Sandy lived up on 7th Street next to Woodie. I was in Wm. Carr and then Hamilton wth him. He was a pitcher and I was a catcher on our Hamilton Dad's Club team and Big Woodie and "Rubber Arm" Ray Kinkead were the coaches. Sandy had a good fast ball. He used to practice his pitching with me in the alley behind the houses. Sandy was always a good student and he had great penmanship that I always admired.

Bill "Sandy" Glendon was my neighbor on 7th. street from the time we were both 3 years old. I watched the Glendon family home being built. Sandy and I walked to school every school day from grade school through junior high. He had a very distinguished legal career and served our country faithfully during the Vietnam War. It is an honor to have known him.

Sincerest sympathies to Bill, Mathew, Rachel and Sara.
