Passing of a friend and spiritual leader

Posted in Indianapolis 500 with tags on August 14, 2012 by davethekingwilson

Fr Sid Sidor passed this morning at the age of 84. He didn’t become a priest till he was 76. When most people were retiring he began what is one of the most difficult ways a person can live their life. Sharing the problems of others and spreading Gods word.

He would call me and leave a message just to remind me that God loved me and he was praying for me. Always there with an encouraging word or book that would help me be a better person. So happy that he no longer suffers and that God brought him into my life.

I ran into Dan in the media center at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on the morning of the Brickyard 400. He was there to take part in several ceremonies but took a couple of minutes to talk with me. Recorded July 31, 2011

Just found this while cleaning up my office. I love talking about the 500.

The first 4 Mays after coming to WIBC I had driver guests on with Pidge and Terri from 9 to 10.

Jeff was kind enough to pass along a copy to myself and Jon Quick the Program Director. Jon and I were released on the same day. March 5, 2009
