West­mount Sid

Lother­ing­ton, fancy dresser, and ac­com­plished gam­bler, steel­worker, coach, fa­ther and best friend, died on Thurs­day, July 23, 2015, peace­fully in his sleep af­ter los­ing a bat­tle to can­cer.

Sid Lother­ing­ton leaves be­hind his wife, Nancy (MacNeil), and two sons Stephen (Sara Lynn) and Michael (Kr­ishna), and five grand­chil­dren John, Ni­cholas, Hay­den, Emma, and Ry­der. His sib­lings Doreen, Ed­ward, Sheila, Charles (Su­san), Kenny (Wanda), Gor­don ( Jody), Va­lerie, as well as many nieces and neph­ews.
