My sincerest condolences to the Martin family.
My mother worked with Pinkie for many years at MCC and they were good friends. Sid was always a stand up kind of guy and will be sorely missed in this day and age.

Pinky, Matt and Kerry,
We were very surprised to hear about Sid's passing. Because of covid restrictions we watched Sid's memorial service online. We would like to express our deepest condolences to your family. I always enjoyed working for Sid. We always enjoyed going to dinner with the two of you. Pinky when covid is over George and I would like to take you out to dine one night. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Pinky and family, With sadness I remember growing up with Sid. We were as close as brothers as we lived a short distance from each other. Very few days passed that we weren't together. We went to school , run around, and shared many things. I could talk for hours, but only want you to know, Sid was very special to me. We went different directions as we grew up, and didn't see each other much, but so many memories will always be. Our prayers and love are with you at this time, We can't be with you as my health will not permit, but we will be with you in spirit.
Our love Terry & Bev

My condolences to Sid's family for your loss. My connection to knowing Sid is working at Morton from the mid 70's through the mid 90's.

A hard working leader who was committed to integrity and willing to get his hands "dirty" are a few attributes that come to mind.

I consider myself fortunate to have worked with and for him after completing college. This helped shape my work habits/ethics going forward in my working career.

May he rest in peace.
