ROBERT SIDNEY ASHWORTH (SID), 52, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, February 7, 2013. Born August 16, 1960, in Port Sulphur, Louisiana, Sid was the son of John Edward and Eva Gay Brown Ashworth. He was raised in New Orleans, LA and Midland, TX, where he played varsity football and graduated from Midland Lee High School. Subsequently, Sid was a proud 1983 graduate of Texas A & M University in College Station where he received a BS in Petroleum Engineering.|
His career was spent in the oil and gas industry where he was respected by all and known as a brilliant engineer, problem-solver and the ultimate 'go-to' guy. He was admired wherever he went, and those who met him, on the job or off, always counted him as a life-long friend. Every life in his path was touched for the better. And Sid was renowned for his love of sharing a great glass of wine with his many friends.
Sid is survived by his loving wife Lisa, adoring daughter Emily and her mother Honey, parents, siblings, devoted nieces, nephews and in-laws.
A celebration of his life for this Southern gentleman will be held at a later date.
Job well-done! Gig-em!
