Mr. LaCroix was born in Detroit, Michigan on February 28, 1944 and passed on February 24, 2021. He moved with his family to Florida as a young teen. He played football and baseball for the Sarasota Sailors and earned dual Bachelor’s degrees from the University of Florida and an MBA from Stetson University while working after graduation.

Sid relished visiting and spending time with his children and grandchildren and attending their graduations, weddings and other important life events. He was also an avid Florida Gators fan and booster. He enjoyed attending football and basketball games and watched as many contests as possible on television – both men’s and women’s sports, whether they were major or minor.
