Sidney loved his family very much. He was a loving husband, wonderful father and “super poppy”. He loved to deer and turkey hunt with his grandchildren. Sid traveled the world during his four year stint in the navy. He graduated from Stonewall Jackson High School and the seminary at Nazarene Bible college. He was a member of Hurricane First Church of the Nazarene. Sidney worked at the US Postal Service and retired with 38 years of service.
