On January 10,1970 he married his soulmate- Ms. Nancy Case and during their 51 years of marriage they enjoyed many family camping trips. Sid enjoyed anything outdoors from Bird hunting, to fishing, to piddling in his shop. Some evenings he would settle in and enjoy a classic western movie, Gunsmoke was his favorite. The Tompkins household was always full of children and in Sidney’s eyes they were all family. He treated everyone he knew the same and never hesitated to help when needed. He was an exceptional husband, father, grandfather and friend. To his grandchildren he was known as “Pooh-Pooh” and there was never a doubt the love he had for each and everyone of them.
