Once in a while you find someone in life that is pure kindness. I was a Nobody but he treated me with as much happiness as he did a Somebody. That's how he was - just a kind man. Rest in Peace Sandy.

Will always think of Sandy as one who loved to sing! And as others have said his role as King Arthur in Camelot at Sunset. Nothing like being in a hospital waiting room to hear a males voice behind you and realize its Sandy's!. I can not think of Sandy without seeing a smile on his face and Chris walking with him at one of our reunions. Love you guys!

My heart is sad. I have known Sandy since sixth grade at Margaret B. Henderson. He was such a sweet person. I always enjoyed seeing and talking to him at Sunset reunions. I still maintain he was the BEST King Arthur ever!OCUYUCAN

We first met Sandy & his family in the late 1950's when we were neighbors on Wyneewood Drive. Sandy was always so friendly & nice and when we moved to Kessler Pkwy, we did not know we would reconnect in Jr High & High School. Will never forget his athletic and singing ability as King Arthur in Camelot at Sunset. Then he dated & married my classmate, Chris Christie, which was a match made from heaven. So sorry to hear of his passing and will be praying for his daughters & their families and his siblings and their families who are still alive. May he Rest In Peace.

My heart is breaking over this. Alex has been my best friend since high school. Sandy and Chris, y'all were there to help me break into my cheerleading career, which changed my life forever. Y'all were always so positive and supporting. Your daughters are both so beautiful and are amazing moms. Those two now will carry your heart of Gold on forever. Peace to you.

I am sad to see this. Sandy you were a great friend to have. Our friendship started at Henderson, then Greiner then last school was SUNSET. After all those years we went our separate ways. All of those years going to school, you were loved by everyone. I remember the sandlot football games at the side Henderson. Your team always won. Now that your are gone you have left broken hearts with everyone that knew you. I have mentally been talking to my past and departed aircraft mechanic friends. They tell me you have a pair of modified Gold Angel Wings ready for you. Fly high and Fly fast. So long my old friend.

Sat next to Sandy in choir our junior year at Sunset. Always kept me laughing! Will always remember his incredible performance as King Arthur in Camelot. Last saw him at the 2005 reunion. He still had that infectious smile. "Good night, sweet prince."

Sandy and Chris were so kind. Sandy helped my then husband and I move from our apartment in Plano to our first house in Plano. I always remember Sandy as generous, helpful, and so kind-hearted. He will be missed, but the world is a better place for his presence.

My heart is sadden with this news. Sandy was the sweetest guy in High School. He had every girl's heart when he played King Arthur in Camelot for the schools musical. I know that Chris will be waiting at Heaven's gates for him. Prayers for comfort and strength.
