Sidney Aaron Sigwart, 25, passed away on Monday, November 21, 2016 with his girlfriend Meghann Lankford and his loving family by his bedside in the ICU at North Suburban Medical Center in Denver, CO. Sid was being treated for blood clots in his lungs and although we don’t know the exact cause, a dislodged clot appears to have stopped his breathing and heart while sleeping. He was revived by paramedics and rushed to the hospital. A CT scan showed swelling in his brain caused by oxygen deprivation and further results from an EEG test showed a flat level of electrical activity in his brain.
Sidney was born in Waupaca, Wisconsin and grew up with a large, blended and extended family. After the passing of his beloved mother Vicky Lynn (Sigwart) Boucher when he was six years old, Sid was adopted by his stepfather, Michael Robert Boucher. Growing up in Waupaca surrounded by family and many friends, Sidney was amazingly smart and very driven. Even at a young age he loved the competition of playing chess and was active in the youth group at Community First Church.
