On Saturday, September 21, 2019, my light, my heart, my true love, my King, the other half of my soul, Sidney, passed from this realm on to the next. He has returned to the Universe, a shining star in her heavens. He was my angel, my husband, my best friend and always will be. He adored his family, his friends and his fans. This came as a shock to all of us. We, as a family, are asking that our privacy and time to mourn be respected. Sidney Eddie Mosesian 7/14/39 - 9/21/19 Husband, Father, Grandfather, Friend.

Farewell to a wonderful character actor. Sid Haig always gave his all in everything he appeared in, big or small, often stealing every scene he was in. He will be missed. pic.twitter.com/WRilpom8iy— 📽️Ron🎞️ (@ACelluloidJam) September 23, 2019
