Every once in a while a person will pass through your life , as did Sid, he left an impression on each person he touched as he passed through our lives.
We will be forever thankfull, that he spent 5 years as part of the LaCopa Inn golf Group, he added a sense of freedom to our lives.
Sid loved going to yard sales every weekend and always came back with some jems, Joyce shared these times with him. they had fun and came back and told us of all their finds, I think Sid found more things than Joyce did.
Sid was a free spirit and somehow that spirit infected us all and we will always miss that.
Sid loved playing cards with the group during the days and in the evenings in the common room.
To Sid’s family, we as Sid’s LaCopa family offer our collective condolences for your loss, your loss is also ours.

It Did not seem to bother the golfers much and the headed out onto the fairways.
The fairways and the greens are also in great shape and the greens are fast.
Twenty golfers took part and were looking forward to the days chalanges even thought a misty rain was falling,
it only lasted about 15 minutes.
