He later returned home to Oklahoma serving in the Air Force Reserve before transitioning to the Army National Guard in 1986 and working full time in the Civil Service until he retired in 2007. All total Sid served over 39 years in the military. Sid always had a passion for cars and as a result bought, sold and traded cars frequently. He liked old cars and fast cars and didn’t mind starting with broken down cars and spending countless hours working on them. He often told stories of his 1950 Dodge, or the 1954 Ford 2 door post with red and white interior, or the blue, green and white 55 Ford Fairlane he had when he and Dorotha first started dating and several more cars that he owned over the years. Sid also enjoyed woodworking and regularly built items for family and anyone that mentioned a need. He particularly enjoyed spending time doing woodworking projects with his brother Bob. But, what Sid was most passionate about was his family. Sid and Dorotha were a team and together they always made sure that his kids and grandkids were taken care of. If you were around Sid anytime at all you were going to hear about his grandchildren, what they were doing and how good they were at it. He was always proud of them and supported them in everything they did. Sid loved his family very much! He was preceded in death by both parents, his brother, Joe Jordan and a nephew, Brian Jordan.
