I remember Sid as never being cross with anyone. The earth is a sad place to be without him living in it. Hard worker and honest. Iwas blessed to know and be a work colleague of Sid’s. Rest in peace gods child. You finished your assignment here. Sincerely Brian Lee Nolen... Danbury, Saudi Arabia, and Canyon Lake.
