Sorry to hear about Sid. Just want to say we had a lot of good times when we were in school together. He was always a good friend. I will miss seeing him.

I am so sorry to hear of Sid's passing although I know it was getting harder and harder for him to get around and function. Over the years he was more than a customer but became a dear friend. We enjoyed talking about fishing and hunting, also talking about Carson Wentz and Easton Stick! Sid just loved to tell me about his old war buddies he had contacted and he would tell me Vietnam stories and I would tell him stories about my dad and uncle in WW II. Of course, Cally had to be included with a treat. I will miss you, Sid. Condolences to the family

I am sorry to hear of Sid's passing. We worked together at Tenneco and kept in touch over the years. I was planning on calling him a few weeks ago, wish I had.

I was fortunate to be Sid's next door neighbor for more than 15 years. We became very good friends, enjoyed lots of visiting and coffee together as well as watching sports on TV, and shared several birthdays and holidays. We also had many long days of fishing at White Earth Bay and other places on the river in his Lund boat, with Tipper "helping" with the fishing and eating a good portion of our lunch. There were also trips to Tobin for several days of fishing and fun. We had many additional adventures, and all were good. I am out of the area and will not be at services, but send my sincere sympathy to all.

I am honored to say the Sid was one of my best friends. I met Sid working in the oilfields and kept in touch in retirement. Although when I visited him I wasn’t sure if he was happier to see me or my dog Bailey. He spoiled her with treats. He would always volunteer to dog sit whenever I would leave town. Nancy and I would pay him back with tomatoes and green beans from our garden. We would sit and talk and solve all the world’s problems and watch Bailey and Cally play. With deepest sympathy for the family, RIP.

Working with Sid was always a great pleasure. He treated everyone with respect and in return was treated with friendship and joy. He was true to himself and carried himself in a way that brought people closer, a natural people person. He will be missed

They throw the word hero around a lot these days. Here was a true HERO

Sid was a great friend when we worked together in the Oil field after he left the armed forces

I met Sid when he became one of our consultants for Williston Basin Consulting. How little did I know then what a dear friend he would become. After many years, Sid was hired by the company he was consulting for. That company needed an office and a part time secretary, so our roles were reversed. He was then MY boss - although he wasn't always sure who wore what hats!! We worked hard, we played hard. Oh, the stories we could tell. Sid was the best story teller ever. He wore his heart on his sleeve and would do anything for anybody. He was more than my colleague, he was one of my dearest friends. RIP Sid as you have endured your share of pain in this life. My deepest sympathy to the family.

I had the pleasure of meeting Sid five years ago. At that time I was doing housekeeping and Sid hired me. Little did I know then, that we would develop such a close friendship! Sid was a gift to my life and after just a short time, I started asking myself, who needed who more? He was truly the greatest man I’ve ever known! He was like a father, a brother, and at times a Ninth child to me (we always laughed at that) my VERY big family invaded Sids life and he invaded our hearts! I’m certain that we provided Sid with a great amount of entertainment over the years, as we spent more and more time caring for him! Sid and I laughed together, ALOT!
There are really no words to express how deeply he was loved and how much my children and I will miss him! We feel a huge void already! We have wonderful memories that we will hold very close to our heart, of the most, gentle, caring, generously loving man we’ve ever known and we take great comfort in knowing he is no longer in pain and he is at peace!
Fly high our wonderful friend! We love you!

Family of Sid, sorry to hear of his passing. Sid was a very close friend of mine for many years. We enjoyed many fishing trips to Tobin Lake in Canada. Sid was an avid fisherman. Sid worked for me at BTA Oil Producers for 2 years. He was always a pleasure to work with.. Sid used to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with our family until the last few years when he had a hard time getting around. We always took Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners too him. I visited Sid every week until his passing. Had great conversations which I will cherish for life. His two favorite people were Carson Wentz and Donald Trump. RIP my great friend.
