With an inspiring message to last a lifetime, Sandy was known for being keen on enhancing spirituality and saw no ceiling when it came to growth in that particular area. However, he wasn’t always geared in such a positive direction. Having grown up in Connecticut, he picked up his first drink during his college years at Yale University under the impression that it made him feel more outgoing. Soon after school, Sandy joined the Marine Corps and traveled to Florida, Virginia, and Japan. However, his alcoholism only progressed over time. He was eventually able to find a solution with Alcoholics Anonymous and had his last drink on December 7, 1964, which was also Pearl Harbor Day, as he was always sure to point out to others. Sandy’s passing has reignited the basis of the principles behind living a sober life in recovery and applying them in the moment as life occurs to sustain the daily reprieve in spite of any trials or tribulations that may lure toward a deviant path.
