April 29, 1925 – September 1, 2017
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sigurd Larsen (Sid) who passed away peacefully Friday September 1, 2017 at the age of 92 at Mt Ida Mews Care Facility in Salmon Arm BC.
Sid was predeceased by his loving wife, Joan, in 2012, and by his brother, Norm Larsen and sister, Peggy Camelleri. He will be sadly missed by his sons, Donald (Denise), Richard (Ivy) and Cam (Marisa), his close and dear friend Marion, his grandchildren, great-grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Over his years, Sid wore many hats: he was an able seaman in the Royal Canadian Navy, a policeman, a rope maker and gas and pipe fitter to name a few but he was best known as “Sid the Barber”. He was served with the French National Order of the Legion of Honour award for his contribution and dedication on the beaches of Normandy. Sid made such an impact on the lives of others, he was a caring man, and always there in time of need to help someone out. He had a great sense of humour and loved to lift others up with his jokes.
Special thanks to the caring nurses, aides and staff on the 2nd floor at Mt Ida Mews. We are comforted to know he was well taken care of in his last years.
A gathering for friends and family will be held from 2-5pm on Saturday, September 16, at the Sicamous Legion. Please come join us to remember Sid and share some laughs and stories.
Rest easy now, Sid, till we meet again.
