October 23, 1931 - May 29, 2019
Sidney Joseph Billiot, age 87 and a resident of Pine, died late Wednesday night May 29, 2019 at St. Tammany Parish Hospital. He was a native of Golden Meadow, Louisiana and a former longtime resident of Chalmette. Sidney and his wife relocated to Washington Parish in 2006 following the destruction of Hurricane Katrina. Sidney was retired after a career in construction and carpentry. He was a “jack of all trades” as there was no building task he could not perform. He continued to enjoy woodworking later in life by making small pirogues and other items for his family and friends. He loved fishing and enjoyed growing peppers in his garden. Sidney was an avid New Orleans Saints fan and he had a special place in his heart for his pet Shih Tzu “Boo”.
