Obituary Condolences

Sidney Edward Young (Yallowitz) was born on March 21st 1935 to Murray and Rachel Yallowitz in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, New York and is survived by his ex wife Marilyn, sister Arlene Sterling, his children Josh and Jamie, their spouses Malissa and David and his loving grandchildren, Samson (18), Travis (14), Sienna (10), Ian (5) and Thalia (3). After Graduating from Lafayette High School in 1953, Sid and his best friends all moved to Los Angeles to seek their fortunes and the California Dream, which they indeed found. Sid had a successful painting and maintenance business for over 40 years and never failed to be on the tennis court by 1 pm¿every day. Sid loved his family and children most of all and there was nothing he wouldn't do for them, as he was generous to a fault and they were truly his joy. Sid also cherished his friends like no other and could be seen eating breakfast with the same group of guys every single morning in the same booth at Nate N' Al's for over 50 years. They discussed current events, politics, religion, and the all the previous days sporting events. Sid undoubtedly had bets on all of it and 90% of the time bet the underdog. He literally knew everyone; and never said no to a favor asked, and never hesitated to ask on a friends behalf. He rarely if ever asked for anything himself. Sid was a genuinely selfless human being. There wasn't anyone who met Sid who didn't instantly fall in love with him and want to hang out and be his best friend. He had a charisma like no other and could light up the room better than the best of them. From Kings to Convicts Sid treated them all the same, he loved everybody and everybody loved him. The only thing he didn't like was BS, and he let you know when he heard it. Sid lived life on his own terms, never looked back, and had no regrets. To celebrate his life we will have a memorial in August.
