Sidney's spirit, his intelligence, his great, quick wit and sense of humor, his wonderful laugh (that made everyone else laugh) and most of all, his unwavering devotion to his family, especially his three children are how he will be remembered by his family.

He is preceded in death his parents, Jack and Edith Schiffman Figa, and his daughter, Risa Fay.

The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude and appreciation for the wonderful care Sidney received from his dedicated caregivers from the Caring For You Agency; Chiquita Thompson, Judy Garriot, and Aretta Bonler. They would also like to thank all those who cared for him at The Forum at Brookside and his wonderful friends who were there for him through the years of his illness.
