February 11, 1962 – August 20, 2009
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, Sidney Adam Edwards.
Sidney (Sid to many) was born and raised in Rocky Mountain House, AB and later moved to Calgary where he attended school at P.I.C.S. and then S.A.I.T. In 1981 Sid moved to Siksika Nation where he raised his children and lived the rest of his life. Sid took part in many sports, and has received many distinguished awards for his athletic endeavours, although his one passion from the beginning has always been basketball.
