Harold F. Sidwell, 81, of Cheyenne, WY, passed away May 16, 2020 at the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.
Harold was born May 14, 1939 in Fort Collins, CO, a son of the late Frederick and Georgia (Townley) Sidwell.
Harold loved farming and ranching and was actively involved in numerous organizations including serving as president of Belvore Grazing Association, Oklahoma Hereford Association, Wyoming Hereford Association, Colorado Hereford Association, American Hereford Association, Weld RE-9 School Board, Nunn Presbyterian Church, and deacon for the First Presbyterian Church in Cheyenne. He was inducted into the American Hereford Association Hall of Fame in 2011, and he was honored as a Century Hereford Breeder within the American Hereford Association in 2008. Harold exhibited many champion Herefords on a local, state, and national level. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father and grandfather, and his three passions: God, family, and Horned Hereford cattle.
