Sandy had a love for hunting and fishing. He shared that love of being an outdoorsman with his children and grandchildren, teaching them how to hunt and fish. He was a handy-man and jack of all trades who enjoyed carpentry, building homes, and repairing anything that could be fixed. Sandy also had a passion for antique cars, his pride and joy being his 1955 Ford Thunderbird.
He adored his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Their favorite memories that they made as a family were from their get togethers and traveling. Above all else, Sandy was a man of great faith. He was a devoted member of St. Henry Catholic Church and was also a member of the Knights of Columbus. Sandy will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
