Condolences for Dr. Sidney S. Micek

I was a couple of years younger than Sid at SHS> He was quarterback on a state championship football team, point guard on the basketball team and sprinter on the track team. He went to Kansas on a football scholarship along with another Nebraskan named Gayle Sayers. He was a kind and caring person and will be missed.

Nancy and I send our condolences to Kathy and the entire Micek family. I have wonderful memories of working with Sid on the Illinois Foundation Board. He loved the University and was a master of building new relationships and engaging new and old friends. He had a brilliant smile that was contagious and his kindness was felt by all who knew him. Sid will always remain in our hearts.

While I had known Sid for a short while through our association with the CDGA as the current president I interacted with him often in that short time. He was a huge asset to our foundation and we will certainly miss his expertise. My sincere condolences to Kathy and the Micek family.

So many memories of SID. HE was in our wedding in 1963. We played together in all the sports at SHS. Great athlete and one of my best friends.

We’ll always remember our trip to Italy with Sid and Kathy 12 years ago and our close friendship that has endured since. Many fun times and memorable discussions have been enjoyed. We miss Sid very, very much.

To Kathy and the whole family, my condolences. Sid was a friend from high school, and I loved seeing him at our reunions. If I had one word to describe Sid, I would say “kind.” He cared, and it showed. Rest In Peace, my friend. You lived a magnificent life.

When I first came back to Illinois in University Administration, in my conversations with Sid, he proved to be a highly valued, trusted friend, confidant, and mentor who always shared his insights, intellect, experience, empathy and humor to some of the frustrations I was facing in the "industry to academic administration transition". Our paths have less frequently crossed in retirement, but I will always be grateful for his friendship and mentoring. RIP my Friend!!

Mary and I have wonderful memories of working and spending time with Sid and Denise, then Sid and Kathy. Sid was a fine leader and, more important, a caring and compassionate man. I am deeply saddened at the passing of Bill Sturtevant last year and Sid now.

Sid was a great friend and a wonderful colleague. We enjoyed working together, socializing and playing a round or two of golf. Sue and I send our deepest sympathies to Kathy, his children and his entire family.
