Sid Crenshaw was one of my father's very best friends. They used to race Harley's on the beach together. As a kid growing up, I remember like it was yesterday meeting him at the prison farm by the incenerator for lunch often.

My memories aren't any more current than that, but I remember what a giant I thought he was. Rest in Peace, Sid. I hope you and dad are swapping lies in heaven together!
