MANSFIELD: Sidney “Sid” Mabry, 76, of Possum Run Road, Mansfield, passed away Monday morning September 15, 2008 in Ohio Veterans Home in Sandusky following a brief illness.

Sidney was born August 5, 1932 in Elliott County, Kentucky to Hollie and Bethel (Johnson) Mabry, and served with the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Attached with the 377th Transportation Company, he was responsible for driving ordnance to the front lines and returning soldiers.

In 1950 he moved to Mansfield and accepted a position as a crane operator for Humphrey’s. After his 14 years at Humphrey’s Sid worked at the former Shell service station located on South Main Street. For 21 years, Sidney worked in the maintenance department of Therm-O-Disc, retiring in 1998.

So good natured, Sid “never met a stranger.” Having a servant’s heart, he was always there for friends and family. Sid loved fixing automobiles and he often used this gift to help others.

Along with his parents he was preceded in death by brothers Earsel and Ellis Mabry; and sisters Earnestine Day and Coney Dillon.

The Mabry Family will receive friends this evening Wednesday, September 17, 2008 from 5-8 p.m. in the Finefrock Chapel of the Marion Avenue Snyder Funeral Home, 350 Marion Avenue (Former Finefrock Funeral Home), where the funeral service will be held Thursday at 10:30 a.m. The Rev.
