Adams, Sidney Ernest - With great sadness the family announces the passing of Sidney 'Sid' Ernest Adams, on May 25, 2021 at the age of 79 years.

Sid was a loving husband, father, grandfather/papa, brother, uncle and friend. He was born in Haileybury on December 14, 1941 to the late Ernest Adams and to the late Bessie Ross. Sid was raised in the Tri-Town area with his two siblings, although he also told many that he lived under the bridge in Cobalt at one point.

He is predeceased by his wife of 40 years Rachel Dubie-Adams in 2020; his stepfather Ovila Leveille; his stepson Larry Dubie, his son-in-law Allen Sherrard; his five brothers-in-law Robert Heikkila, Joe Lanouette, Guy Legault, Marcel Legault, Gary McLean; his sister-in-law Theresa McLean as well as his best friends Basil and Judy Neddo.

Sid is survived by his daughter Shelley Adams; his stepchildren Terry Dubie, Todd Dubie (Tammy), Jody Dubie and Tracy Plante (Chico); his sister Gloria 'Cookie' Lanouette; his brother Cameron (Dianne) Adams; his sister-in-law Michelle (Gilles) Plante and by his brother-in-law Claude Legault. He will also be sadly missed by his grandchildren Jerry, Hannah, Tanya, Travis, Ashley, Domonique, Isaac, Jennifer, Jessica, Micheal, Zachary, Mason, Hunter; his great-grandchildren Logan, Alice, Gemma, Maya, Owen and Ruby. Sid will also be missed by many nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends as well as his cat baby 'Shithead'.

Sid joined the army at a young age and he was very proud of the fact that he was a paratrooper. After leaving the army in 1963, he started working at Rexwood/Uniboard for 40 years until his retirement. He met Rachel in 1980 when he became the father to five more children.

Sid was a one of a kind guy and anyone who met him did not forget him. He enjoyed sitting on his front deck watching cars go by and chatting with anyone walking by. In his younger days he enjoyed playing baseball as a pitcher, playing darts as well as getting together with friends to play cards.

The thing he enjoyed most was spending time with his grandchildren of whom he was very proud of. Sid was a lifetime member of the Haileybury Legion Branch 54, which he took a lot of pride in.

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, the family will hold a celebration of life at a later date to ensure Sid gets a well deserved service by his family and friends. Memorial contributions in Sid's memory can be made to a charity of your choice. Condolences may be left at

Sid Adams was a wonderfully loving and strong character of a man. My family, the Noels, loved and still love him as a family member. He came to every gathering we had and the teenagers and youngsters all found him funny and nice. He went out of his way to coo babies and chat with toddlers, teens and strangers. Truly he had the heart of an angel. My husband Mike, is retired military, who entered the passing of a paratrooper and so far has seen more than 60 emoji's and 65 comments from fellow jumpers as they recognize his service. They always stay "Brothers". These entries are recorded with the Canadian Airborne Regiment Association. Sid was very proud of having served as a paratrooper. Both families being from Latchford knew Rachel and her family well and regretted her passing. Sid has earned his new life in Heaven and I hope he remembers to drink more water... a joke between us. Farewell Friend! Liliane (Noel) Scott
