West Sacramento, California - Before retiring from the Yolo County's Office of Administrative Services, John's professional life focused on improving the health of the more vulnerable of the region. John's record of community service in West Sacramento & Yolo County is long and deep, highlighted by being a founder and president of the organization that created the Salud Health Clinic in Broderick, and serving 17 years on the Washington Unified School District board.
John was recognized by many organizations for his dedication to helping people, the highlight being West Sacramento City Council's creation of the Salud Clinic "John Siden Award" for community service.
John loved vacations with family, gardening, music of many genres, and digging into his ancestry while maintaining relationships with relatives around the world.

This may sound weird, but I was actually looking for a family friends obit when I came across John's which made me stop in my tracks. I remember crossing paths with John many times while working at the WS Chamber from 1988-1994 with Steve Roberts. I do remember John being very active in the community & how soft spoken he was. He had a peaceful disposition about him. Gentle soul. The picture of him is exactly how I remember him too. His continued service to the community & the people will never be forgotten. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. In sympathy & God's Blessings, Tiffany Lopes Airozo
