on the the farm and over the 2way radio would come Sid’s voice to put a lot of life in to the night. I also got a big kick out of him shutting everything down to go to the Big Boy for coffee, had to get that coffee, lol. R.I.P big guy, I will miss you!!!

My condolences to Sid’s family, friends and all that knew him. He was a classmate of mine. A kind and gentle guy with a smirky smile that made you wonder what he was thinking. R.I.P. my friend 🙏🏼

Shawna, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Sid and I go back a lot of years, can't tell of all the fun times we had when we were teenagers. Always a smile and a joke. We talked about you every time I saw him, March was the last time I had seen him and of course your name came up! You were the apple of his eye, he is so proud of you. I will miss my friend.
