Scott was a 1968 graduate of Sidney High School where he was a drummer in the All-Boy Marching Band. “Scottie Dog” then continued drumming for several bands that included Big Z and The Continentals, Lincoln Street Cellar Gang, The Myth, The Outriders, Penny and the Loafers, but he loved the blues he played with The World Shakers.
He was owner of Scott Sidle Bulldozing for 45 years. He enjoyed shooting pool, drag racing, antiquing, as well as hunting mushrooms and Indian relics. He loved watching birds around his farm as well as sitting before an evening bonfire. In the fall, he followed the Browns, Lions, and Eagles alongside his canine companion Gizmo. Scott will always be remembered for his sharp wit and keen sense of humor.
