Mr. Sides was united with the Methodist Episcopal church on New Years Eve of 1849 at Springboro, Ohio. To this faith he adhered until death. He was also a member of the Masonic fraternity for a number of years. He took some part in public life having been a member of the Board of Education for a term of years.
Mr. Sides was a man of strong convictions, amiable, and a Christian. Fond of his home, his church, his lodge, his life was well spent in his beautiful country home near Waynesville.
The funeral of Mr. Sides took place at the house Monday morning at 10 o’clock and a large number of friends assembled there to pay the last tribute of respect to this honored man. Rev. H.W. Bailey officiated and the beautiful Masonic burial rite was used. A quartet of mixed voices sang two selections. Interment was made in Miami cemetery.
