I have only just learned of John’s passing from a death notice in the Fall 2018 Exeter Bulletin.

John (aka Sid) was a 4 year boy like me who lived in Langdell Hall.
As a teen, he always struck me as a bit of a smart alec, who was both wildly brilliant and wildly independent.
After graduation, I only saw him once while he was teaching Math at Brearley.
I was happy to read the tributes here about the man who was a brilliant teacher and mentor to so many.
My sincere condolences go out to John’s family. He will long be remembered.

Mr. Sidoli, you have forever touched my life with your life lessons and disheveled genius. I looked forward to your classes, you made things interesting and seemed to have never-ending knowledge about everything. I see you when one of my shirt tails are untucked and when the math you taught me is reflected in the world. Youll forever be in my heart and mind. Rest easy, man.

Mr. Sidoli you were one of the greatest teachers I have ever had. Your words still play in my head Do what makes you happy and success will follow. You made school enjoyable and I absolutely thank you for that and I pray you are resting calmly in heaven.

He was a true Renaissance man-- capable and curious and interested in the world, and wonderfully able to intrigue his students.
"Sidoli says...!" Deepest sympathies to his family.

Mr.Sidoli was an amazing man. One of the most brilliant men that although I always hated math he never gave up on me. My deepest sympathies, thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends.

Mr. Sidoli was one of the greatest teacher anyone can ever ask for and even a better friend. He always had jokes to say and never paid attention to the clock while teaching because he loved his job. It was blessing to have him as a teacher.

Being in his class was an experience. Literally the only time I genuinely enjoyed math. He was a great teacher and an even greater man. He taught my class and I beyond math, and making us laugh hysterically along the way. Never were nor will be forgotten.

Sidoli was the best math teacher so I know and Even though I only had him my senior year he taught me everything about life. He was a father figure and this man will forever be immortal in my heart along with everyone else who got to know him. Funny how I was just saying I need to come back and visit him in Albertus and I never made it in time. We will meet again though and I cant wait to hear something crazy story about what hes done in heaven. Love you man rest easy :(

Sidoli was such a great guy. We worked together for two years at Blessed Sacrament. I wish we would of stayed in touch over the years. We shared so many amazing laughs during our fifth period lunch. Those memories will live on forever. We lost a great man.
