In 1970 he started working for Lacey Garbage Service in White Rock where he met and married the love of his life. In 1980 he moved his family to Courtenay where he worked as a mechanic and truck driver for the family business until his retirement. Sid loved tinkering, fishing, reading, family vacations, riding his Goldwing and cruising in his 66 Chevy convertible.
