Sidney was my neighbor just 2 doors down on Yorktown Road. We would sometimes hang together in the yard and rode together to work along with his dad and my dad Aubrey. My prayers go out to the family.

Sandra, Teresa, Shawn and family... Gina and I are so sorry for your loss. Sidney was such a great neighbor and over the last year I really missed seeing him in the yard and having brief conversations about whatever was going on. From the day we moved next door he (and Sandra) was so welcoming and generous. He extended a neighborly trust and I extended mine. Gina and I have been blessed to have him (and Sandra) as our neighbor and friend over the years. He is missed very much by me and my family. Please accept our deepest sympathy.

My deepest sympathies to the Patrick family. I worked with Sid on the Submarine program and always looked forward to his daily visits where we shared lots of stories and laughs. He was a good friend.
