And his family couldn't be prouder of him. The Oprah Show gathered all of Sidney's daughters to put together a video tribute to their father for his 80th birthday. "I think my dad passed on to me and all his children to really have a sense of who you are and a sense of self," his daughter Sydney says. "He has such a strong moral and ethical core that growing up, we tried to emulate that."
"We're so proud of you," they all say to Sidney. "We love you."
It's a gesture that moves Sidney to tears. "Isn't that something," he says.
"To me, that's the measure of a man," Tommy says. "When your children are talking like that. That's what I want."
