Sid was a local business owner. He loved to create and record his own tv and radio commercials. He was part owner of the original Barnstormers when they came to Des Moines. He loved to give back to the community. One of his greatest pleasurers was watching his grandchildren’s activities. He loved to play golf with friends and family. He enjoyed cheering for the Hawkeyes and a number of other teams. He was happiest around his family and friends. He looked forward to his time in Florida with his “Florida friends.” During summers in Des Moines, he was an avid gardener.

Thank you to the staff at UnityPoint for all of the care and kindness they have provided over the past year.

Sid will always be remembered for saying, “Where You Don’t Pay for a Fancy Store.”

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Blank Park Zoo or UnityPoint Health Foundation.
