Long-Time NCOA Official, Larry Sidener, passes away ...

Long-Time NCOA Official, Larry Sidener, past away Monday morning.

Larry will be long remembered for his gentle, quiet style.  He also volunteered for many years in CA District 7 Little League where he also served as treasurer on their district staff.

Larry was diagnosed with cancer in the early spring and had gone through a number of treatments. 

Larry and his wife, Kathy, had a large extended family.  They had been foster parents for a number of years and adopted many of those same children. 

Please remember Larry's family in your thoughts and prayers as they and our umpire community deal with this loss ...

Larry will be missed greatly by all that he touched ...

Here's additional information concerning Larry's Services for those wishing to pay their respects ...

The viewing for Larry Sidener will be Thursday at the Harry A. Nauman and Son Funeral Home on Freeport Blvd from 5 - 8. Services will be on Friday at 1st United Methodist Church on 21st and J at 11am with a reception to follow, also at the church.

His wife Kathy suggested that donations be given on behalf of Larry to either Vitas Hospice or the 1st United Methodist Church Bell Choir. Larry was instrumental in creating and participated in the bell choir for many years.

I started umpiring with Larry

I started umpiring with Larry in SCUA, 11 years ago. The games that could not be covered with that small umpire association he would cover himself, he was always there.  Larry is a good man and will be missed deeply.

Great loss of a good friend and fellow umpire

This was a great loss of a good friend and fellow umpire. I met Larry back in 2006, when he was Secty. of SCUA. He never missed to call every member of SCUA, for the meetings and always reminded us of where we were assigned. We did a few High School games together, and he was always punctual and ready to go. Yes, we all going to miss him. May God give Him Rest Safely in His Care.
