Sidney and Paula lived in California for 5 years where they welcomed their 2 children, Robert and Sandra. Shortly after the birth of their daughter, they were stationed in Bitburg AFB. Their next assignment would be the most unliked, Norton AFB, Minot North Dakota. They did go back overseas and were stationed at Spangdahlem AFB, until he received orders to Holloman AFB, where he would retire in 1992. After retirement, Sid attended NMSU-A for a few semesters. Later he decided school might not be for him and went to work with the Civil Service as a jet engine mechanic in San Antonio, TX. He later came home and went to work for Sears and also worked at Samons where he officially retired. Sid’s passion was for classic cars, loved everything cars.
