Sid Wolverton was my childhood friend from Mt. Lebanon Methodist Church. We were in the choir together and our parents were friends. I remember he was in a lot of the musicals in high school, but I lost touch with him at some point. I don't remember when he died but it was probably in the 80s and he died of AIDS, in Florida, I believe. My mother said his parents did not even know he was sick until they got the call that he had died. This was way back when AIDS was a terrible stigma, of course. I thought it was terribly sad because his mother, Jane, was a nurse and surely would have been at his side if she had known her son was ill. He was always a good natured, fun person.

I remember Sidney with great fondness. He was defined by his exuberant nature and his relentless sense of humor. Our families used to go on camping trips together to Raccoon Creek State Park and Potter County, and we sang together for many years in the Mt. Lebanon Methodist Church choir, along with Sue Fleming, Susan Pozzi, Bruce Pitney, Dan Hudson, and other notables.
During the last year or so of his life, Sidney used to call me in Alaska, always in the wee hours, and usually under the influence, and regale me with an hour or so of rambling commentary. I understood that he was on his way out, and assume that he felt the need to unburden. I treasure the memory of these conversations, and will always hold Sidney in my heart.
