    I was fortunate to know Sid for many years and he was a good friend. He will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy on his passing.

  2. I will always remember the days we built softball fields on the old dump (now Hafer Park) with a radiator under 2nd base. Sid will always be remembered for his love of church, family, and sports. May God bless his family and keep them safe.

    I remember lots of nights playing at Barnett Field while Sid and my dad, coached Mark and Terry and Kay kept score. Sid has waited a long time to reunite with Kay. God bless him. He was a good man.
