Sandy was born September 23, 1962 in Taber where he was raised. He worked for over thirty five years on drilling rigs, where he was well respected and known for his ability to create a family like culture with his crews. In his time off, Sandy enjoyed spending time with family, especially trips to Oregon, swimming and wrestling with the kids. He also enjoyed spending time out at the lake. We will all miss the man we affectionately knew as the “Big Guy”.
