Sidney Artellan, a retired service station owner from Seaside, died Friday at the Monterey Convalescent Hospital following a lengthy illness. He was 84.

Mr. Artellan was born in Monterey and had lived on the Monterey Peninsula his entire life. He owned and operated Artellan Shell Station, which was located at Del Monte Avenue and Adams Street in Monterey from 1941 to 1946.

He later worked for Monterey Savings as a parking lot attendant until he retired.

Mr. Artellan, who played the saxophone and clarinet, also led the Artellan band, which played at weddings and many local functions. He was a member of the Musicians Association of Monterey County local 616.

He is survived by a son, Delbert, of Livermore, his sister-in-law, Hazel Hanna of Seaside, one niece and one nephew.

Prayer services are scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday in the Santa Rosalia Chapel in San Carlos Cemetery. Mission Mortuary is in charge of arrangements.

The family suggests any memorial contributions go to the donor's favorite charity.
