Date of birth: 1948

Place of birth:  Roxborough, PA

Education:

Sandy (Bill) attended Sayre Junior High in West Philly.  He was accepted in Central High, the top public high school in Philadelphia during the time.  At Central, he participated in the J. R. O. T. C. as the Drill Core Leader, played French Horn, and had a passion for art.  He won a number of awards for painting, drawing and sculpture; including 1st Place for clay sculpture (man's bust) in a citywide art contest.  He attended Temple University, participated in the R. O. T. C., and graduated with a B. S. in Psychology. 

While at Temple, he married Terry on September 27, 1970, at Richardson Memorial, on 59th and Walnut.  They enjoyed their time living above the Christian bookstore, before they graduated and he entered the Army.

Career:

While in the Army, Bill became First Lieutenant in the Medical Core (25th Lightening Brigade?).  Bill got his first pick of duties and was stationed at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii.  While stationed in Hawaii, he took photos of the beautiful vista's so he could paint when he had more time.  Terry said she would go with him and she would watch him paint.  He started taking photos and never looked back. During his last duty tour at Fort Dix, he was the agetant, 2nd in command, to Col. Henley of Walson Army Hospital, before settling in Browns Mills, NJ.  When his service to our country ended, he worked with individuals who have intellectual disabilities at Johnstown Training Center and later at New Lisbon.  He loved his students and coworkers, so much that many are still a part of his family. 

Passions:

Bill enjoyed sharing his joy and laughter with others.  He was often described as being funnier than Bill Cosby.  His passion for art resulted in numerous awards for photography, including at the NJ State Fair, Perkins Art Gallery, Smithville, and many more photography exhibits.  He was also a member of the Burlington County Art Guild.  Bill was on continuous exhibit at Gallery 72 in Mt. Holly. Of the various charities he contributed to, his favorites were the Disabled Veterans of America and Christine Cane's Anti-Trafficking Mission.

Bill was musically talented and loved to pick up his flute and play throughout the day.  He loved landscaping, making a secret garden for his wife and grandchildren.  He designed a wide and magical garden full of Elephant Ears and Leprechaun homes for his granddaughter.  He shared a passion for football and vinyl records with his grandson.  Scott and Papi would talk for hours about life.  Bill also loved to sit for hours and put things back together.  He enjoyed making wire flowers and spray painting projects for his friends and family.  He also enjoyed designing Christian T-shirts.  Every morning he awoke with an idea of something he could create to praise God and tell others about Jesus.  He shared Jesus' love with everyone he met and became friends with everyone he met in his community.

Bill was a member of several church families, and the Lord brought him to the Fellowship Alliance Chapel as his final church home.  One day, he was going to the allergist and the Lord said, "You don't need to go to the allergist, you need to go church." So he went to the church that he was going to, then he said, "Lord you know I didn't want to go to a large church.  I don't want to get lost in the sauce."  God said, "I am telling you where to go." and Dad said, "Yes, Lord I am going."  He's been there for the last 6 years.
