- Sidney M. 'Sid' Davis, 65, passed away Monday August 7, 2017, at a Bangor hospital. He was born July 29, 1952, in Bangor the son of Ralph and Hazel (Wheaton) Davis. He attended Penobscot Valley High School and the University of Maine at Machias.
He worked as a car and truck salesman at Bean & Conquest in Bangor and at Sherwood Ford in Lincoln. From there, he went to work for Fred Hallett at Hallett's Doors and Windows in Howland and also in Bangor. He totally enjoyed working every minute and always said it was more like spending time with family than working at a job. That is where he found his passion for doors and windows and made many lifelong friends. From Fred's he went to Home Quarters doing the same type of work and then to Home Depot where he spent the last 18 years or so. He always felt it was much better to make a friend than a sale.
Sid was certainly one of a kind. Always seeing the good in everyone and everything, he had a great sense of humor and made true friends wherever he went. Always the first to offer his help to anyone who needed it and never ever expecting anything in return, he always had a heart of gold and a smile on his face and said laughter was the best medicine. No matter what he was dealt in life, he never let it get him down. He just always looked at the bright side and kept on going.
Sid is survived by a brother, David Davis and his wife Jolayne, of Milford; a sister, Betty Doane, of Enfield; nephews, David Davis, Jr. and his wife, Mary and son Kristofer Hoyt Sutherland, his wife Lisa and children Parker and Samantha; nieces Robin Chase and husband, Jed and Sheri Davis; special cousins, Paul and Joyce Thornton and their family, Ronald Thornton, Philip and Gayle Thornton, Jerry Granholm and Peter Shay. He also leaves behind special friends, Les and Stacey Stormann, Michael "Woody" Woodard, Dana Cole and Dr. Christopher Ritter, who Sid always referred to as "an angel from God". He was always there to get Sid through these past few tough years. He was by far the best medicine there was and the greatest doctor on the planet and a true friend. I am so sorry to leave out so many others that were very special to Sid, but I am running out of room, money and ink, but you all know who you are. He was predeceased by both his parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and a niece, Julie Moeller.
