Announcing his death, Susan wrote: “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.

“Goodnight, my love. We will find each other again, next time. I love you.”
