In Our Opinion: Oneonta loses two giants of service


“It was God’s grace indeed, that Sid died the way he did,” said former A.O. Fox Memorial Hospital spokeswoman. Maggie Barnes. “It makes perfect sense that his wonderful heart just stopped, quietly and without fanfare. The same way he lived his life.”

Levine raised millions of dollars for the foundation at Fox. The Fox Hospital emergency room was dedicated to Levine and his late wife, “Smitty.” The Sidney Levine Conference Room was named in his honor at the hospital. His many awards included ones from the Otsego County Chamber, Boy Scouts of America and Hartwick College

Citizens such as Harlem and Levine cannot be replaced, but the rewards of their contributions will continue to enrich our lives.
