My friend, Sid,
My very early remembrance of Sid Valentine was when I joined our beloved Senior Softball League
in the late 90’s. I realize you will all say I don’t look that old, but it’s true.
I was on a team, the “Ruggers” and a young man named Sid was assigned to our group (although I was younger). One of our teammates had relocated to Payson, Arizona & had arranged a softball game between us and the team he had joined. So our team, the Ruggers (don’t know the origin of that name) packed our bags and wives and sped to Arizona the next weekend for this fun filled gala affair. Sid & his beautiful wife, Lou and Donna & I double-dated to this city of Payson. It was a great weekend with my teammates, fondly remembering my buddy, Sid.
Rest in peace, my friend, we will miss you.
Jim & Donna Biksacky
