Sidney Sid Shortt May 5 1948 May 17 2018 (age 70)

Sidney William Shortt, age 70, passed away peacefully at his home on May 17, 2018. Born in 1948 in Athens, Georgia, Sid was the son of William J. Shortt and Lois J. Shortt. Sid graduated from South Habersham High School in 1966 and then attended West Georgia College. The highlight of Sid’s teenage years was becoming an Eagle Scout and he was very proud when his two grandsons later attained the rank of Eagle Scout. After leaving West Georgia College, Sid purchased a 100 year old mansion and opened Headquarters, Inc, a boutique store in Carrollton, Georgia. In 1975, he opened the famous Maple Street Mansion with the best pizza around. He moved to Helen that same year and opened the Wurst Haus which was the first restaurant in Bavarian Helen. He successfully operated the Wurst Haus until it burned in 2006. Sid married Sherry Drummond Shortt on November 20, 1991, and she was the love of his life. They traveled the world together and spent 27 glorious years with each other. Sid was a loyal and passionate fan of The Rolling Stones, a rare coin collector and an avid protector of the environment. He was happiest at his home in the woods with his many birdfeeders. He always loved his cats and was never without one for long. Survivors include Sid’s wife, Sherry Drummond Shortt, his sister, Sylvia Shortt, step children Bill Pinkerton (Lisa) and Marni Flinn (Michael), six grandchildren, Sara, Ashley and Lauren Pinkerton and Katy, Justin and Logan Flinn and one niece, Marisol Vazquez and 3 caregivers Jill Fowler, Nikki Jones and Jennifer Whisnant. The celebration of his life will be on Wednesday, May 30 at Cleveland Funeral Home in Cleveland, Georgia.
