Sidney was born in Cass Lake, MN on September 11th, 1963, the son of Leota (White) and Edmund Whitebird.  His childhood years were spent mostly outdoors with friends and family playing baseball for his dad and Gordy Giffin in Federal Dam, MN.  After graduating from high school, he attended trade school in Staples, MN where he received his certification in diesel mechanics.  In 1984, Sidney enlisted in the United States Air Force and was honorably discharged in 1986.  His adult years brought him to Minneapolis, MN where he started his laborer career roofing with Bobby Kangas.  After returning to Boy Lake, he continued to work at Menards Construction and JP Concrete.  When he wasn’t working, he liked to spend time with his dogs and his family.  He especially enjoyed when his great nieces and nephews came to visit and starting his mornings with coffee and TV, with his sister Myrna.
