Recently, Barbados lost a fan, a friend, and a longtime vacationing retiree. Born in Brooklyn New York, Sid Berman's sunrise was February 8, 1932 and his sunset, October 16, 2016. After a brief vacation visit in the mid-1980's, Sid and his wife Ella decided Barbados was the place they wanted to spend their retirement. They immediately bonded to the close-knit Bajan community that reminded him more than anywhere, of the warm feel of Brooklyn in the 1930's and 1940's. Two shipping containers later, Sid and Ella (who sadly passed in 2012) set up residence at Enterprise Beach, first at "Spin-drift" (now Little Arches Hotel), then again on nearby Joe Louis Blvd. Sid had an incredible spirit and contagious love of life which he shared with all he met. He was known as a dedicated husband, father, grandfather, mentor, confidant and friend. Sid's hobbies were many, and several were passions that stood out. He was a jazz aficionado, film critic, firearms expert, jewelry designer, history buff, and baker. Some would also argue professional philosopher and competitive eater. Always proud of his Jewish heritage, he regularly attended services in Bridgetown. Sid was also an honorable veteran of the US Armed Forces, and upon his burial in South Dakota received a twenty-one gun salute, truly an appropriate send-off. He is survived by a brother, son, daughter and three grandchildren all of whom reside in the US. The world lost an amazing human, a true gentlemen and a best friend. We love you, Sid..."for true".
