Sydney was an example of a truly respectful and kind person. I don't think he ever met someone that was not a "friend". Our branch has the honor to know Sydney - and he was truly a god-fearing person of faith. We had the pleasure of keeping in contact with Sydney regularly the past few years - and his spirit, kindness, and positive outlook for life never wavered. Sydney is the type of person everyone can learn from. His presence will be sorely missed, but his energy will never be forgotten.

Sydney was an inspiration to so many in the world of volleyball and massage therapy. Sydney had eternal youth and energy. I met Syd when he was living with the immortal Ed Glasberg in S. Yarmouth, Mass and they both mentored and encouraged my growth as a volleyball player. I was lucky enough to play in Ft. Lauderdale on spring break with Syd and we qualified for an AVP event in 1991. We didn't get to participate in the event b/c I had to return to college. Our paths crossed in Florida over the next 30 years several times, but never enough. My very last encounter was at Three Oaks Park and Syd showed up out of the blue with a friend and I was able to play against him one more time with my 15 y/o daughter and was able to reminisce about the past. I wish all of his friends and family by deepest condolences for our loss of such a great spirit.
All my best,
Mike Washburn

Sydney, you are really going to be missed! I can't even tell you how much. You always wanted to be known as a stand-up guy who did the right thing and you have accomplished that in spades. You were a leader to the massage community and a mentor to many. In 20 years I've never heard you say an unkind word about anyone. I thought about that often before speaking. You were always the one to step up to help out when there was a need - no matter what it was. You lived life to the fullest. I'm glad I could be there with you on part of your journey. And as we always ended our conversations: Love you!

Be nice if there were an obit for my brother. Guess that's to much to ask for.

What can I say about Sid the Squid! Was a great guy on and off the volleyball court. Always looked forward each summer seeing him on the beach and hearing old school vball stories. He will be sadly missed for sure. Peace!
