Alcide "Sid" Theoret

16 June, 193119 January, 2021

THÉORET, Alcide “Sid” - Sid was known for his love of telling jokes and stories. He made his living as a truck driver and imagined himself doing this until the very end. His sense of humour peeked through, even when he was very sick. He left this world at the age of 89 due to heart issues. He is survived by his beloved wife Edna (née Ivens), who was by his side for 69 of those years. Sid was born June 16, 1931 to his parents Henri and Marie-Louise Théoret in Bainsville, Ontario. He is survived by his brothers Léo Théoret (Bertha), Ron-Toro Théoret (Danielle), as well as his sister Germaine Drolet (Marcel). He is predeceased by brothers André Théoret (Fleurette), Fernand Théoret (Kathleen), and sisters Yvonne Gauthier (Donat) and Gisèle Bellefeuille (Paul). Many nephews and nieces also shared in his joy of storytelling and laughter. Although he was a man on the go, he and Edna managed to create and raise 4 children. Evelyn Godard (Dean), Henry Théoret (Joanne), Mike Théoret (Olive), and Diane Blue. He became Papère to Gilles Godard (Amy), Daniel Godard (Krista), Robert Théoret (Deb), Tina Théoret, Nicholas Blue and Madison Blue. He was a loved Papère and Papa to his Great-Grandchildren Jennifer Godard, Isabelle Godard, Janelle Godard and Monica Théoret as well as his step Great-Grandchildren Emaly, Casey, Trevor L., Mikey, Trevor G., Eric, Alyssa and Fred. Rose and Myles are his Great- Great- Grandchildren. All these loved ones will keep his memory alive for years to come.

Arrangements are under the care and direction of Lahaie & Sullivan Cornwall Funeral Homes, West Branch, (613-932-8482).

A Private Memorial Service will be held at a later date. Sid will be placed for his final resting at St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Lancaster. Donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Messages of condolences may be left at

Time To Go

Been lots of miles on many roads Haulin’ ass with all those loads Meeting people from near and far And perhaps a stop at the local bar Sharing stories and a joke or ten Never met someone who wasn’t my friend I’ve lost my temper a time or two The toilets were always too far and too few I’m tired now so it’s time to go To a place with less traffic, no logbooks or snow In your mirror I’ll no longer be But if you hear a good story please share it with me (Di.B.)

Our deepest condolences to the Theoret family. Kevin & I have
fond memories of Sid and many laughs we have shared over the years. Sid would always stop at our store in Martintown when he was passing through, as well sold a articular brand of peanuts that he cared for and would spend some time chatting with my husband and I over coffee that we never charged him for. When the ice storm hit we kept our store opened even though there was no power so the community could still get essentials. True to his nature, in comes Sid with a thermos full of coffee saying " This time it's my turn to pay the coffee". The tears still flow as I recall this fond memory.

We were saddened to hear of Sid's passing. We enjoyed his many stories he shared, his visit when we were in Florida and his visit to the lake. Our condolences to all the Theoret family.

When I started racing I never had any money to get gas or fix my race car so Pepere would come into the pitts during intermission and leave my grandmother in the stands so that he could sneak me some money so I could keep racing and then he would say don't tell your grandmother and go win this race. Jesus I'm going to miss my grandfather he was my hero.

Dear Dad,
We’ve had our ups and downs, probably because we were a lot alike. But we always had love, and knew we could count on each other. You made me feel safe, and I knew you would always be in my corner. I will miss having that sense of security and unconditional love. I feel honoured to have been able to share your last days. It hurt to see you suffer but a privilege to hold your hand. I hope you are in Heaven visiting with your family and friends. I found the dime you sent me yesterday:) thank you. My life won’t be the same without you but I will always cherish the love and laughs and our silly moments. Love you Dad.
