Roy graduated from Union Academy, Belleville in June 1944 and immediately left to join the Merchant Marines, sailing the Great Lakes and around the world for over 2 years. Upon returning home, he joined a partnership with his father, Roy Sidmore, Sr., who owned and operated Sidmore Oil Co. in Belleville.

On September 12, 1947, he married Marjory “Pauline” Clark and resided in Belleville, until joining the Air Force in 1955 and was stationed at Fairchild Air Base in Spokane, WA. He returned home again to Belleville with his wife and first three children and soon after moved his family to Massena for two years where he worked as a welder on the St. Lawrence Seaway project. Returning to their home in Belleville, Roy opened a new Gulf Oil Station on Mill Street in Watertown and ran that business for about a year until he bought his father’s heating oil business in July 1959.

He later sold his business to Agway in 1968 and returned to the construction business as a pipe welder with the Plumbers and Steamfitters Local Union 117, Watertown. He worked on many construction projects in St. Lawrence, Lewis and Oswego Counties until he was elected Business Manager of the Local Union and then Business Agent of Local 73, Oswego until his retirement on January 1, 1990.

Roy was an avid hunter and since their retirement he and his wife Pauline have enjoyed playing golf and spending their winters at their home in the Villages, FL.

He was a member of the American Legion, Adams, Masonic Lodge 637, Belleville, Mad River Club, Pulaski, and Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Adams.
