I have wonderful memories of this precious man. Praying God's blessings on his family today.

Brother Sidgle was an icon in my hometown of Somerset, Kentucky. One of the greatest men I ever knew, I likened him to our very own local Billy Graham. He pastored and started churches, preaching numerous revivals and wonderfully officiating numerous funerals I attended over the years. He was such a kind and gentle soul, soft spoken and captivating, even an angelic peaceful presence about him.

My dad's (Dale Daulton) first job as a little boy was working in Sidgle's chair factory so he has always been a part of my life. Sidgle would give me a quarter every time I saw him, no matter how old I grew. The last time I saw him, it was the most precious thing. He pilfered through his pocket change and saw he didn't have a quarter. He had me hold out my hand as he picked out, counted, and place in my hand dimes, nickles and pennies, giving me nearly every coin in his pocket that day. It came up to 24 cents and he asked me if that would be enough. I have treasured this sentiment and kept this 24 cents in my vehicle console ever since. Many many people over the years have tried to take some for a toll booth or drive thru change or what have you and would hear me quickly yell, "No! That's my Sidgle money!" and they have been told the story. Over the years, I've been in a couple car accidents which I should have died from. I've always thought that 24 cents has brought me some kind of guardian angel protection. Maybe it is just the comfort of the feeling I get when seeing those coins and reminiscing back to that moment when the Holy Spirit just exuded from this man, that and every time I encountered him.

And now you know the story behind the "Sidgle Money" and a glimpse into the life of the great Sidgle Sears. How bittersweet to know this good and faithful servant of God is gaining his very special eternal reward and mansion in Heaven this Christmas season.

One of my fondest memories of Bro. Sears happened many years ago. He was the guest minister for a revival at Big Sinking Baptist Church in the days when church members invited the preachers to a meal before church service. We were feeding them one night and one bowl of food was pickled peaches. Bro. Sears had neither seen nor tasted of pickled peaches before, but really liked the taste. He ask if he could have one to take home to his wife. Gave him a pint. He certainly was a fine person, and an admired, respected minister.

May God be will the family in this time of grief. Bro. Sears was a great help to many in the ministry.
