Sidney Gould Passed away on July 8, 2011, after fighting a long illness. He was born March 10, 1933, in New Jersey. He is the beloved son of the late Louis and Minna Gould. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Dorothy: his daughter, Sheryl Gould: sister Linda Grant: sister-in-law, Leah Zimmerman; brother-in-law, Ben Cohen: niece, Hollis Grant and nephews Steve Grant and Darryl and David Zimmerman; many loving cousins and friends. He moved with his family to San Francisco in the 1950's. He spent his senior year of High School in San Francisco and graduated from Lowell High. He then returned East, where he attended Fairleigh Dickenson College. He moved with his family to San Francisco, where he completed his college career, and then went into business with his father. He served in the army during the Korean War, stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington. Sid and his Dad, Lou Gould, owned and operated Taylor Hardware on Haight Street until the late 1960's. Then they owned Bay Bridge Hardware, first in San Francisco, and then in South San Francisco. He was known all over the city as "the one to go to" for all hardware related needs. Sid was an avid golfer and tennis player, and enjoyed playing with a wonderful group of friends. But, most of all, he was a loving husband and father to the wife and daughter he so adored and will be remembered by all his family and friends as a wonderful, special man.
