Sid was a mountain of calm. EXACTLY the type of man you would want working on the space program. Be on your way in peace, Sid, to wherever the life after life takes us.

Hung out with Sid quite a bit in High School and have to agree with Tom Cooper he was very laid back and we certainly had some good times. Enjoyed the High School reunions and have kept Sid in my thoughts through the years. It is with heavy heart that I bid you goodbye my friend.

Sid was a close friend in high school, a roommate in college at the University of Florida, and over all the many years since. We had great times and memories at past Sarasota High School class reunions over the years. My wife Ann and I looked forward to his visits with Pam to our house in Atlanta. We enjoyed having lunch at various Atlanta eateries. Sid was the most laid-back person I ever met! He was a true friend and will be greatly missed. I'm certain he is busy up in heaven watching down on his children and grandkids, Pam, and his beloved Gators.

I worked with Sid at Boeing on the Saturn and Shuttle programs from the 1960's - 1980's. Always a gentleman and friend besides being a great co-worker. Sid had a sly and funny sense of humor which was a joy to us all.
