He also served on the board of the Georgetown County Airport Commission. Sid proudly served in the United States Marine Corps. Sid is best known by many for the waterfront dining establishment, The River Room. As an owner of the popular downtown restaurant, Sid created a warm and inviting space for locals and tourists to enjoy dining on local seafood with family and friends. Sid loved discovering good food, wine and live music. His favorite travel destinations were New Orleans, Austin, Las Vegas and the Napa Valley.
