OXFORD – Stephen “Bubba” Bernard Siddall, 76, of Wheelock Street, died bravely on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, at St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester, nearly one year after a traumatic stroke. He is survived by his son, Michael “Doc” W. Siddall of Webster; his sister, Jane Montigny and her husband Paul of Bethany Beach, DE; his grandson, Gannon W. Siddall; two step-children, Michael Dennison and his wife Wendy of Webster, and Susan Thompson and her husband Troy of Brooklyn, CT; three step-grandchildren, Alexander Dennison, Alyssa Thompson, and Alexandra Thompson; and his first wife, Patricia A. (Hartman) Siddall of Naples, FL. He was predeceased by his second wife, Barbara K. Siddall who died in 2016. He was born in Worcester, son of the late Bernard and Gladys C. (Carlson) Siddall, and was a lifelong resident of Webster. He graduated from Oxford High School, and was a U.S. Air Force veteran of the Vietnam War.
Mr. Siddall developed his strong work ethic in his youth, working in restaurants with family. As an adult, post-military, he worked several union construction jobs and was later part owner of Homer and Foamer Company, and Up With the Sun. Later, he was a project manager for Energy Fabricators, and participated in an occasional union project, while also owning an area rental property. A young Steve was a car enthusiast, Corvettes in particular. He was a member of the American Legion Post 184, the P.A.C.C., and the T.S.K.K., all in Webster. He enjoyed skiing in his younger years, and more recently enjoyed playing golf and trips to the casino with the love of his life, Barbara. Most days, he would walk for miles in the morning with one of several family dogs. He was a fan of the Boston sports teams and loved attending his grandson Gannon’s karate demonstrations. Most of all, he enjoyed a cold Budweiser with his many friends, especially his dear friend Mark.
A graveside service with military funeral honors will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 19, 2023, at North Cemetery in Oxford. In lieu of flowers, do a good deed for a veteran, even if it’s just buying them a drink, in memory of Bubba.
Paradis-Givner Funeral Home in Oxford is directing the arrangements.
